Lean Into What You Love

In my line of work, it’s usually full-on craziness. I mean, typically, we have to remind ourselves to slow down, catch our breath and simply pray.

Project details are flying everywhere. Deadlines are smacking us in the face and good things are happening. Really good things!

And I love it.

Sure, there are plenty of things that aren’t right about it and that I don’t love. Just like the rest of life, it has more flaws than I care to think about. And sometimes, it’s just downright messed up.

But, here’s the deal. My motivation factor is off the charts because I’m doing what I love.

I’m highly motivated to help ministries connect with people at a deeper level. What we do goes way beyond pumping out top-shelf creative assets. It’s about inspiring and moving people. It’s about change.

I know it can be tough, but you really should lean into what you love.

Focus there. Spend more time there. Pour your best energy there. Build there.

You will not only be more motivated, but you will also do something that matters to the rest of the world.

Are you?

  1. It's tough when your calling, what you love, isn't what is paying the bills. The career vs. the call. Waiting on the door to open, and when it does I will not just lean, but run through it.

    • Robert, I know that can be extremely frustrating! It's great to understand and know that He will definitely open those doors. Hang in there and thanks for the comments.

  2. I find myself interested in too many things… and so must FOCUS… but yes, when we do what we love it doesn't seem like work. My chronic illness ministry is what helps me cope with physical pain… I jokingly say I get "obsessed, not depressed." My theory is always be doing SOMETHING you love, even when time or energy is tight, because adrenaline will get you though it and carry over into the stuff you must do but do not like as well.
