Sweet Spot

I’ve had a couple chances in the last few weeks to sit with not-yet-Christians who are thinking about following Jesus. One of the people is in an incredibly difficult situation making it an unbelievably delicate conversation.


It’s interesting. I honestly think it was a situation that 99.9% of Christians would find completely uncomfortable, and I don’t know if I’ve ever felt so comfortable.

I don’t say that to brag – it is all God. The reason I say it is because it is SO cool when you’re in your sweet spot. It’s when you get to experience the spiritual of your “spiritual gift” because it’s like God is working through you and it’s not even you anymore. To use a too worn metaphor, it’s like throwing a fish that was flopping around on land into water.

Have you experienced that? Do you know your sweet spot? If not, I pray it’s coming, because you don’t want to miss that feeling.
