What’s that thing you always do?

Hey you,

the one who loves painting or singing, writing or adding, teaching or reaching.

I want you to pause for a moment and think of that thing.

That thing you always do.

You do it in the everyday, here-and-now world.

But I bet you do the same in the spiritual world too.

“You feed people,” my wise friend says to me one day.

I look at the cupcakes I’ve made. “Yep, I do,” I respond with a smile.

“I mean you feed people. Their hearts. With cupcakes. With words. With encouragement.”



I can think of women who are nurses and bring healing in many other ways too. Women who literally garden but also grow ideas and people. Women who lean into the role of teacher whether in a classroom or while having coffee.

It may seem like you do a lot of different things.

But I’m guessing you do a few things in many different ways.

Those are the core parts of who you are. You nurture, create, serve, whatever it may be.

You do it on the outside.

And on the inside too.

You just can’t help yourself.

You always go back to that role in some way {and that’s the way it’s supposed to be}.

What is that for you?

It may take some time or even input from others to figure it out. But it’s there.

That thing you always do is significant. It’s not by chance. It’s worth your attention and time.

Because it’s part of the design God built into you.

When you do that thing you’re made to do…you bring Him joy.

And bring the same to all of us too.


So what’s that thing you always find to do? What role do you tend to play wherever you are?

{If you’d like a partner to help you figure it out, e-coaching might interest you.}

P.S. I want to give away this beautiful wooden painting to one of you, which is a reminder for all of us to trust the Lord with all our heart. Leave a comment by Tuesday at midnight and I will announce the winner on Wednesday. Thank you all for sharing your hearts with me, it brings me such joy.
