More of my evolving passions pouring out

It’s really hard to be me someday, and today is one of those days.  There is allot of things that I am passionate about, and I think one of the hardest things for me is to keep giving those things over to God.  When I was a teen I was passionate about Christian music and had a desire to work in the Christian Music industry, but doors never seemed to open and I would find myself frustrated with a passion that I didn’t fully understand and know what to do with.  That passion hasn’t exactly gone away, but it has matured if you will, into a better understanding of who God is and my continued growth in Him.  Today, that passion is now somehow re-directed into the church and the body of Christ.  Today, it seems that the more I grow in Christ and understand His Word and His Ways, I have a burning desire to help people get to that next level in their Christian faith, and to see true, sold-out disciples of Christ moving as His hands and feet to a lost and messed up world.  The only problem is, is that I know it is God who transforms and all my best efforts to try and help God with that is going to lead to a life of frustration.  I know it all comes down to loving people where they are, but there are firey Christians out their leading the charge, and I really want to be a part of that passion and movement; and perhaps I am.  Perhaps God has me right where he wants me, to learn to love those around me, and not so much to change them.  I know God is working in me, and I know that He is going to make His plans clear at some point, and I guess right now, it’s a bit fuzzy.  So I’d ask for prayers from you all, b/c I know God is up to something, I just can’t put my finger on it at the moment.  Once agian, I must find a way to re-channel my passions and trust that He makes all things work for my good. In the meantime, I will continue to share my passions with others, and pray and  trust that God is moving in their lives somehow.   Blessings.

  1. I love your post. I know what you mean about being passionate. I have always been an obsessive type, so it was thrilling to me when God drew me closer two years ago, to be able to pour out all of my obsession and passion on Him! He’s the one who can take all that passion and the one who is worthy of it, right?

    I think my passion as far as service to God goes is to tell people about how much God loves us, as simple as it seems, it had eluded me for so many years. I think that is God’s purpose for me. But I don’t know exactly how that works out, like you were saying, other than to write in my blog and to love people.

    Father, I pray that you will continue to clarify what your will is for Robin. I pray that You will make Your voice and Your will clear to her, and continue to guide her in the direction You want her to go. Continue to feed her passion for You and to draw her ever closer to You. We know you have Your hand on her life and that she is precious to You. Hold her safe and secure in You. In Jesus Name, amen.

    Love, Jenny

  2. My prayers are with you sister. You are right on . . Changing is God’s part. Our part is being a vessel of His love. Interestingly, I believe that the love of God that is within His children changes others when we allow it to flow through us and not force our own ideas of love. Our focus is love not forcing someone down a path that we think is right for them. Sometimes people have to walk paths that seem to be in the wrong direction to get to the right direction. I know I did.

  3. I will pray for you robin. I truly believe that God is longing and desiring for more to do just what you have stated; the very last sentence of your post says it all. Believe it or not the ones that he uses outside of the normal scope of things are the ones that are the greater witness and who make the most difference in peoples lives. Be encouraged that even though you might not be smack dab in the middle of all the fiery excitement when it comes to the church doesn’t mean that you are not reaching and being a powerful witness for God’s glory. In fact your witness from the outside will probably make a greater impact! When it is all said and done the true change that takes place in peoples lives is not at the revival in the church or as they listen to a dynamic minister it is the one word that someone will say at the right time and place, and God will make sure that He puts you around those that you can be a witness to at the right time and in the right place. 🙂

  4. Thank you laddies for all your responses. It is good to know I am not alone in this; many times I feel alone and crying out to God in the wilderness. Your encouragement and prayers are much appreciated and needed. Thanks again soooo much.
