It's currently 12:07 am and I am at work. Why? My inner voice keeps telling me that God is using me and where I am is exactly where I'm supposed to be. Over the course of the past two years, I have discovered the word "passion" for the very first time and now it's something I eat, sleep and breathe. Most people equate passion with the word romance but it goes so beyond that. It's being totally lost in something you enjoy and believe in and surely something you can't put a price tag on.
When I think about the word passion, I think about working on my books, making greeting cards, starting a business, helping seniors, counseling young women and organizing something (anything). I certainly don't think about my current job. The word passion in no way shape or form fits into that arena. However; the more I read the bible, the more I let go of the fact that I'm not supposed to be here. God does not make mistakes and me being here at this very moment is exactly where he wants me. Yes, I have goals and dreams outside of my current employment, but when God says so, not when I say so. As much as I'd like to change careers and as much as I feel unappreciated and unimportant I know that I am a valued employee and I do make a difference. Just ask my 2 senior friends, Rosa 92 and Gladys 82. Two women that I would not have met had God not placed me in law enforcement.
