Passion for Purpose Part 2

Deb Burton

"Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that previals"  Proverbs 19:21 (NIV)
" For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

This is an important message. Part 1 not only defined the PROCESS by which we can anchor our being into the Purpose of our lives, but the PRINCIPLE of the thing. Reread Part 1 to catch the flow and then go straight into what this PASSION really is, so we can apply it to the PURPOSE we were designed for a prosperous life - not in material terms, but in the riches and glory of our Heavenly Father, Who will reward the trials and joys of this life....in the life to come! AMEN!

Passion is:- 
- your heart
- something you'd talk about all night
- something you want to be remembered for
- what you'd most like to do for others
- what you'd do if success was guaranteed
- things which most concern you
- the ultimate to raise your enthusiasm
- what gives you the most meaningful experiences
- what will give you your greatest drive to succeed
- something that takes you out of yourself
- It makes you bigger than life
- it makes you attractive, good to be around
- it's good for others and yourself
- the opposite of mediocrity - and a life of "quiet desperation" [Thoreau]
- you've often taken knocks in this area yourself
- you've often had successes in this area also
- something you'll buy into until your last breath
- something you'd take your greatests risks for
- something that no matter how many knockbacks you get, you'll keep getting up and doing it, until you can't get up any more, because you can't help yourself
- your life's purpose
