From Inside the Collar
God gives great gifts. You have great gifts. God loves you. It makes sense that he calls you through the things that you love. When you "unwrap" your gifts and use them, they will fill you with enthusiasm. (Because, God loves you). And, the more you use your gifts; the more you feel loved, the more you love others and the more we are all drawn back to God in his love! "Enthusiasm" is made up of two Greek words: "en" and "theos". Enthusiasm literally means "in God".
Serving God doesn't make you miserable! Serving God is an enthusiastic joy that strengthens all of us. So "love God with all your heart and mind and soul and strength": Be God's Valentine, now and forever!
