Finding your place


A few days ago my 6-year-old daughter said something that I thought was quite profound. I was chatting to her about her day at school and the conversation went a little like this:

“Mummy, during worship assembly at school, while we were singing, I found my place”.

Me: “Really? What do you mean?”

“Well, you know how I say I love God all the time? Well I never felt anything when I said it before, but all of a sudden while I was singing, my heart filled up so much and I realised I loved God so much, and then I knew I had found my place – I know what I was born for – you know, what I am meant to do with my life”.

Thinking she was going to tell me she was going to grow up and be a ballerina, or a singer like her mumma is the response I expected when I responded with: “That’s awesome honey – so what are you meant to do with your life?”.

Her answer back to me was, “I am meant to worship Him”.

So simple, so true. We get so caught up in our jobs, our careers – thinking that’s what we are meant to do to be fruitful. But at the end of the day, we will find our place when we realise we were born to worship Him”. Everything else comes after this.

Take a moment with me today to realign your vision and dream for your life. Let us make our first priority to worship him. I believe everything else will fall into place and we will live in a place of rest when we make it that simple. We make our purpose so complex, so complicated, but it really is all about loving God and seeing that overflow into all we do.

This is where we will find ‘our place’.
