I began reading a book called "Cure for the Common Life - Living in your sweet spot" by Max Lucado. It talks about how God gave each and every one of us a unique talent or skill. On page 1 of the book Max says
"He tailored the curves of your life to fit an empty space in his jigsaw puzzle. And life makes sweet sense when you find your spot."So how do I find my sweet spot? The book does go on to help you figure out how to accomplish this with different sections to help you break it all down. It was very thought provoking for me, and (in my opinion) was a great book, worth the read!
So now I'm trying to sift through everything in me, to learn what unique talents and skills God gave me. It's a lot harder then I thought to separate myself from all the talents and skills that I would love to posses, and what God has actually given me. In the (resent) past I would look at family or friends that have talents or skills that I admire, and I would try those same things only to find I just didn't have what they had. I would wonder how they could make it look so effortless, but I was struggling to so the same thing? Those were talents that God gave them, not me. So as much as I may love or appreciate the work or project they can do, it was never meant for ME to do it! Hmmm... Interesting... Sometimes it's hard for me to remember that I am loved enough by an all powerful Father, that he took the time to knit in me all these special, and unique things that only I could have. That not one other person on this planet was given the exact same gifts, in the exact same way. God has something special for me, and all of you!
So, I am going to try and uncover what God has blessed me with, and use it to bring all the glory back to Him! All while living in my "sweet spot"!
