The Sound of Rain

That's the sound I'm listening to right now, lots and lots of rain. A sound that reminds me of a time when I got stuck in the mud. The problem is it wasn't mud when I parked there, it was bone dry. But a heavy rain came through and my 4x4 Dodge had to be pulled out with a backhoe :)

When you get comfortable with your current pace and place in life, you sometimes get stuck. Even though you started with passion and determination it changes to be lethargic and unfruitful.

So how do you get unstuck?

Go back to your first love, whatever ignited that passion in the first place. Determination always follows passion, but procastination is born out of a loss of vision. Pray the Ephesians 1:15-23 prayer and rediscover your direction and purpose in life. When you find it don't think it's a down hill coast from there, you have to work hard at fulfilling that vision. You can never fulfill a passion outside of God, it will only be a cheap imitation.
