Our Gifts

"When we try to do and act like other people, we are acting in an unauthorized capacity. When we try to be someone we're not , when we try to emulate gifts, skills, and characteristics that are not ours, we abuse the authority we have been given as individuals whom God has blessed with a unique purpose".
Thelma Wells

We are not designed to be someone else......God gave us all unique spiritual gifts. He gave us those gifts with the purpose to serve others, and to encourage or families and friends. Dont neglect your special gifts, dont let them get all dusty just sitting on the shelves of your heart. Be an encouragement to someone during this season of Thanksgiving..... Give a gift of Love , friendship, compassion, or hospitality.
"As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God."
1 Peter 4:10

  2. I always like those kind of things. But It makes me kindda sad because I always keep thinking that I don't have a gift. I sometimes feel that God left me out, or at least I can't figure out what I'm blessed with. I wish I knew! I guess I just need more time...
