“Why?” You ask. . . Good question (sorry, couldn’t help myself).
I want to provide for you two – yes two – questions to help you be the best YOU God intended.
So here goes. . .
Question #1: Can you link me to some of the ‘stuff’ you talked about yesterday?
Sure! Great question.
Yesterday – throughout the service – I made several references AND recommendations. Here are some links, FYI:
The Jesus Storybook Bible If you don’t have this yet, do yourself a favor – get it NOW.
Fox News story of mom determined to get her son back. Yeah, I absolutely love the part where he recognized her when “he saw her eyes.” That’s Mother’s Day gold right there!
Legacy Countdown App – Parents have 976 weeks from the time their child is born until they graduate high school. How will you intentionally prepare them?
Question #2: “What can I not stop doing?”
This question was posed by Jon Acuff in his new book Start: Punch Fear in the Face; Escape Average; and Do Work that Matters.
The book is about helping people like you and me quit coasting through life doing things we were not made to do and START pursuing work that matters. In chapter 4 of the the book, he suggests this approach to help his readers identify their passion:
“Instead of asking, ‘What would I love to start doing?’ let’s ask, ‘What can I not stop doing?'”
“What’s something in your life that you keep coming back to? . . . What’s something you can’t stop doing? Chances are there’s some passion or dream or activity that’s survived for years. . . You need to be a student of you. Don’t walk down this road to awesome as if you’ve never been awesome before. You have. You’ve succeeded at something. Something came naturally. Something worked.”
I think it’s a GREAT question. What is it in your life that you just simply cannot stop doing? Not because of obligation, but because of a passion or a burden. God made you particularly and specifically and with a ‘built in’ zeal. What’s yours? Can you identify it? Are you giving yourself to it?
I would LOVE to hear what you are currently giving yourself to because you KNOW that’s how God wired you. Please – do tell below. . .
