What is Frankly Friday?
Let’s define Frankly shall we…
I’m over the fear & you should be too.
So let’s write…whether it’s about a situation you’re struggling through, a victory you’ve made, a memory that you can’t let go of…anything as long as it’s honest.
. . .
Last night i was talking with my dear friend Beverly about Passion.
We were discussing her passions and what the Lord could potentially be leading her to do in the next year. It was a fantastic heart-felt conversation that i was so blessed to be a part of.
It also got me thinking…what am i passionate about?
Now hold on, i’m not talking about what i like or enjoy but what i’m truly and utterly passionate about.
I had to stop and look up the definition of passion so i knew what i was about to get my mind into
Passion |ˈpa sh ən|
*Strong, barely controllable emotion.
*An intense desire or enthusiasm for something.
. . .
So there i sat, after Beverly left, thinking through the events, memories, and moments in my life where i realized where i found my passion, and what cultivated it. This was a hard process.
I believe there are so many things i think “should” be passionate about…but that aren’t necessarily the first thing i think of. I should be passionate about _________.
As i kept thinking of different situations and feeling like well that is something that should have evoked passion within me i realized something, my passion is bigger than most things society tells me i should be passionate about.
. . .
I’m passionate about broken hearts.
Sounds weird right?
Maybe it is…maybe it is exactly what i should be passionate about.
Every memory that ties into my passion relates to someone with a broken heart.
Because when we’re broken we are in need of healing.
When our soul is shattered there is only ONE answer to pull us back together.
Jesus. | Hope.
I find myself completely whole sitting with teenagers and hearing their broken hearts.
I find joy in offering them hope and light in a world that is so full of darkness and despair.
I am completely and utterly satisfied to build relationships with students and help them through their drama, through their rough or fantastic home lives, during a crisis, and in lifting praise to God for a fantastic day. I am passionate about helping God heal brokenness.
When i saw this quote on pinterest…it resonated so deep within me that tears stung my eyes:
Be a lamp or a lifeboat or a ladder.
illuminate, rescue, serve.
In my life i want to be either a lamp, lifeboat, or ladder to people.
I want to show them that there is a beautiful illuminating light in a world that is so full of darkness and depression. I want to offer them hope, rescue, and a way out of whatever life is currently drowning them with. I want to serve others and direct them to the saving knowledge of Jesus.
As cliche Christian as this may sound…i want people to know Jesus.
. . .
What is breaking your heart?
What is currently causing you to drown?
What is keeping you from a vibrant and freeing relationship with the one who gave you breathe?
