I love this snippet of wisdom from Phil Cooke yesterday, What drives you nuts? How to find your purpose. Some people seem to spend their lives pursuing a calling with real passion; others struggle to get going or even to recognise what it is that might spur them into action. Phil’s solution? Ask yourself, “What drives me nuts?”
“Let me offer a suggestion. I’ve discovered that in many cases, the thing you hate the most, is probably the problem God has called you to fix. In other words, what do you hate? What drives you nuts? I believe the key to your destiny could be found in the answer to that question.”
It seems entirely reasonable that the good desires in our hearts are placed there by God and that his frustration with a broken world flows over into our hearts.
For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
A little frustration may be what it takes to get us going.
