Use Your Gifts

All of us have something that comes naturally for us to do.  Things we do well that can help others and serve a useful purpose.  Our gifts or strengths that God has blessed us with could help support the basics in life…food, shelter or clothing.  They also could be gifts that help spread the Good News of the Lord.  Whatever they are and whatever they help you to do…get to know them, understand how to use them best and if you are not sure about this…start by asking God in prayer to help you to see the goodness He has planted in you and where and when to use it.  All that is good comes from God and He created you, don’t take your cues about your worth from the world.  Learn from the Creator about your goodness and use your gifts from Him to help others.  May God’s love and joy surround you each day.

    Hi Marty,

    Not sure if you remember me, we started at G&K on the same day, this is Rachel Grams.

    I hope you are doing well. I had the urge to drop you a note and let you know how much I enjoy your daily devotionals. You really have a gift in writing these and your pictures are beautiful.

    Thank you for taking the time each day to write these devotionals.

    Take care, Rachel
