Writing a blog on this subject has crossed my mind SO many times. After this past Sunday, I couldn’t wait any longer…
I’m not a super emotional gal. I don’t tend to cry about things “typical” girls cry over. However, there is one area that I cry without control EVERY TIME! There is no explanation other than the fact that I’m viewing something beautiful. For example, when I’m watching a sporting event (especially the olympics) and someone is just in their moment. They’ve been working, practicing and preparing for countless hours for their five minute ice skating routine, or 10 second vault, or world record race. The sheer beauty of what they’re doing and what they must be feeling overwhelms me. I love seeing someone doing what they were born to do. A sense of pride comes over me even though I’ve never spoken to this person in my life. I know, weird right?
Typically a downhill skiier lives in a mountainous region of the world. Based on their environment they had opportunities starting at a young age to flourish at a particular sport. Have you ever wondered if you could have been the worlds best __________ if you lived in a community where that was the normal activity? When we lived in Michigan, hockey was a popular sport. I’ve never lived anywhere else that it was. It would be abnormal for a boy living in Georgia to pick up a love for hockey. Kind of like a Jamaican learning how to be on a bobsled team. Wait…there’s a movie about that.
This past weekend, I had one of these overwhelming moments. I couldn’t control my emotions as I looked around and saw the band members at my church worshiping. I love to worship, but I also love to watch others worship God. It is one of the most beautiful things in the world. These people were in their sweet spot. They’ve played guitar, drums, piano and used their voice for many years. But when you see someone using their talents for The Lord, it is unmistakable. Seeing someone find their “moment” is a wonderful thing to witness.
What’s your sweet spot? Have you found it yet? We all have one. Have you asked The Lord to help you find it? Look around and evaluate the environment you live in. Maybe you are ignoring what God wants you to do? Let him guide and direct you. You won’t regret it.
