Living Out My Passion
Sometimes I forget just how passionate I am about small groups. I mean, I work for SmallGroups.com, so I literally think about small groups every day. How can I forget about this passion? But alas, I do. It's easy to begin thinking that this is how everyone feels about small groups, that everyone knows the benefits and the reasons to join a small group. But that's simply not true. Actually, a lot of people don't. But tonight I finished a freelance assignment on starting your own Bible study, and as the words came fast and furious, I was reminded that God truly has placed this passion within me. It reminded me of just how thankful I am to be able to work somewhere that directly relates to one of my biggest passions. It reminded me that all the waiting for this job was worth it. It also reminded me that God's had this plan all along. I mean, I have a degree in English education, a Master's in Christian Formation and Ministry, and four years of experience working at a church--how else does that work together so perfectly? It reminded me to have extra grace for people who don't quite get it, who don't see small groups as completely amazing and worthwhile things . . . yet. Lastly, it reminds me that being able to live out my passion is a blessing, and I want to empower and encourage others to do the same. What passions has God given you? How are you living out your passions? Please share!
