What is the Thing You Can't Help But Do?

What is the thing you can't help but do?

Think about it.
Whatever situation you are in, what is the thing you can't help but do?

Are you always the person who brings people together?
Are you the one who always makes people feel seen and heard?
Are you always drawn to taking care of people?
Are you the one who makes things happen?
Are you the one who has to take time to process?
Maybe you go all in on the spreadsheets?
These are just a few examples of things you can't help but do.

I was talking to someone the other day and she told me that over the last couple of years she is always trying a new vocation in areas that interest her...natural health, self-care, mental health, starting a class online, herbal medicine, and on and on and on.

But then she said, "Every time I try to go all in on one of those, I get blocked by someone that needs me to take care of them."

I asked her, "Do you feel restless in that role of caregiver or is it something that you love to do?"
She said, "I LOVE doing that stuff!"

She can't help it!
It is natural for her.

Often, we spend so much time trying to figure out what we are supposed to be doing with our lives that we miss what is staring us right in the face.

The thing you can't help but do is part of the gift God has given you.
It is part of what He wants to make flourish in you.

You don't see it as a gift because it comes naturally to you, but you must know that it doesn't come naturally to others.

Take a moment today and ask yourself:
