"For years I tried to love God with my heart to the neglect of my mind, not recognizing my need to grow in the knowledge of the "I AM." Any systematic study of the bible felt mechanical, even a little like an act of faithfulness or an admission that the Holy Spirit’s insight during a quiet time wasn’t enough for me. But I was missing he important truth that the heart cannot love what the mind does not know."
Stop downplaying enthusiasm or apologizing for excitement. Enthusiasm and excitement are the very things that propel the world. Stop worrying about what others may think because you regularly drip passion while they play it “cool” and disenchanted. I can tell you with total confidence that although they may not ever admit this, those very folks secretly adore and envy your fire, but lack the courage to embody and drive it themselves.
