A Passionate Life

I seek a passionate life.
Not a life of drudgery,
Or a life of endurance.
I don’t only want to live,
I want to be ALIVE.

A passionate life takes courage
To stand out from the crowd,
To face the fears
To press on.

It requires me to say,
Close enough is not good enough.

I want to give my best.
I want to give my all.
I want my Lord to fill me.
I want Him to use me.

I pray this passionate life
Will shine with God’s Glory.

I live for Him
Because He died for me.

What kind of life do you want?

Yes! There's a huge difference between simply existing - and - LIVING! You expressed it beautifully.

"Passion" is the word I chose for MY word in 2010. Your words express my heart so well. I, too, would like permission to copy it.

A life that glorifies Him! A life that is passionate about bringing His Word, His hope, to the world.

This morning I woke early and stumbled to my computer. Feeling somewhat bleary-eyed and still slightly asleep, I thought I'd check my blog. And I am greeted with all these extra, beautiful comments. Thank you so very much!

As for permission to copy: yes, absolutely. I just ask you include who wrote it (me) and a link back to my blog.
