*Passion*

What is passion?

I feel like I'm feeling passion. Its funny how you think you feel something but you really can't pin-point the particular substance you are feeling. It may have stemmed from one thing, but now it has spread into so many areas, and now everything is so jumbled up. The passion is slowly mixing with faith, patience, virtue, strength, maturity, wisdom, and laws. For all you know I really can't tell how and where and why. It may have stemmed from eye contact or from laughter. It may have stemmed from me reading a book or a magazine. It may have stemmed from me watching a movie. It may have stemmed from me thinking of possibilities. It could be based on anything, this passion that I feel inside. So don't get it twisted though, passion is not necessarily something shared between two people. It can be shared between a human being and their job, or it could even be shared between a human being and a pattern of life. It could be between a human being and their Creator. But obviously, the most popular notion is that between a man and a woman.

Is passion accepting a fact or denying the existence of a fact? Is passion making abrupt decisions in the blink of an eye, or waiting for wisdom to help you make a decision? Is passion being honest or being dishonest for the good of the general situation at hand? Is passion bending one's rules or sticking to the law one has obeyed from time? Is passion waiting in patience until it hurts? Is passion seeing something you want but slowing down because you know now is not the right time? Does passion make sense or is it just for the foolish? Maybe when I define it, I'll become sane again. Its my 5 minutes analysis on passion...

There's one thing I'm sure of though...passion is what Jesus did when He gave His life on a cross, after being spat on, kicked, whipped, nailed, and shamed...just for you and me...

Looking forward to developing my thesis later on, urs sincerely.
