QUOTE OF THE DAY: “CREATIVITY UNLEASHES WHEN PURPOSE ALIGNS WITH PASSION”
Memory Verse: “I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh”. Ezekiel 11:19.
Successful people allow their God-given passion and talents to guide them in life. They have a single focus and an undivided heart. God never created you to be talented in an area, and then expect you to give yourself to some unrelated area. There is always a potential alignment of talent and passion, if you have the courage to pursue your life’s purpose and take risks.
People do not succeed by migrating to a ‘hot’ or lucrative profession. They thrive by focusing on the question of who they really are and connecting to what they truly love, and in so doing, unleashing a productive and creative power they never imagined. Here is what Paul said in 2 Corinthians 10:12-13 ‘We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves.[pullquote]There is always a potential alignment of talent and passion, if you have the courage to pursue your life’s purpose and take risks.[/pullquote] When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise. We, however, will not boast beyond proper limits, but will confine our boasting to the field God has assigned to us, a field that reaches even to you’.
Roald Engebreth’s mother had always desired that her son would be a medical doctor. Of course, Ronald reluctantly attended medical school just to please his mother who was the bread winner of the family. Ironically, Ronald was naturally inclined to polar expedition. Thus, he read more of the reports of the world’s polar explorers, however, than medical books.
After his mother’s death, he dumped the medical profession that was not natural with him and pursued with single-minded focus his dreams of polar expeditions. He became the first person in history to reach both the North and South poles in 1926. Love what you do. Make the choice to do something because it engages your heart as well as your mind. Make the choice because it engages all of you.
If you are confused, out of focus, or going in circles, halt it and refocus. Find out whether you are doing what you are gifted and passionate about. Today, God will remove all confusions and make your path clear. You are lifted!
