powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire."—
Field Marshal Ferdinand Foch

"Passion is the
mob of the man, that commits a riot upon his reason." ~ William Penn

"Never
underestimate the power of passion."
~ Eve Sawyer

"Chase your passion, not your pension."  Denis Waitle

Stir in Me

By Todd Proctor

Stir in me
A fire that the world cannot explain
I come to worship You
Stir in me
A passion that my heart cannot contain
I come to worship You

Hold me, break me
Mold me and make me more and more like You
I come to worship You
To Love You, fear You
Draw ever near You as I worship You
I come to worship You
Oh, Lord 

Philippians 3:8-14

8Nothing is as
wonderful as knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. I have given up everything
else and count it all as garbage. All I want is Christ 9and
to know that I belong to him. I could not make myself acceptable to God
by obeying the Law of Moses. God accepted me simply because of my faith
in Christ. 10All I want is to know Christ and the power that raised him to life. I want to suffer and die as he did, 11so that somehow I also may be raised to life. 12I
have not yet reached my goal, and I am not perfect. But Christ has
taken hold of me. So I keep on running and struggling to take hold of
the prize. 13My friends, I don’t feel that I have already arrived. But I forget what is behind, and I struggle for what is ahead. 14I
run toward the goal, so that I can win the prize of being called to
heaven. This is the prize that God offers because of what Christ Jesus
has done.

 ASK YOURSELF: Do you have a passion for living?  A passion for life ~ A passion for what you do or believe ~ A passion to contribute ~ A passion for God’s will.

John McHoul
