Words A single word can speak more than a page or a library of books and can transmit more meaning than a lifetime of lectures. What single words put together with your life tell us who you are or what your school is? Words draw us close together. Words sometimes drive us apart. Your words tell us the story of your life, your values, your goals, and how you view God. As I share with you a few of my words on the screen today, think about your words. What words do you not just use or borrow but what words do you own?
Passion What are you passionate about? What pushes your buttons? For me, Christian education is my passion. It saved me by introducing me to my Heavenly Father when my earthly father deserted me and my family. Passion is ……… Passion is extreme emotion. When you are passionate, you are not distracted by obstacles or negativity on the part of others. Passion gives you drive when you are weary of your journey
Joy When I hear the word JOY. several memories are evoked. The births of my daughters--especially the first. When my small 6 lb., 2 oz. daughter was placed in my hands for the first time, I was overwhelmed by JOY. The feeling that God had allowed me to participate in the creation of this precious little bundle. Then the realization of just how much God loved me swept over me. The Bible verse that states “that he cared so much that He gave His Son that I might have eternal life” had a new clarity for me. How could I surrender my daughter to die for someone else? That is how much God loves me. Love is …….. Love is the emotion of a state of happiness or well being.
