ready to score?

"God doesn't want us to be shy with His gifts, but bold and loving and sensible." 2 Timothy 1:7 MSG

Max Lucado, he speaks my language -- simple, logical sense. In one of his books he shares the formula in finding your perfect career.  In short, tapping into your talents, skills and gifts from God when coupled with your passion in life, lands you in your sweet spot.  Sadly, many have taken a seat on a stinking sour pickle instead.  Miserable in a job they detest, not only is the company they're working for being cheated, but so is the person and God.  There is little joy, growth or glory. All would gain from a change.

But oh, the joys of filling that magical formula, resulting with a career in the sweet spot. Cam Newton appears to be living in such a spot.  He's a talented quarterback, having a blast! I will admit his antics on the field at one time annoyed me -- skipping, laughing, joking.  I thought he's not serious enough, you know, having too much fun... just loving his job too much.  Loving his job too much? Is that possible? And how can anyone not love the smile on the little faces receiving a football from him?
Lucado says, "Success is not defined by position or pay scale but by this: doing the most what you do the best." 

Are you doing the most of what you do the best?  Then, do a happy dance; you've scored! Celebrate, and let His glory shine!

"He who refreshes others will himself be refreshed." Proverbs 11:25

friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
