Sermons in the Series
We’ve all heard the phrases “follow your heart” and “find your purpose.” What if you paid closer attention to how God wired you, instead? What makes your heart catch in your throat, and what brings you to tears? What are your God-given gifts, and what makes your pulse race with joy? Your purpose in life is found where these two things line up: at the crossroads of what breaks your heart and what makes your heart beat.
Crossroads: Sean Tuohy's story of finding purpose in football
For Sean Tuohy, growing up in a family rooted in faith and purposefulness (the very family that inspired the story of The Blind Side, as a matter of fact) was nothing out of the ordinary.
“Truthfully, we just had a family that instilled the principles of purpose more than I realized,” he said. “We had a daily constant feeding of good values. At the time, I didn’t appreciate it.”
When Tuohy came to SMU as a student athlete and began attending Cornerstone worship services in 2016, he found himself moved by the theme of one sermon in particular: Your purpose is found at the crossroads of what breaks your heart and what makes your heart beat.
