AYD - March 6, 2013 - Passionate Purpose

"If you can't figure out your purpose, figure out your passion.  For your passion will lead you right into your purpose."
- Bishop T.D. Jakes

Sometimes the obvious eludes me.  I have an idea and then get so caught up in so many thoughts and I want to chase each one and then they span out like a spider web on the walls of thought and before you know it they cross and twist and each line has a ton of branches coming off and all of a sudden I have created a forest of Wants and Do and Dreams and Goals and I'm Gonna and Soon I Will and .... before I know it I have created a wonderful portrait of the Amazon Rain Forest and I cannot follow a single idea to a clear picture let alone a plan to get it there. What have I created?

So I look at the ball of yarn and my heart feels heavy for I feel all this desire to attack my purpose but my purpose seems to be so overwhelming.  And in this exhausted-'I don't know where to begin' moment, I see that I forgot to hold onto the one loose end of the whole thing - the passion that began my mind racing in the first place.  And often, it is here that we grab a piece of mixed up yarn, and we try to follow it in any direction just to find that beginning end piece.

Try your best to maintain a grip on the desire, the reason, the passionate identifier that ignited your fire.  Hold it in your thoughts, as your starter and the goal.

I realize I am referring to having Lost my purpose in the clutter, but it works the same if you are just trying to identify it in the first place like the Bishop was referring to.

We get distracted by all that is around us; especially despair.  Despair can often drain us of our emotional sight, our picture making ability that shows us the movie role we see ourselves playing in this wonderful life.  Despair can live in stress about money, work, family, goals, and.... hard to find my purpose.

Figure out your passion.  Figure out what causes the heartbeat to bounce.  Entertain the idea...the thought... what would you do if you could do THAT for a living?  If you could do that to earn money, or to be happy, and to make a difference.  Follow a different line of thought and consider it all possible.

Figure out your passion... and what you want to do with it... your Purpose will introduce itself to you.

Great morning, great day.  Great you, good day for others.
