Feeling cranky, tired, discouraged or edgy? Sure, it could be hunger or hormones, but the problem could go deeper. 

Recently, I was suffering from "technology overload" - and a prolonged schedule packed with new learning curves. We've been married so long, my husband reognized the symptoms immediately. It was time to talk. 

"What makes your heart sing?" he asked gently but firmly. "I think that's the real problem." 

I knew immediately what he meant. Maybe you do, too. 

We're All Unique 

When I first started writing this article, I almost changed my mind. Too common a question… nothing new I can add.  But then I realized that's really one of the very reasons for writing it - we can all offer our own special perspectives. 

We all have unique interests and activities. We list them in our profiles; we post them on our Facebook walls; and we talk about them with animated expressions. They occupy the white spaces of our calendars. Even our checkbooks can reflect them. We may enjoy a variety of things. But within each heart lies one or more passions that drives our words, thoughts, and actions more than any other.  

Do What Makes Your Heart Sing 

I first heard that phrase, "Do what makes your heart sing," years ago in a magazine story about Lady Byrd Johnson. The wife of former president Lyndon B. Johnson, she was known for her beautification efforts - particularly in the planting of flowers throughout the nation's countryside - though that was only a small part of her contributions. State highway tractors stopped mowing, and wildflowers began to spread. Allergy sufferers may not appreciate her passion, but no one can deny the colorful, floral display of God's beauty as you travel along the highways of America. The reason she persisted in that endeavor? "It was something my heart could sing to," she once said. 

I adopted that slogan years ago when I discovered one of the things that made my own heart sing: writing, particularly in creating beauty through the power of encouraging words, and pointing others toward intimacy with God (though I love flowers, too!). At first my efforts were only for God's ears and mine, but as I began to scatter seeds, they spread-like wildflowers - as I shared colorful words with others. When I moved too far away from that passion, I experienced a persistent restlessness. 

What About You? 

What makes your heart sing? I know a couple whose simple song and goal is to help someone every day - in a practical way. Their "music" travels great distances. Some love to build fine homes; others live to better those in hovels. A massage therapist I just met shared her passion of helping relieve others' pain, even though as a sufferer of fibromyalgia, she is exhausted the day after giving a massage. All of these people offer their God-given gifts to others and make a difference in their own way. 

Whether it's touting the advantages of an iPod or iPad, training business employees, or teaching children life skills, you love what you do. And I'm not talking here just about making money with your passion. Not everyone can do that. But you can use your passion to make a difference in your world. I love what Katharine Graham once said: "To love what you do and feel that it matters, how could anything be more fun?" 

But not everything in life is… fun, even if you do know what makes your heart sing. You may be suffering from something far more serious than "technology overload." Sometimes economic downturns, painful losses, or debilitating circumstances can threaten to silence the music of your heart. But it doesn't have to. The apostle Paul's enemies tried to eradicate the passionate "music" of Paul's life: "To me to live is Christ, and to die is gain." (Philippians 1:21). They chained him and threw him in a smelly dungeon. But guess what? Paul's song grew louder. And as he sang praises, literally, to His God, the chains fell off; God both spared and changed the jailer's life; and Paul's passion - and song - grew even stronger (Acts 16:22-34). 

How Do You Find the Song? 

How do you tune in to the music that makes your heart sing? And how do you find it in the first place? Here are a few suggestions: 

•Pull away and get alone with God. Ask Him to define your passion and your purpose, and to write His signature on it. Then listen, really listen. Someone has wisely said we can't hear God speak if we're always doing the talking. 
•Watch where God is working and has worked in your life. God often uses your weaknesses as well as your strengths to birth a special ministry or passion He wants you to pursue. 
•Remember we all go through seasons in our lives. God will use each season if you allow Him to, and make something beautiful of each one. When He closes a door, He may not plan to open a window. He may be protecting you from something that would ultimately bring only harm and disappointment to your life. 
•You can discover your purpose and passion even in mundane situations. Be open to new things, but recognize that sometimes it truly is the little things that count in our lives. 
•Stop listening to everyone else's voices. While we are to live and work with excellence, no one can "do it all." How - and why - you use your God-given gifts or passions will differ from others. And what works for some won't work for you. 
In our effort to follow other sheep, we can temporarily "misplace" our song and lose our direction. Following sheep can lead to confusion. Following the Shepherd leads to peace and contentment. What makes even a sheep's heart sing? The Shepherd's melodious voice. Are you listening for it? 

Can You Still Hear the Music? 

Are you a mom? A dad? A single? A senior? What makes your heart sing? Can you still hear the music? If you'd like to read further on defining your purpose and your passion-and doing what makes your heart sing-you might enjoy this piece I wrote a few years ago called "The Passion of Purpose." Sometimes we find our passion - and our purpose - in the simplest and most unlikely places. What about you? What do you think? 

"My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they folow me" (John 10:27, NIV).

Throughout the years we have had the opportunity to have not only great messages from Ministers, but also timeless devotions that touch our heart, sharing those are part of the new Golden Nuggets imitative our new division of Better Tomorrows is to bring together these contributions of God Grace filled word to you through a localized outlet if you feel led, please provide any donations to those ministries if you need links let us know but I will be listing this new coming year a ministries sites page. Also if you have devotion you like you can submit them. My only rule for anything listed here at Better Tomorrows is that it come from a Bible believing Church that believes in the one and only Son of God Jesus Christ and is directly Biblical, these have been my only concern in using any other person’s work. For years the only papers you read here were written here at Better Tomorrows’ Also a little note: we are in the process of supporting a national prisoners Ministry program a donation to Better Tomorrows of just six American dollars will provide for many people. Every donator will also be submitted in a Annual Christmas program in which there will be a cash give away right before Christmas this will all start at the beginning of the year 2012. Could be real fun and you would be helping get printed Bible teaching materials to those incarcerated, a pastor friend of mine works very hard to lead people to Christ and encourage them to redirect their lives. Please use only this email for this purpose @





It's in you

The Power to be all that God intended you to be is right inside you, right where you are, right where you are at - in life. No matter how much the enemy has tried to convince you otherwise You are a Child of The King, heirs to HIS thrown, Salt & Light to the world, all you need is ask HIM daily to show up and show out in your life, He will do just that, make that choice Today, will YOU!  --Falcon Better Tomorrows

If I can touch the hem of HIS garment


My goal today, Today I will be the example of Jesus to the world. You might ask how I am going to do that, great question thank for asking. That is the simple part I have faith in HIM to be with me, little secret, I will tell only you, I can’t do anything without HIM.

I Love The Lord so much HE does that often puts me in touch with parts of the HIS work. The answer to the question Grace,--- His Grace. ---- His Grace. --His Grace....Never ending Grace my friend. I can't stop telling people His Love is unimaginable to anything / every thing here. He Loves You So Much HE will accept You just the way you are.....

Psalm 23

The LORD Is My Shepherd A Psalm of David.

The LORD is my shepherd;

I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green Pastures.

He leads me beside still waters.

He restores my soul.

He leads me in paths of righteousness

for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of The shadow of death,

I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me

in the presence of my enemies;

you anoint my head with oil;

my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever....
