Sometimes is so easy to compare ourselves to others, especially when it comes to our gifts & talents, we all tend to think that we are not good enough or even worse when we think we are better than everyone else and the pride starts to grow in our hearts as a prize gained through our 'unique skills'. But remember: EVERYONE is good at something! you might be fabulous at something you do but you are not the only one in the world, if you look around you you will see that EVERYONE has their speciality and there's something that only they can do so perfectly and uniquely. EVERYONE matters & EVERYONE has a talent and a gift. But unfortunately not everyone knows what they are really good at. So, Hey - You! Start discovering what is really in your heart and make it happen. God surely placed gifts and talents within you but you gotta discover by yourself.
These words were so well said by Christine Caine - "The gift within you will destroy you if the character within you cannot sustain you". Cause our gifts and talents are given by God and it's our responsibility to take care of them not only growing and improving in our abilities/skills but also being mindful that we need to develop our character in order to maintain ourselves stabled in the calling and purpose He has for our lives.
"Your gift is about others, your call is about him" - Chris Mendez
Don't forget that! It's ALL ABOUT HIM - not you!
Because we live for the glory of God, for His name sake
"... whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." - 1 Cor. 10:31 (NIV)
So be mindful about the gift He has placed in your life and work to get better at it but please, don't ever think it's about you because the day you start thinking that it will destroy you.
Be totally open to God's beautiful work takes place in your life and allow Him to use the talents and gifts He has put within you and you will see great things come out of your life.
Be closer to the Creator, spend more time with Him in order to be more creative and be able to pour out your creativity into people's lives and see them be blessed by the gifts He gave to you!
It's all about God and blessing others!!!
