There is a questionnaire that I have posted on the old Sarah’s Tent website that people still find from time to time. The answers that many people write tell me immediately what kind of person they are, what means the most to them and what they are good yet. Yet amazingly … many will end their questionnaire with a simple statement, “I STILL don’t know who I am!”
As I “Illustrate You” by encouraging and teaching the magnificent gifts that God has placed inside of you, I look for resources that will be practical and insightful tools to help you rediscover your passion and purpose and to help you in rediscovering YOU.
Hey! Here’s a good one …
After inquiring about a ministry project that a fellow minister was working on, I received a stream of excuses about why they had not progressed since the last time I’d asked.
First it was that the devil was beating them up. (Amazingly, this had been occuring every three months, for three months at a time, for the past ten years) I finally just stopped asking about the battle.
This time it was a new approach. After having asked a few key questions about why the devil was so busy beating them up, I heard a different line of reasoning that pertained to their cautious approach and indecisiveness in how to proceed next.
