Are you still longing to see and know your purpose?
Where is it?
What is it?
Where will you find it?
Well, let me ask you this:
What are you gifted to do?
What are your talents?
What do others say you do well?
What would you love to do, if time or money wasn’t a constraint?
What legacy would you love to leave?
What do you dream of doing?
There is something so precious about all those answers. They begin to explain and reveal the purpose of your uniqueness, your call. If you’ve never taken time to examine and know yourself deep down to the core, take some moments – days – or weeks to do that. There are plenty of scriptures that ask us to search, examine and know our hearts. Get a journal and start with the questions above. I think God is honored when we view our lives important enough in His eyes to search ourselves and learn about our strengths and purpose.
If those questions seem vague and you want to see more clarity of purpose, then ask yourself “what do I consider my sweet spot?”
Your sweet spot is a place in time where all your gifts, talents, and emotions come together to stir your heart. There can be laughter, tears (which we’ll talk about tomorrow) or a righteous anger that builds up within when you are in that place. It’s that moment when you stop yourself and say “this is what I was made for.”
There is nothing more exhilarating than that sweet spot. Your heart quickens, your soul longs for more time there, and your mind continues to dwell in that place. Your life converges as a whole and you just know “this is it!” Yes, this is what I’m called to do. Ah, that is an incredible feeling and place to be. If you have ever to experience that feeling, you know that you know — this is it!
We talked about life being an ooey-gooey chocolate cake on Day 7. The sweet spot is found when we become aware of those precious ingredients in our life that are unique to us and begin living our life intentionally in that place.
I’d love to hear about your sweet spot.
