The Sweet Spot

We all desire to be in that “Sweet Spot” of life. But few are willing to chase what that looks like. Contrary to popular belief, the sweet spot is not a place of Bentley’s & Beaches, Lindsey Lohan is a good example of that. If we believe that chasing the almighty dollar is the answer to living in the sweet spot, we are terribly mistaken. The sweet spot is so much bigger than what is in your bank account. It’s so much bigger than global recognition. It’s even bigger than anything we can achieve by ourselves.

I believe that we all have God given giftings. What we do with those giftings are up to us. We can either use them for the furthing of His kingdom, or we can try to make a buck. I also believe that every once in a while an opportunity will jump up and bite us in the butt. Too often we dismiss that divine appointment, and keep on about our mundane existence. I also know that if we really do desire to live life in the sweet spot that God has designed for us it’s going to cost us everything, even our own lives.

“If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but are yourself lost or destroyed?” Luke 23-25

It’s about trading in your story to be apart of an eternal story. It’s about realizing that God’s plan for humanity might just play out though my hands, but first we’ve got to be completely surrendered.

Complete Surrender + God Given Giftings + Divine Opportunity = Sweet Spot of Life

Will it be easy? NO, absolutely not. But I promise you, when you come to the end of this life, you won’t regret living life to the fullest. You won’t look back and bemoan the missed chances. You’ll just wish you found the sweet spot sooner. But be warned, the sweet spot is a dangerous place to live. Are you up for it? I say BRING IT ON!
