Gods dreams for me came alive in my vegan playground. Wow, I never thought it would happen through this. All my passions suddenly came alive again and they're all lining up to accomplish each it's perfect purpose. Have there been hurdles and obstacles? Many. Will there be more? No doubt. I don't know all that's up ahead, but I know "The One" who knows. I can fearlessly face "it", step out in faith and live the dreams He's blessed me with. He's surrounding me with people to encourage me, support me, and teach me by example. This is so awesome. Living the life your passionate to share, makes you even more fearless when you have mentors and support.
My convictions do and will offend some. It's inevitable for others to disagree or share only in part what I believe. I have to deliberately choose not to become defensive. It keeps God's gifts in me flowing freely. Of course it's gonna hurt, but it's just a little tiny speck on the tip of a needle's point. What really matters, is that I focus on what my convictions and passions are. I have the privilege to bring what I learn to the table and share it with the world! There are people out there who want to share in it with me.
Compassionate passion is so beautiful. It helps me remember that we each have our own views and I need to respect them. It teaches me that someone else always knows more than me and that's awesome. My life will continually be enlarged by those ahead of me. Compassionate passion reminds me that my fearless convictions should point others to find more resources and information and ask questions for themselves. It should never be about any one's dependence on me. "Any gift, ability, or talent you have was given in order for you to improve the lives of others" - Lisa Bevere.
I'm fearlessly compassionate that God Almighty, the maker of heaven and earth, loves me (Zephaniah 3:17). I fearlessly believe that he's called me to my vegan lifestyle because it's what He knows is most wholly excellent for my well-being and the condition of my world's environment. I believe that He graciously gave me His never ending love and my vegan lifestyle as His gifts. I'm fearlessly convicted to love others with compassionate passion.
God bless you all as you live fearlessly,

Zephaniah 3:17 - The LORD your God is with you. He is mighty enough to save you. He will take great delight in you. The quietness of his love will calm you down. He will sing with joy because of you."
Psalm 27:2 - Light, space, zest-- that's GOD! So, with him on my side I'm fearless, afraid of no one and nothing.
Jeremiah 29:11 I know what I'm doing. I have it all planned out--plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.
