Life Themes

I caught this thought from Mark Batterson.

"One part of finding your voice is identifying your life themes. C.S. Lewis said, "Every life is comprised of a few themes." Over time you identify those unique God-given convictions that drive you. For example, there are ways of doing church that no one has thought of yet. That is one of my themes. A life theme isn't something you know. It's something you ooze out of your pores. It's not something you define. It's something that defines you. It's more than head-knowledge. It's a gut-conviction."

It got me to thinking about what I know about myself. What are my life themes? I'm sure that I have them, but when I ask that question I draw a blank, so I've started to think about it and ask God to help me recognize the life themes of my life.

What are yours?

That's really good Laura. I've noticed life themes as well, but I never really realized that's what they were. It's kind of interesting that many of us spend a lot of time wondering what our purpose in life is. But if we just take a look at our journey up to this point, we'll see our themes. Identifying these themes can help take the pressure off of finding our life purpose. Good perspective!
