High Emotions/Temperature Rising

Lolllll....I remember a song from back in the day that explained how this guy's "temperature was rising," and it seemed so funny back then, but I promise you my temperature is getting really high right now. I feel like I'm on some rollercoaster, and I feel like my heart is being blown away. Ok, maybe it's because I just read some inspiring things...any thing that reminds me of passion blows my heart away.

First, earlier on today, I went to class for the first time this semester (yeah, we start real early), and I felt this strong presence all over me...telling me I could do it...cheering me on and on and on...so I know how true it is when the bible says that we have "a crowd of witnesses" cheering us on in different areas of our lives and daily activities (paraphrasing). I found myself understanding every single thing the professor said, I took down good notes and I was thrilled. It's not like I usually take bad notes or anything, but recently there's just been this newness of ease that I feel in my studies, and I'm sharing this with you because you may be going through some things at this point in your life, but my medical school academical life was not so tremendous before, but everything has changed now. Its been wonderful lately. So I'm saying this openly to bring glory to God...because it's a testimony, and I was created to make His praise glorious.

Secondly, naijagal blogged about some upcoming Nigerian fashionistas ("cranberry") and as I read about them, I sensed PASSION in what they do. Again, like I said before, any time I smell PASSION, I get totally blown.

I know why we can have so much passion that pushes us to a terminal goal.............the reason is that we were created in His image...God is passion in every sense of the word. He had so much passion that He took His time to create each inidividual in a very unique way, so that there is a huge difference between you and I, and still we were all created in one image...His image...so any time someone shows a high sense of creativity in whatever area (arts, science, technology, and so on)...it thrills me...

Thirdly, while praying, again, I felt this unusual presence that I don't feel all the time, and I knew that God's presence was in my room. It's like anything I do now, He's trying to tell me, "don't worry...I'm with you everywhere you go..." He tells me that He's my Shepherd, and that no matter where I fall, He'll pick me up. And that's just the best feeling ever, to know that when you fall, Passion Himself will pick you up to enable you to remain passionate...

Fourthly, as I was typing this, my phone rang, and someone told me some not-to-good-news that happened to them. But what a co-incidence that I get this call as I'm writing about God's presence and strong help being evident any where I turn to. It's just a sign that in this life, there will be ups and downs, but we should never let anything pull us down...in this situation, I know that "this too shall pass," it is WELL. Everything will be fine at the end of the day, its just a matter of time. Nothing is permanent in God's eyes, and no one can stop a man whose destiny has been carved out by God, and whose time is "NOW." What I will say is "don't worry...you'll be laughing soon after all this...trust me...I felt a certain morsel of regret at one time too, but it all changed in the blink of an eye"

Jaycee, when I started reading your post, I was thinking, "Yea, I feel the same way for the first few weeks of skool, lol".

Anyways, indeed, it's a great feeling to know that God will always be there to always pick you up whenever you fall.

Nice post!
