“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” – Matt 6:21
“Small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” – Matt 7:14
I find it quite amusing that you can stop a passion you love for the time being; but it sure does find a way to call you back to the forefront eventually. Whether you return that call or not is strictly your decision. It’s life’s way of telling you “hey, the option is there. you can’t say you never had another chance at it.” I’d rather not leave a stone unturned but isnt there a point where you have to be content you did all you could? Do you feel like you’ve given all you got? why does that itch to go grind out this passion return? or does it ever really subside?
“Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.” – Michael Corleone (The Godfather)
I don’t like running away from anything that my heart desires as long as breeds positivity. Even if I tell myself otherwise to go get away from entertaining the idea, I’m consistent in following my commitments. I’ll refer to Matt 7:14 again, as it stated earlier, “few find the road that leads to life.” It’s a fine line you have to walk in balancing when to stay on one road and when to get off another. You can be so caught up in wanting your heart’s desire, but is it for all the right reasons? If it is continue on, if not find contentment and take with you the gems of joy and knowlege.
The treasures we seek are not to be found because it never leaves us. If you truly have an opportunity and advantage to add more life to what you already passionately enjoyed then by all means take it. Time is not guranteed. Things and places can be here today, and gone tomorrow. Life’s like a painting on the wall; get to close you can’t see the details of the whole picture, but when you step back you grasp and understand what it is you’re looking at in it’s entirety.
We tend to live too up close to our life’s paintings and partly understand things. God only gives us a portion of understanding and we don’t have the patience to step back and trust that much he gives us. This is why God’s understanding everlastly reigns. For as long as you seek the heart’s treasure you will forever be restless; because your passion is timeless and takes a lifetime to complete.

“You see, dream-chasing is an occupation. Those with the job understand the process of manifestation. Your dream starts with a thought; then it’s nutured, achieved, and sustained. Then we go back in our minds for more work.” – DJ Drama
