You ever hear of being in your “sweet spot?” It’s usually associated with what you’re doing, your career, your ministry, and overall, how you’re using your talents. Are you in the place you’re supposed to be?
You can tell if you’re in your sweet spot by if:
During these types of ministry events, we are also always able to discuss our marriage and how keeping God in the center of it makes you stronger. How making the right choices, even within our mistakes, has led us to where we are... in the sweet spot. It’s also a blessing because we can share our book with an audience that may have never heard of it. We are truly amazed by these short moments into the lives of strangers that God grants us!
Listening to Klove this morning, they were talking about how God always makes an appearance when you’re going through a storm. This really touched my heart this because I began thinking back to how God appeared throughout our relationship when we were struggling. How he placed people, even strangers in our lives to help us along through the years.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
I’ll never forget a really bad time in our lives and I had to cancel our gym membership. When I called to cancel, the gentleman on the phone asked what was going on in our lives that is causing us to do this. When I explained all that happened that week, trying to hold back the tears, he said it would be no problem and that he was going to pray for me and my family. How often do you call the gym and have someone say they want to pray with you? I believe he was an angel God placed in my path and I’ll never forget it.
God always shows up on time and always allows us the grace to continue to find our sweet spots in ministry. He's with us in the storms so that we can become stronger people to help others. Imagine if we took it for granted how God led us through our storms? Would we be able to recognize the significance of our SWEET SPOT?
This last Sunday morning was definitely an example of being the sweet spot of ministry. It’s what Dan and I have been called to do at this time. We are excited to see how he is starting to use us and how it feels so right.
“God is good, a hiding place in tough times. He recognizes and welcomes anyone looking for help, No matter how desperate the trouble.” Nahum 1:7
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
