Got Passion?

Today’s word is “passion.” Do you know someone who is a person of passion? What characteristics do they possess? I would imagine that when you observe their behavior, it is evident that they have set personal goals and are actively pursuing them.  Today, I am making efforts to pursue a healthy lifestyle.  How I spend my days has changed.  I schedule time in my day to go to the gym.  This new priority has, at times, been inconvenient.  Not everyone fully understands why I am so passionate about keeping my promise to go to the gym every day since I was given the gift of a gym membership. Well, I feel that God wants me to be faithful to the commitment that I made to Him and to myself.  I am aware that new habits take time.  When we begin to change our activities, it is because our attitudes and our desires have changed.  God is weeding and pruning out my old, selfish desires that led to gluttony and obesity.  I am thankful that He is faithful and that He wants me to rely on Him.  Galatians 5:24 explains what is needed to achieve a new passion for life: “Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh, with its passions and desires.” I pray that each of us will renew our commitment to a healthy lifestyle each and every morning. Blessings, Linda
