Once we orient our lives to the greater purposes of God, we’re ready to hear the specific works he has for us to do in life. These works may be a career, or they may simply be a calling we invest in outside of our monthly paycheck.
The goal is to find our personal sweet spot. This is the place where we feel like the work we’re doing perfectly aligns with how we were created. As we do this work we feel fulfilled. We’re good at it, and love doing it. Chances are it will be a place you naturally tend to lean towards and doing it takes less energy and challenge than other places.
For example, someone who loves to speak before crowds may find writing what they’ll say to come pretty easy. Then, they’ll be able to stand in front of the crowd and easy sway them towards a certain belief or action. Others would find the task of writing a talk terrifying; giving a talk even more so. But, for some people speaking in front of crowds is their sweet spot.
You can explore your purpose by examining your gifts, talents, and passions.
