Read Your Life Backward - January 10, 2024

Are you living in your sweet spot? Doing what you do well, what you’ve always loved to do? That last question trips up a lot of folks. God wouldn’t let me do what I like to do, would he? Yes, he would. “God is working in you to help you want to do and be able to do what pleases him” (Philippians 2:13 NCV). “Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:4 NIV).

Your Father is too gracious to assign you to a life of misery. So see your desires as gifts to heed rather than longings to suppress. What have you always done well and loved to do? Read your life backward. Re-relish your moments of success and satisfaction. In the merger of the two, you will find your uniqueness!
