I had a meeting yesterday afternoon with a great couple from our NL Lakeview location. God has them in a season of job transitions right now so we sat down to talk about possibilities and ideas as they plot their next step ('a man plans his steps but the Lord directs his way').
As we talked we began to see fields of opportunity to do "work as mission"--to marry together a career with making a difference in people's lives--in a creative and non-traditional way. By the end of the conversation I was so excited about the possibilities that I was ready to drop everything and join them in pursuit of this venture.
I've come to realize that some of the happiest moments of my life are when God uses me to help people see the possibilities they have to make a difference for Jesus--to get their lives on mission for God. They are "Gehazi Moments". I love to be there at the inception of an idea and then help it go from idea to reality. And the crazier and more impossible the idea, the more excited I get. I love to help people figure out their "power spot" (love that phrase from Sonny Arguinzoni--and I love how he says it. A friend and I heard Sonny speak 10 years ago in California about the "power spot" and its still fresh with me today.)
I know other people who find their happiest moments when they make order out of chaos. Its their power spot. (My wife is an "order from chaos" person.) Personally, I like to see chaos emerge from order and then to take that chaos and help focus it into a laser beam of missional power.
What is your power spot? What % of your time do you spend working in/toward your power spot?
