I posted this back in 2008. I wanted to revisit it again.
Have you ever thought about what makes you special. I don't mean you being better than the other person, but why God created you in the first place.
Do you love to sew, cook, dance, sing or even draw? Maybe you need to think about your gift. That thing the Lord gave you to use to not only help others, but to glorify him.
Several years ago my mentor/friend/sister Jacquelin Thomas pushed me to see some things she said the Lord told her about me. At first, I wanted to deny it and did. Told her she was crazy and why would God tell her and not me. LOL Funny, huh
I really thought about the things she was saying to me. She is such a loving person and is always concerned about me and my well being.
I prayed about it and began to start to put my efforts into the things she suggested.
In the process I lost my job and couldn't find another one to save my life. I didn't know what to do and she kept saying use your gift. The outcome was Sean D. Young Romance Author/Web/Graphic Designer.
Update 9/2011: I have now found a great job working for a fabulous company. I work in the Digital group which is right up my alley. YAY!! GOD!!!
I am so comfortable now with my gifts and I use them to edify the body and glorify God.
What is your gift and are you using it?
