God doesn’t do anything on accident.  He has a purpose for every aspect of your life, from your personality to your family.  God has given you your passions for a reason.  He created you just the way He wants you. Pursuing your passion can actually help you grow closer to God.

We feel the most joy in life when we are doing what God created us to do.  By living within your passion you can experience the full life that God has for you.  This is the sweet spot of life.

Finding your passion
It is very important for you to find your passion.  It is passion that will keep you going when you feel like you want to quit.  Living on a mission is hard work.  There are many obstacles to face.  Working within your passion will allow you to face those obstacles and overcome them.  It will keep you motivated.
