What do you love?
I just want to speak from experience and go from a real place on this topic.
I believe true success is getting to the place where you’re able to do what you love to do.
That thing that you would do just for the passion of it but yet found a place where you’re able to get paid for it.
That’s a major blessing and I thank God that that destiny comes from him.
There is a scripture that says a man’s heart devices his way but God directs his steps.
I count that as true in my own personal experience throughout my life.
Not everyone believes that it is possible to make a living doing the very thing that you’re passionate about.
And quite frankly that life is not cut out for everyone.
We live in a society where as mediocrity and averageness is accepted and congratulated.
But nevertheless something special comes from the work of a man or woman who is fully engaged with what he is doing because of his love for it.
Individuals tend to feed what they love as it is said where your treasure is there your heart is also.
What is Love?
Really ask yourself, what is love?
It is written that love is one of the first fruits of the Spirit of God. Love is a very multi faceted, deep, complex, beautiful subject that always has more to it no matter how much we grow in our understanding of it.
We can look at the example that is well known whether you study the Scriptures or not found in John 3:16 stating that for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that who so ever believes in Him will not perish but live in an everlasting and eternal life.
This is just a sneak peek, tidbit, snippet of the infinite qualities and characteristics of love.
But yet it depicts the whole story of the sacrifice of a father for what he loves.
Quite often we will look on the television and read in the newspaper and watching the movies, and draw a surface level conclusion of what the depth of love is.
We know it is so easy to say the words love and I love you and to give the lip service and just to speak it, But the true manifestation of our understanding of love is to really understand that it must be expressed through our actions.
Beloved let us love one another for love is of God, And everyone that love is born of God and knows God. He that does not love does not know God for God is love.
That new testament scripture in first John Conveys the fact that we are all connected all inherently in God as we dwell in Love.
So to answer the question what is love even as we are tying it into your life’s occupation.
I do not believe that love can just be defined as an emotion or a feeling, it is rooted more deeply internally in the fibers of our substance.
And as we grow in our connection and our awareness of the nature of love, and where love comes from, we can then begin to build on a solid foundation a picture of how to love those around us and the things that we are passionate about in life.
We begin to learn how to apply our mind in a certain way, we begin to learn how to engage our hearts in our work, We prioritize our time around those things and people that we love.
We yearn to have more of what we love in our life and to share the joy that it gives us.
It’s never easy
Getting to the place where you actually are living off of what you love to do. Many sacrifices many difficulties many challenges have to be overcome to be able to live the dream that you imagine and that you have love for.
I’m just grateful that I’m grown in my understanding of what love is because of who loved me first.
And even as he has looked at my life through the eyes of eternity so may I also reflect that towards others through whatever gift, whatever skill, whatever talent, whatever profession that I have that I love to do.
