Do What Makes Your Heart Sing!

morning dove very last
There are unique things about us that God designed in us! When we stay true to how God made us, we fulfill our destiny, and God delights in it! We have a unique part to play in bringing heaven to earth!

The following poem on this topic was inspired by an encounter I had with a stranger. A kind man walked up to me out of nowhere, while I was employed washing windows of some vacant apartments during my college years. He began to talk to me about individual callings in life, and that everyone should do what “makes their heart sing.” I had never seen him before or since. I believe he was one of the possible angels I have met in my journey so far. I am still discovering ways to follow his advice!

DO WHAT MAKES YOUR HEART SING  (formerly entitled “You Are God’s Artwork”)

Do what you
Were made to do
And your joy will abound.

The Potter made
One design
For you alone.

The shape and color
Of your spirit
Are both one of a kind.

He transforms
The pain of your story
Into beauty.

He delights
In your uniqueness—
His artwork.

Do what makes your heart sing,
And your soul dance,
And your face smile…

…He celebrates
Your beauty —
His work in you.

I will give thanks and praise to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. Psalm 139:14 (AMP)

I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return]. Phil 1:6 (AMP)
