What does my heart break for?

I'm trying to figure out where God is leading me. I think of the words from the song Hosanna:

Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me

Break my heart from what breaks yours
Everything I am for your kingdoms cause
As I go from earth in

I don't know what God wants me to do, but I know he wants me to get more involved. Its a struggle for me. Being pregnant and having a small child, makes it difficult to figure out my place. I don't feel completely whole unless I am serving in some way, but I can't figure out where God wants me. I want my heart to break for the same things God's hear breaks for. I want everything I do to be for the purpose of helping people find God. I want to love people. I just don't know where my talents and passions are. Thats one thing I've always struggled with in my life. I have never found my true passion, besides loving God. I have never found that ONE thing that I do better than the rest. My heart breaks for many things. Where to start though?

Hi Sam- I highly recommend "Holy Discontent" by Bill Hybels if you haven't read it. It's a great book and may begin to put you more in focus with what your heart breaks for and helping it to beat with God's.
-PS- I love the song Hosanna. It's a favorite of Aubrey and I while driving!

I don't mean to be typical or oppress mothers, but have you considered working in the nursery... I only say that, because you could have your kids and in my opinion the nursery is THE KEY ministry at any church. It makes everything else possible and makes or breaks the good impression new families have of the church. What could be closer to the heart of God than investing in Children and facilitating ministry?
