This blog has been wonderful for me. It has been an amazing platform to keep everyone updated and share more of my heart. It’s not just a platform but a learning experience also. I want to continue to learn through this, while maybe helping someone along the way.
I’m currently working on a couple of posts for this blog. One is called, “What is the why?” I spoke about this in my second post on this site. I don’t want to rush this post, it is definitely coming soon though. Thanks.
If you know me personally, awesome, you probably know how energy-driven I am. I talk loud on accident. I’m not shy and I’m definitely very playful! Laughter is medicine for my soul. Sometimes my personality can be taken as immaturity, when in all actuality I’m attempting to make everyone comfortable. My job, I don’t know. Beneficial, sure. My personality, absolutely.
I know this is okay, but there is so much room to improve. I believe recognizing weak points can encourage tremendous growth; spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. I’m learning that in being a leader, I have to practice balancing that part of me with the serious leader that I want to be. The leader that I’m called to be. In this season, I’m learning what exactly that “leader” is.
We all have special gifts that we’ve been given to use. First, you have to find out what that gift is. There are many people that have similar gifts, but I believe each of us have a “sweet spot” within that gift. A way that we can best use that gift and grow to our full potential. The “sweet spot” is that place where our greatest passions and our talents or abilities intersect.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not in a hurry. I was once told, “Ministry is a marathon, not a sprint.” And that holds true in all that I have learned and experienced. I think it’s safe to say that we all want to be as effective as possible in what we do. Right? Why wouldn’t we want to be our best self so we can best bring glory to God?
God deserves all of the Glory along the way. But tweaking and critiquing yourself daily is part of the growth process. You learn everyday, so intentionally evaluating everything you’ve learned and applying those lessons. Boom, GROWTH!
Where is your intersection? In my case, I’m learning, I don’t think the sweet spot is 50/50. And with time that “sweet spot” will become more clear.
What is your gift? Where does it intersect? What is your “sweet spot?”
