As I finish up leading SAVOUR, a Bible study I penned, I’m more aware than ever that each of us question if we have a purpose. Is that you? Are you longing to see and know your purpose? If so, let me assure you — you have a purpose. We all do! Sometimes it just takes a little digging in and discovering yourself to see it all unfold.
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. I encourage you to spend a week journaling the answers out. Asking close friends and family those questions of you. The answers will soon 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 (like right now) and start examining your life 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.
It’s about the sweet spot.
Recently I was frustrated with not knowing what I was suppose to be doing in my job. I reached out and asked questions about the frustration. I was so excited when the answer came back, “We just want you in your sweet spot!”
So, if those questions above 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 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!
I’d love to hear about your sweet spot.
