What do you want to do?

We are the most privileged generation in history. So much is optional. We don’t have to work to survive. Instead, we have the opportunity to work to do the stuff that makes us come alive inside.
 
What an opportunity! And all we have to do is to get clarity about it and then commit to it. For most of us, God has already been speaking to our hearts about it. We may have prayed all we need to pray to understand his call.
 
I suggest an exercise periodically where you ask yourself two questions:
  • What do I do at present?
  • What do I want to do?
Mark Oestreicher and I sat out on our porch till late last night and talked at length about the issue. We’ve got maybe another 20 years of intensive productivity. What do we feel compelled to do? Here’s what I journaled about it:
 
What do I do at present?
I give young people the opportunity to discover who God intended them to be. They get the opportunity to have a personal spiritual Copernican revolution, breaking free from a narcissistic universe to live in freedom. They get the opportunity to learn how to become givers and kingdom builders.
 
What do I want to do?
I want to gather and train groups of spiritually free people to go to places where people are in spiritual chains and set the captives free. I’ll do this by partnering with nationals to address felt needs and plant churches.
 
What about you? What are you doing now? And what do you want to do? Take out a pen and journal it out.
