/ Passion /

God weaves a number of threads into our lives as He reveals His purposes for us. A job prepares us with skills for the next thing He calls us to.

This post was originally published on our blog in August 2018. We hope these words from Della Moya inspire you to see how God is using your purpose and passion.  There is such depth and significance to the word “passion.” The more I grow in my faith and become wiser spiritually, I see the passion God has for His Son, Jesus Christ. I think about the passion Jesus had to die on the cross in …
