God Has Given Everyone a Sweet Spot

Called Us To Do

Then Jesus explained, “My nourishment comes from doing the will of God, who sent me, and from finishing his work.”
~ John 4:34

I finally got home. It was one in the morning on a Monday and boy had it been a long day already. The day before I had taken four eighth graders on a four hour long car ride and spent the whole day with them so that they could attend a christian concert.

Two out of the four of them had spent the night at my house the night before that so I guess you can say my weekend was packed and exhausting. There was a lot of bickering, yelling, and at times arguing but as I tucked myself into bed that morning, my body may have been tired but my heart felt so full.

Our nourishment comes from using the gifts God has given us to do exactly what He has called us to do.

It’s those moments when we put everything we have into a particular person, job, or hobby that we fully understand those words in John 4:34. You see, Jesus had a job and He loved every single minute of it. It wasn’t work to Him.

It may have been hard but every single time He healed someone and gave them the gift of salvation, He was nourished and that’s exactly how He created us to live our life.

I love those girls.
I need those girls just as much as they need me.

Every time I drop them off and am so exhausted that I can hardly get myself into bed I know that being involved in their life is exactly where God wants me to be. Today I am encouraging you to find your sweet spot. God has given you one so be involved in it as much as you can.

P.S. if you aren’t sure what God’s called you to do then I would highly recommend the Strengths Finder Test and the Myers Briggs test. They both helped me find my “sweet spot” and it really showed me that some of the things I didn’t think were so good about myself actually are an asset in the Kingdom of Heaven.
