"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation." – Henry David Thoreau
“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” – Nelson Mandela
Living with passion means to live with intense desire and enthusiasm. Does this describe you? Are you thriving in life or just surviving? Maybe you’re suffering from Passion Deficit Disorder because you lack a clear picture of where you’d rather be in life. Perhaps you’ve buried your dreams and lost all hope of things getting better. The book of Proverbs says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick.” There are few things more frustrating than going to work every day just to pay the bills while your soul is crying out, “There must be more!”
Mark and his wife Suzan founded Life on the Verge Ministries in 2011. Since that time they have ministered to over 50,000 inmates across America. They preach that there is something far worse than the loss of physical freedom - the loss of purpose. You have a divine reason-for-being. The God that made you only made one of you. Your purpose is as distinct as your fingerprints and DNA. No one can fulfill your purpose for you. It must be discovered and pursued through the power of vision.
Mark Mason wrote this book from personal experience. As a juvenile he was kicked out of three high schools and arrested a half-dozen times. As a severe alcohol and drug abuser he was on the fast track to prison or early death. With God’s help and through the power of vision he was able to turn things around at 19 years old. He went to graduate college and serve ten-years as a police officer working alongside cops that once arrested him. The journey doesn’t stop there.
After achieving what many call the American Dream, Mark realized that he had buried his deepest dreams – to make a living playing music and sharing how God rescued him from self-destruction. He dug that dream up and nurtured it for over 30 years before the vision became a reality. This book will take you through that journey and give you practical insights into developing a vision that will ignite your passion for living.
