That Fire in the Heart

A few weeks ago, I met a man from Grand Rapids. We only spoke briefly, but this man shared some things with me that I really found to be encouraging. He also shared that he had been encouraged by another man. Apparently, this guy had gone out to lunch with a fairly prominent christian figure. The man was struggling with purpose and fulfilling what he thought was important through his occupation. He’s involved in music. He had been doubting whether he should continue in that direction. At that lunch, this christian figure told him to continue to pursue it even if how it would be of service did not make sense at the time. He said, “If you love it… there is a reason for it.” And later on, through this man’s work, I was encouraged. There was no indication that this guy was a christian from his music from my perspective. But I got in touch with him and was told the above story among other things. Fast forward a few weeks- this morning I was referred to a video about the christian figure my friend had gone to lunch with. This christian figure is Ed Dobson. I strongly urge you to go to the link below and watch this video.
That being said, have a wonderful day!
