I’m an expert at nothing.


I’m a twenty-something.

Translation: I’m a dabbler. My interests are scattered. I’m unfocused.

Along my journey, I’ve discovered some things I’m particularly good at. First there was school. And then science and math and music and writing and home designing and organizing and baking. {Not to toot my own horn or anything, ha!}

And I’ve also discovered some things I really suck at. Like paying attention during sports. And doing nothing and swimming and cooking breakfast so it’s all ready at the same time. And telling jokes and learning new card games and keeping my cool.

But, no matter how amazing or terrible I am at whatever I do, this I know: I’ll never be the best or the worst. I’ll just fall somewhere in the middle.

In other words, I’m an expert in nothing.

I hope this is clear by now: I’m a Christian, through and through.

But I certainly don’t claim to be an expert follower of Christ.

There’s only one expert status I’ll claim. I’m an expert at being me, at having questions and seeking answers, at being human.

Stop trying to be the best darn ________ this world has ever seen. Trust me, this world has seen better. Just be you, seeking Him, seeking to better yourself, only through His grace.

Never, ever, ever stop asking Him who He wants you to be.

And in the meantime, dabble your little heart out.


That which is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy ~ think about such things {Philippians 4:8}.

Park your brain in this sweet spot and, even if you’re a twenty-something who’s totally lacking focus, you’ll be focused on what truly matters.
