Passion?

Is it overrated? Overused? What exactly does passion mean? It’s in the movies. In the romance novels. One meaning for the word passion, as stated in the dictionary, is:  a strong liking or desire for or devotion to some activity, object, or concept. Seems I’ve always struggled in this area. Does that mean I’m not a passionate person? That I don’t feel strongly? I think I do feel strongly, about a lot of things, but expressing that desire ~ that’s the hard part. But the world’s idea of passion and God’s idea of passion are two different things. We need to not get caught up in our emotions, thinking that is real passion, but we need to get caught up in Jesus. He should be our real passion. Passion for seeing the lost turn to Him. Passion for seeing the captives be set free. Passion for helping the hurting, the homeless and the helpless. That’s the kind of passion we should be seeking. Not Hollywood’s version of it. That’s Disney kind of stuff. Stuff that will let you down and make you cry tears of hopelessness. My prayer is that He will give me a passion for yet more of Him. And to have His heart. To see the world through His eyes. That’s the kind of passion I need.
