What Is Your Passion?

No greater love has any man, that he would give up his life for a friend. This is the weekend that many Christians celebrate the resurrection of the living Christ, others celebrate Easter, with bunnies and colored eggs. Having recently traveled to Israel, The Holy Land and walked the Via Deloroso, it is with a renewed spirit and heart of gratitude that I observe this time. But I ask, what is your passion, would you surrender your life for the life of another? Would you allow your old self, with the old unproductive and unprofitable habits to die so that your soul could truly live? Would you be willing to let relationships end that were in fact killing you? In other words, would you passionately pursue the death or ending of anything or anyone, that was strangling you, standing in your light, killing your spirit, meaning you no good? Sometimes, there are things in our lives, in our way that must die and be buried, but never again to be resurrected, unlike The Christ. What or who is that to you? What are you so passionate about, that you would be willing to kill that which stands in the way of your apprehension of it?

I believe that when we grow and move forward in life, there are certain aspects of ourselves that have to die or shed. I was the type of person that always needed many, many girlfriends and always had to have some type of activity going or always had to be at the center of some type of drama to feel alive. Now I find myself more than content in the peace and quiet of my home. Reading, walking (with my new puppy), enjoying nature (my balcony faces the woods and I have been watching deer grow over the past year, there are also 2 foxes, a badger and a few squirrels) and watching some on my favorite TV shows. This may not seem like a lot to you, but if someone had told me that I would go days without my phone ringing, much less the weekend going past without partying, I would have thought you were crazy. I can remember thinking about how lonely my grandmother must of been all those years she spent single and actually crying for her. But I can now appreciate her contentment. I left quite a few girlfriends, boyfriends, husbands and family members that were toxic to me in order to live this new peaceful life. In the beginning, it stung, but now I thank God for removing them. I am a different person because of it and I now know that I am living a better quality of life.
