Note: I’m dealing with some arthritis/carpal tunnel issues, so this week’s posts will be a combination of short posts, guest posts and/or reblogs.
On Saturday, I attended the UMI (Urban Ministries International) Writers Conference. There were a ton of reasons (all physical) that I shouldn’t go, but I really felt like I was supposed to be there, so I pressed on and made it. UMI CEO, Jeff Wright, presented a devotion to start off the day. Before he was done, I knew I was right where God wanted me to be! I wanted to briefly share his thoughts with you.
God’s formula for discovering your purpose involves knowing these three things:
- You have a passion for it. It gives you joy.
- You’re good at it. Others have affirmed this. Not only are you good at it, you do it in excellence.
- It blesses other people. Use “the blessing test” in Matthew 25. Does what you do bring others closer to Christ?
Figuring out if these three things apply to you will help you figure out where you are in your path to discovering your purpose. Enjoy the ride!
