You can be everything God wants you to be

Max Lucado writes a book showing how we can be everything God wants us to be. Everything comes from God - everything we do exhibits God. We should live so that He gets the credit. Honor God in everything you do!
Society tells us that we can be anything we want to be if we work hard enough but we can only truly be everything God wants us to be. Study yourself to find out what skills God gave you, those are like clues as to what you should be.
Romans 12: 3-8 Everyone has different skills and contributes to the whole - no one has the exact skills and capacity to do what you are best at.
Lucado uses an acronym to describe how to find out who you are/where you belong.
S strengths T topics O optimal conditions R relationships Y yes!
What are your strengths? What is your topic - your verbs, nouns, objects you enjoy working with. What are your optimal conditions - what motivates you? What sort of relationships do you have? When you can answer those questions, you get to the feeling of Yes! I know who I am and what God wants me to do!
I got this book thru the Thomas Nelson Book-Sneeze Program.
