Fire. Passion. Hope. Momentum. Dreams have this kind of spark.
Have you ever had a dream burning in your heart? It’s flames consuming your every waking moment. It won’t leave you alone. It won’t let you go. It wants you to stop what you’re doing right now and take notice.
This is your life. It is screaming from the rafters. Its voice is ripped, swollen, and bloody from every attempt to catch your ear.
I begin and end with one of my favorite scriptures in the bible. It’s all about purpose, talents, abilities and using them for the glory of God (my loose interpretation – I’m no theologian), but here it is from 1 Timothy 4:
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you. Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
