Gifts & Greater Things

Thankful Thursday ponders the the miracle of each person focusing on and doing their job in a task and then collectively the group “pulls off a miracle”. Talents and gifts lie within each of us. When we apply our focus and efforts with these talents towards a project bigger than a personal level and others also do this, amazing things happen.

The feeling experienced when involved in one of these amazing episodes is one beyond explanation, but is also a key factor in why people are drawn back again and again to efforts larger than themselves. Each element of effort provides value to the end result. Often compliments fly from one person to another as forms of encouragement and wonder at the gifts another holds and lends to this bigger project.

So as you go out into the world today, I’m cheering you on as a sister in Christ to use your gifts and talents with the Fruit of the Spirit. Apply them in your role towards the call given us by Christ (Matthew 28: 16-20). You’ve got this! Amazing and greater things both big and small will happen thanks to the roles you fill.

Blessings to you!
