Max Lucado's writings speak to me. He writes for me, to me. I was captured and wanting more as I started reading:
"If I could leave one message on your heart, it would be this: You are unique in God's eyes. He designed you like no other...and your greatest joy will be found in using your uniqueness to glorify God every day of your life."
There's not really anything new in all of this. It's just that Mr. Lucado takes the scriptures and the messages further, actually telling the reader how to go about finding where you're supposed to be to do what you're supposed to be doing........to find your "sweet spot". There's no task or job that's too small. If you can identify it as a skill, a talent, or an ability that you do really well, and actually love doing it, there's a way to use it to Glorify God. It's just a matter of getting started. Whatever you may think to be too small or trivial may be just what is needed somewhere.
"We are all equipped with skills and talents that we can use to the Glory of God. We, each and every one, have the ability to do certain things well." (Rom 12:6)
"Let every detail in your life - words, action, whatever - be done in the name of the Master, Jesus." (Col 3:17 Msg)
I'm sure I have special abilities, that I'm special in the eyes of God, and that I'm part of His plan. The only thing left is to define my own role by finding my own sweet spot, "to do the most what I do the best."
"Accept God's permission to be who He made you to be."
"You cannot be anything you want to be but you can be everything God wants you to be."
From the book: "God inhabits the tiny seed, empowers the tiny deed. He cures the common life by giving no common life, by offering no common gifts. 'Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.' Don't discount the smallest of your deeds."
Welcome to Weezers Haven. Why 'Weezer'? It's what my grandbabies call me and that in itself is another story (ever see 'Steel Magnolias'?)
I am the mother of three daughters and the grandmother to four granddaughters. (Even the dog is a girl.) I am a retired pediatric nurse, a Christian of 'getting stronger' faith, and a reliable prayer warrior. I love to eat bacon cheeseburgers and drink too many diet cokes. Diet A&W is my biggest weakness.
I am not a person of great or many words. Here, you won't find long compositions. I am a visual person and often use my own photos to make a point or illustrate an idea.
I am devoted to my blogger friends. If you visit, please leave a greeting. I love to know who's stopped by.
When a daughter begins to ask about the past, she is beginning to spread her wings.
A woman needs to understand where she comes from so that she may better choose where she wants to go.

Parents rejoice in watching their daughter go about her life. Her confident stride tells of a woman comfortable with who she's become, and happy with where she's heading.
