Have you ever heard someone say, “Do what you love and love what you do”? If you are miserable with what you do, how productive are you. We were each given specific talents and gifts for a reason. Max Lucado’s book Cure for the Common Life it is called the “sweet spot”. The sweet spot is defined as the point or area on a bat, club, or racket at which it makes most effective contact with the ball. Here is a quote from Dr. Phil McGraw discussing this topic in his book.
“God gave you uniqueness, a talent, a skill, one that is yours alone to use in honoring Him. The “sweet spot” that puts it all into perspective, and show you how to live it everyday so that you aren’t just existing in God’s creation but thriving in His plan.” Are we thriving or surviving?
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You.
