Moving Mountains

Fear doesn’t shut you down, it wakes you up.”

Is everyone going out and chasing after the lives they want? Are all people 100% happy in the jobs they’re in? Or the relationships they’re broadcasting on social media? Or simply, the life they’re living?

Are most people just taking what life is giving them and making the most out of it? Settling for what’s “okay” and then just choosing to make the most out of it?

Is there passion in that?

Isn’t that defined as “existing” rather than “living”?

When people get married then talk about how awful it is, does that mean they’re with the wrong person? Or when the job they’re in is great but less than fulfilling… does that mean they’re in the wrong field?

Shouldn’t life be about hitting all calibers?

Finding what makes you happy and going for it full force?

I feel like most of us claim to love a God that can move mountains but we settle for a life that is less than mediocre…

But why? I refuse to believe that that’s “just life”.

What are we scared of? Fear doesn’t shut you down, it wakes you up. The things that are the scariest are usually the greatest adventures.

Why don’t we just go after what we want? If God’s got us, who could be against us?

They say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. But when it doesn’t, find where they’re growing and pick them yourself. Go after what you love and make those dreams happen.

Even when you hit a dead end, it’s just another chance to pick it up and keep going.

It’s a journey that never really ends. And when it does, we get to meet our maker.

I pray that we have the strength to keep searching for passion over complacency and to never settle for a candle when we were taught to love the sun.
