When we think of getting out of bed in the morning and going about our business, do we ask the question why am I doing this? What are the reasons your feet hit the floor—the alarm clock? bills? the kids? I would encourage you to take a look at yourself in the mirror and ask the question why? Why am I here? What does God have planned for me today? I found that often I had plans that I wanted to fulfill, deadlines I wanted to meet, and people to meet. While these are all important in their own right, I would overlook what God had for me that day. I want to encourage you to take a journey of discovery and ask God to show you what your why is and how he would like to align your why and your spiritual gifts.
You may be asking the question, how do I find my Why? Where does your passion, potential, and ability overlap? What are you passionate about? What is the potential you are unaware of? What are your top three abilities? What kind of impact do you want to make? These are questions that for the most part are not answered quickly and will take some personal reflection time along with prayer. I would also encourage you to write down some of your ideas and with the visual aid of seeing the words and sentences there are times when next steps and deeper understanding can be revealed. I wanted to share my Why with you; this has taken time to develop and I am excited to know that this is my Why: To encourage and equip servant leaders across the world. I am excited to share this with you and excited to hear about your personal journey.
When spiritual gifts and your Why align, the how and the what you do in your life are subjective. In other words you can live out your why in Arizona or Ohio or any other place on the planet that he has led you. Your how and what are going to bring you great joy because you are practicing your Why through them. These are the hands and feet of your Why. I am excited for you to begin this journey and have a better understanding of God’s plan for your life and the freedom that comes with this understanding.
