We all have a passion.
Whether it be to impact someone or reach others through something, all of Christ daughters have one similarity in their passions: Jesus. Jesus is the core and reason why we can do everything we do – why we can love mercifully, give abundantly, and offer what He has done in our lives through our passions.

Three years ago, the passion to write was evident to me. There were so many reasons to write and though I hadn’t figured out how, I felt Jesus place this passion on my heart for a higher calling. Two months ago, I was desperately seeking Jesus’s guidance on what He wanted me to do with my life – now and for a life career. I sought Him, I knocked, (Matthew 7:7) and He opened the doors right before me. I daringly applied to be a voluntary writing for Daughter of Delight, with many doubts that I would ever make it…and I made it.

It’s vital we trust that when we cry out to Jesus to use our gifts, our passions, our hearts, our lives for His greater good, He will open the doors to the right opportunity. In order to see Him do that, we must recognize that He has, He will continue to when we hand the pen to Him. Sometimes the very thing that we want or think we should have, isn’t ours to adventure out in. God’s purpose for our lives aren’t what we think is best for us, it’s what He knows is good and made specifically for us. Holding onto His promises, when doubt clouds our minds from believing that He will lead us to His ultimate plan, is something He encourages us to do.

I will make them and the places surrounding my hill a blessing. I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessings,” (Ezekiel 34:26). Have patience to wait and see how He will open opportunities for your passions. Living life being able to offer the world what Jesus has laid on our hearts is a blessing He grants His beloveds.

Your passion is a holy calling.
Whatever it may be, however you may feel, Jesus will use it to make His glorious Kingdom shine.
