MY DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD

MY DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD

Being passionate is a double-edged sword

It is a formidable and invaluable weapon if we wish to finish the race

Of pursuing those dreams that burn up inside us

The quests that drives us

In our feeble attempts to leave a better world behind us

But this sword of fire that burns within,

Like the human soul tormented by sin

Rages a ruthless war where for every great battle won

The permanent taste of hurting another renders victories numb.

For she who wants much, will risk much

And it is that same zeal that leads one to triumph

Which all too often also causes irreparable injury and denial.

Being passionate is a blessing as it is a curse

It feeds the fuel that sustains the warrior on his crusade

But in overdose it becomes the poison

That eats up at your better judgement

And alienates you from the dearest of friends

One thought on “MY DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD

  1. I was really zealous as a young Christian. After a while, a man said to me, “Men, like you, who have great zeal will go through many trials so that the zeal is used properly and not wasted.”

    In my case, he was completely accurate. Yet, the zeal (passion) still burns within me, but is now controlled by the Holy Spirit
