Gabe & Rebekah Lyons
Two Callings Under One Roof
“Your calling is where your talents and burdens collide.” –Rebekah Lyons
Talents: birthright gifts that God establishes in the womb. You can identify those birthright gifts by identifying what made you come alive when you were 8, 9, and 10
Burdens: The things that break your heart and make you weak
“So much of calling is surrendering to the trajectory of the life that God has you on, and sitting in the center of it and going ‘God, what is it that you want me to learn and discover about You?’” –Rebekah Lyons
“God wants to use what’s been broken in you and that He’s redeemed in you to help others find freedom and to find redemption.” –Gabe Lyons
Two Callings Under One Roof:
Have rules – Decide as a couple what is the most important thing that’s the tip of the arrow. If you say yes to everything, it will actually diminish the main thing that God has put on your life
Build rhythms into your life, where you daily work together to stay mentally healthy
Rest, restore, create, connect
“God is inviting us to stop to remind us of who we are, whose we are, what’s important, where we’re going to find ultimate meaning and purpose, and it’s going to be in our identity, pursuing what Christ has in mind for us.” –Gabe Lyons
