Trusting and following God’s leading allows us to live in the sweet spot; but doing so also requires us to realign our lives and renew our minds. We must let go of anything that throws us off balance—people, habits, activities, and thought patterns. We must be mindful and live purposefully.

Consider the following: What past experiences, good or bad, have given you a vantage point that others don’t have? What do you enjoy doing? What do you do well? Where are you living or working in this season of life? God wants to use all these things!

When you combine your love for God and His people with your passions, past, and talents, you will find your sweet spot—that place of power, peace, excitement, and adventure. And when you’re in the sweet spot, nothing can knock you off balance.
