Today I woke up kind of with a blah feeling and wondered what I could do to change it. Instantly I thought what if I could send a message to all of my friends and family saying something nice about them. How long would that take me to do? Would it make me feel any better? I don’t know the answer to either of those questions but I’m willing to find out.
Do you know who you are outside of your job or family? If your family didn’t exist how would you want to be described? If you were let go from your job tomorrow how would you describe yourself? If you cannot answer these two questions I encourage you to ponder them deeper.
Do you feel like there’s something more you should be doing in life? If so, take the time to figure out what it should be. Spend thirty minutes per day experimenting and reading about the thing you are interested in.
Why should you spend time working on the things you are interested in? It could be your legacy or the whole reason of why you were put here on this earth. When you find joy in something, you have to wonder why it creates such joy in you. Someone else could do the same thing and completely hate it.
You will have many long years to live on this earth; can you imagine being miserable for 50 years (half) of your life? Misery comes from not finding your purpose.
You aren’t the only one who is going through something tough. I know it feels like you are alone but you aren’t. It’s a temporary situation that is guiding you to where you need to be. It could be that you are meant to become a new person to deal with the situation. The only way to become the person is to be introduced to the situation you are in.
Don’t focus on the bad thing that is currently happening. Do what you need to do and cry, scream or yell but continue to see what good things you have going for yourself.
In the bible there are many situations where someone found themselves in tough times. Each time they didn’t rely on themselves or even their friends or family. They called out to God because he was first in their life. He was the only one that could truly pull them out of their situation.
“People who do what is right may have many problems, but the Lord will solve them all”. PSALM 34:19 NCV
You aren’t alone even though it feels like it, in addition it feels like you are walking a path and everyone is judging you. When you feel like everyone is watching you it’s because you have their attention; which is the platform God needs to everyone how he’s helping you. Use your spiritual gifts to show that God has your back.
“Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.” PSALM 31:24 KJV
To get the full usage of your gifts be grateful for them. When you are alone or around others don’t hesitate to show your gratitude. This will open the door for your gifts to be improved or for you to activate additional ones. You won’t always be aware of all your gifts at once. Some spiritual gifts only show themselves when needed or when you reach a certain point in your life.
Your potential is the possibility of what you could become. Deep inside you have a dream of what you think it should be. It’s truly not a dream but a nudge from your spirit to get going. You struggle because you are looking for reassurance from your friends and family. They cannot help you because they can’t see the vision/dream that was given to you by the spirit. Until you decide to take a step towards that potential of what you can become nothing will change for you.
Today, is the day for you to stand up and use everything that you have to grow. You are only a victim because you see yourself that way. Reverse what you think and believe that you will win. Don’t worry about how long it will take you to win just know that you are going to win. You can’t fail if you believe the spiritual gifts you have inside are enough.
When you discover your gifts you would think it would get easier. It will actually get a little more difficult. Something will come against you but you have to continue yo push and pray. Refuse to give up because your gift and the desire that is burning within you is all that you need.
To understand your spiritual gifts you must be in contact with your spirit. To fully get clarity of how and when to use your gift comes from the spirit.
It is possible to find your spiritual gift without the spirit but you will have confusion. The spirit gives the guidance to you and points you in the right direction of what to do with it.
I’m sure if you look back you’ll be able to recognize a gift you had since you were a child. It’s something that you loved to do but stopped because you had to make a living. It didn’t fit in with what you thought it meant to be an adult. You may need to revisit that gift again and grow it. Once you grow a gift it can be more powerful than you could imagine.
