Here is what I have to bring to the table: the idea that God has placed passions inside of us. God planted certain interests and needs inside of us that He wants us to use for His glory. Every single God-given passion in every single person is important and must be taken seriously. Personally, I am tired of seeing beautiful ideas blossoming inside of my peers that are only shut down by their own minds or outside forces.
“Maybe when you’re older.”
“Yes, great idea! Let’s have [insert the name of someone four times your age] take care of that.”
“It might be difficult for you to do that at this time. You don’t yet have the life experiences necessary to get it done.”
The theme I want to set aflame among my community is this: it doesn’t matter how old you are. You could be nine or seventy-seven. God has empowered YOU as His child, and He wants YOU to set His ideas into motion. Your passions may turn into thoughts, as mine often have. The mistake I always make is thinking, “Meh, I’ll do it another time.” There’s also “Yea, it’s a good idea, but who would take me seriously? I’m at the bottom of the food chain.” I feel God calling me to take it a step further and turn my ideas into ACTION.
My friend, that is the point of this blog. Blending the passions in my heart with the empowerment God has given me as His daughter. I don’t have my purpose all figured out, but I do know that the time for pushing ideas aside because we’re young is over. Yet, God keeps bringing to light this one flame that flares up inside of me: He has given me (and YOU) power to do great things, and I don’t want to waste that opportunity anymore.
