Focusing on the negative isn't necessarily something I like to do.
I'd much rather see the good.
However, there are times when it is actually beneficial to consider the negative.
After all, what I am not helps me define who I am.
Areas I am not talented or gifted in are not areas I should seek opportunities of importance.
Roles that I do not fill are responsibilities I do not need to shoulder.
Anytime I try to step outside the boundaries of my roles, talents, and gifts, I must seriously consider if this is my doing or the Lord's.
Am I walking in faith outside my comfort zone, or am I somewhere I have no business being?
Only with prayer, wise counsel, and careful consideration will I know.
