What Is Your Gift?

Have A Wonderful and Blessed Day!!! Use Your Gift To Glorify God!!!

To Take All Your Talents, Gifts, All That The Lord Has Given To You, Then Take Your Time, And Help Others, Glorify The Lord With These Things; The Lord has given us talents, gifts, abilities not to keep wrapped up for special occasions. Oftentimes when we can use these gifts it will bless us. I am blessed with helping with children, and have worked in Special Education; when someone asks me a question about these things I feel blessed and important, and even needed.
Whoever you are, wherever you’ve come from, your reason for existence on planet earth is the same. You have been created for the glory of God to take all that you are and all that you have and use it to magnify our Precious Lord.

There’s nothing worse than finding something laying around the house that’s broken or no longer serves the purpose for which it was created. A light bulb that no longer lights up; a shovel with a broken handle; or a banana that’s gone all brown and mushy. Yet that’s what we’re like when we fail to glorify our Precious Lord. We’re not doing what we were made to do; we’re not being who we were created to be. And that in fact puts us in a worse position than a light bulb that no longer lights up, a shovel without a handle, and a brown, mushy banana.

Every Christian has received a gift, a talent, from God. Everyone who’s been truly born-again, or inwardly renewed by the Holy Spirit, has received a gift from God, a spiritual gift. We all must unwrap the gift God’s given you, then start to use this gift, its not to be put in the closet for a rainy day, or just used for certain people. There are evidently no exceptions. If you’re a Christian, God’s given you a gift.

Don’t be afraid or discouraged if you lack the strength to serve. The best thing to do is to acknowledge that fact. Then, pray that God would give you a fresh start, and trust that he has heard your prayer and will respond. When you’ve done that, act in faith that the grace of God’s Spirit will meet you in the moment of service and supply you with supernatural strength. And, as you see him answer, be sure to thank him for his empowering grace that’s enabled you to serve.
God’s gifts don’t stop being gifts once they’ve been received. We’re to use our gifts to serve others with joy, and gladness, in the strength that God himself supplies. God is the one who empowers you to use the gift he’s given you. And in this way, God gets the glory as the Giver not only of the gift, but of the grace to use it.

⦁ Unwrap your gift!!!
⦁ Don’t waste it use it well.
⦁ Just because it’s got your name on it, that doesn’t mean it’s just for you.
⦁ Serve in the strength that God supplies.

1Peter 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
1Peter 4:13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
1Peter 4:14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

A CHARGE TO KEEP
A charge to keep I have,
A God to glorify,
A never-dying soul to save,
And fit it for the sky.
To serve the present age,
My calling to fulfill:
O may it all my powers engage
To do my Master’s will!
Arm me with jealous care,
As in Thy sight to live;
And O Thy servant, Lord, prepare
A strict account to give!
Help me to watch and pray,
And on Thyself rely,
Assured, if I my trust betray,
I shall for ever die.

ONLY ONE LIFE
It matters so little
How much you may own
The places you’ve been
Or people that you k
For it all comes to nothing
When placed at His feet
It’s nothing to Jesus
Just memories to me
You can take all the treasures
From far away lands
And take all the riches
you can hold in your hands
And take all the pleasures
Your riches can buy
But will it help
When it’s your time to die
Only one life
So soon it will pass
Only what’s done for Christ will last
Only one chance to do His will
So give to Jesus all you days
It’s the only life that pays
When you recall
You have but one life
The days pass so swiftly
The months come and go
The years melt away
Like new falling s
Spring turns to summer
Then summer to fall
Autumn brings winter
Then death come to all
Only one life
So soon it will pass
Only what’s done for Christ will last
Only one chance to do His will
So give to Jesus all you days
It’s the only life that pays
When you recall
You have but one life

Love and Prayers
