DAY 19: PASSION
Here is the question that we want you to answer in today’s challenge: What is something that you are so passionate about that you would dedicate every waking moment to achieving it?
For us, spreading the message that you are designed by God for greatness and a purpose is something we live and breathe every day. We are passionate about letting the world know that they don’t have to settle for an ordinary life when extraordinary is within them. Our passion is sharing Oola.
As we dive into living our passion, it is crucial to understand that one day you are going to die. Yes, we said it. You are going to die. That may be a hard thing to hear, but it is reality. We are all given a short time on earth - some longer than others - and this leads to the next question: What will you do with the time you’ve been given?
In writing Oola for Christians, we discovered that Jesus lived with great passion. Not only did He preach and minister for hours upon hours, but His passion for people sustained Him even as He laid down His life for you and I on the cross. Many people attempted to divert His focus but, because He was so passionate, He stayed true to His mission and when we keep our relationship with God as our main passion in life there is no limit to where He can take us.
Day 19 - Today’s challenge will push you outside of your comfort zone on purpose. Once you answer the question we initially asked, we want you to declare it. Post what you are passionate about on Facebook, Instagram, the staff lunch room, the Starbucks community wall or on the fridge for your family and friends to see.
I am passionate about ______________.
By going public, you are pushing away your fear, releasing your passion and declaring what inspires you. Let’s be each other’s biggest fans as we begin to live the life God has created us for.
We have everything we need to live a life that pleases God.
2 PETER 1:3
God I come to you today and thank you for being so passionate towards me and my life. Your word says you know how many hairs are on our heads and how many tears I have cried. Thank you for caring about all the details that concerns me. I ask that you would ignite and direct my passion towards you. Help me to be about what you are concerned about. Please show me how I can live the reason why I was created.
