When God shows you what HE wants you to do and HIS plan for your life, it’s exhausting.
And exciting, and fun, and scary. I think it’s probably the ultimate thrill.
People are searching for a high and for something to fill the voids in their lives.
This is it.
Here is the secret to make your life happy and whole. His name is Jesus. I’m not saying everything is happy all the time. In fact, the Bible says it won’t be. But the peace that covers is divine and supernatural even when life is tough.
Every morning before you get out of bed, ask God, “God, what do YOU want me to do today?”
He SO does this.
You will be happier and filled with passion because the VERY things HE wants for your life are aligned with YOUR talents that He’s given you.
What’s close to your heart? Working with special needs kids? Helping at nursing homes? Building houses? Caring for animals? What about food passions?
There are so many great passions we have that we let rest because we don’t simply ASK GOD to show us what He wants us to do.
It doesn’t really matter who else believes in you. HE does.
Just try it.
What do you have to lose?
You may very well be exhausted while doing it though because think about this: When a child finally asks his mom, “Hey, mom, what do YOU want me to do today instead of the stuff I want to do?”
OH, YES! Put him to work! Right?!
When we give up our “To Do” lists (and I get that our lists are important) of what WE want to do every day, God blesses it so big that we are finally getting to use the talents HE gave us in the ways HE already knows will be most fulfilling to us.
Right now, whatever time it is, even if it’s just in your own head, say, “God, please show me what YOU want me to do today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.” (And then do it again tomorrow. It’s truly amazing!)
Your life matters. Are you living out your passion? Or is something missing?
Time to get to work… and LOVE it.
