Following Your Heart

Recently a friend from work left the company to pursue her true heart's desire - to be a missionary and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ in hurting places throughout the world. Wow, what a high calling and a special anointing. Her team threw a going away party but she really wasn't leaving us, just moving into a new season in her life. She is training now and in a few months will be in some part of Africa sharing the story of Jesus Christ, and helping make life better for the people she will be living with during her assignment.

She is the 3rd person within the last 2 months who made a decision to let go of what seemed "comfortable" to pursue their heart's love. I have to admit that I have a burning heart's desire that I need to pursue. And, would you like to know a secret? More often than not, so do you.

Why do we stay in places that don't fulfill us instead of letting go, trusting God, and really pursuing what makes us happy? I don't know the answer, but here's what I do know and have learned from working in places where I was not happy or fulfilled:

If you're not willing to take a risk, you cannot grow.
If you cannot grow, you cannot become your best.
And if you cannot become your best, you won't be happy.
And if you can't be happy, then what else is there?

A little something for all of us to think and blessed, keep shooting and never give up on your dreams!
