LIVING OR EXISTING?
The weekday traffic was unbelievable! I was driving to church.
Over the years of living in Mumbai I have trained my body and mind to cope with this kind of pressure. Instead I have learned to meditate and pray God’s Word, especially when I’m alone in the car.
The other day, some thoughts dropped into my mind.
Sometimes it seems that although we are moving in the right direction…are we truly living or just existing?
This got me thinking…and Scripture after Scripture came racing into my heart.
I am on this earth to just exist?
Of course not! I am here to bring in His Kingdom and to fulfil His will in my life with all the passion He has given me.
Passion is bundle of desires, hopes, interests, ambitions, dreams, and affections. Passion is what you love to do and what you care about most! Our passions are tailored gifts to us from God. We feel alive and fulfilled when we engage in them.
Paul never let his passion be abated all his life as a follower of Jesus, and so he finished well. 2 Tim 4:7.
Don’t just exist. Live life to the fullest! Get a life of passion for doing His will. And hey! Finished what you are here to do!
