You are gifted.

You are gifted.

I know it is so common to grow up thinking you aren't good at anything. I want each person that reads this to open their eyes and realize that you do have a purpose on this earth.

Right now if your life does not revolve around Jesus Christ and His word you will not find that purpose and your life will always lack meaning. That sounds harsh but it is 100% the truth. Your job, husband, in-shape body, children, car, money, family, etc. will never be able to completely satisfy you. 

As a Christian we have a foundational calling to tell more people about Jesus' sacrifice He made for us when He died on the cross. We are called to share with people that their is hope, freedom, and satisfaction in Christ. God TRULY wants this message to be spread to the ends of the earth. 

God has given each of us different gifts or talents that we are meant to use to spread this message and serve Him. God has made me passionate about communicating with people and connecting with them on a deeper level; I love meeting new people and showing them value through the way that I listen and respond. I didn't realize it was a gift until I found out that not everyone loves connecting with people this way and for others it's actually uncomfortable. 

YOU have a gift too. The way you find your gift is by reading God's word, praying for Him to reveal it to you, and getting outside of your comfort zone and serving in the Church. I found my gift through serving in the Church because I had passion behind the tasks I was completing, I knew they were for a bigger purpose than making money for a company or just another job. 

Go get out of your comfort zone, sit and think about the quirky things you do because that may be a part of what your purpose is here on earth. When you are in it for God's glory He is going to have your back and help you succeed. 

You are good at something; tune into Christ and He will reveal it to you and teach you what you need to know.
