Have you ever heard of the term “Spiritual DNA?” I was surprised and excited to read that phrase for the first time and then follow specific steps to discover my life mission using my spiritual DNA.
My entire Christian life I searched for God’s calling for my life. I often asked him, “What is my life mission?” Through researching the subject, I learned about two types of DNA – My physical DNA, and my spiritual DNA and through those, I would uniquely serve Him. You have two kinds of DNA as well. It is through your spiritual DNA that you can discover your life mission.
I cannot say God will be specific about exactly what he is calling you to do, but through this process, you can pinpoint your strengths, personality type, spiritual gifts, your passions, and your testimony just like I did. Once I had the information, God only then verified what he had already shown me years before. Verification of God’s DNA in my life excited me.
To discover my life mission or God’s call on my life, I put effort into each step with honesty, sincerity, time, and money. Just like finding your natural DNA, tests must be taken to determine your spiritual DNA which requires some time and money. But, are you serious about discovering your life mission by using your spiritual DNA? If so, you must put time and money into each step honestly and sincerely.
How much money, you ask? Good question. Not much. Some of the websites you will visit and tests you will take require a few dollars to get the complete answers you need to work toward the outcome: knowing how God built you for His Kingdom work here on earth. It’s a fantastic discovery of God’s hand in your life – deep into the tissues of your spiritual DNA
Part One: Strengths
Starting with your strengths is such an encouragement. It’s almost like having someone stand in front of you telling you all the good things they see, only it goes much deeper than that. Discovering your strengths using the Gallup Strengths Finder Test (Korean Version here)helps you recognize how your personality shines through your strengths. Once you hit the “Buy Now” button, you’ll have the opportunity to choose which outcome you want to receive. Honestly, the cheapest one will give you fantastic results. But, you can go all-out and get the full report if you wish.
My strengths include communication, connectedness, woo, input, and strategic. What this combination means for me is that I love to communicate, especially using stories (hence my story-filled blogs). Secondly, that I win-others-over (woo) easily by using valuable input. Finally, that I use strategy in groups to get work accomplished well. What great strengths, right? Well, for me, I can see each of these strengths in important aspects of my life. Instantly I became encouraged about how God uniquely created me.
Start with strengths – you’ll begin the discovery of your spiritual DNA off on the right foot.
