Hope this day is treating you well. Please know that there’s not a day that goes by to where I’m not thinking about my fellow warriors. It’s only been 11 days since I’ve posted on this blog, but why does it feel like an Eternity? Friends, I want you to know that I’m committed to speaking to the warrior within you. My prayer is that I cause you to think, and rise above every pit, problem, or circumstance you may face. Like many of us, I wear multiple hats and I must say that being a seasoned professional by day, business owner, student of life, volunteer, wife, and mother (and many other things that I’m forgetting) is not easy at all. You may ask, how do I do it? The only answer I can give you is God’s grace and mercy. My understanding is that…
But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26, KJV).
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing (John 15:5, KJV).
With that being said, may I speak to the all of the multi-dimensional people that God has given many gift(s) and talents? You may hear others parenthetically say, “what I’m doing is only a piece of my passion.” Frustration sets in when you want to operate in all of them at one time and simply can’t. The latter is truly a recipe for disaster, chaos, and massive confusion, among other things. God has called us to live in peace, and as a friendly reminder, we’re human and not omnipresent. God is the only one that can be everywhere at the same time, because He’s just that powerful.
The point is this: Allow God to pull on your gifting as needed. He may pull on one gift more than the other in a particular season. Nothing just happens. You’re always in the right place at the right time! Beloved, if what you’re believing God for hasn’t manifested, be encouraged on today. His promises are always yes and Amen, according to His plan for your life (not what you throw together and ask Him to bless).
There is a right time for everything, and everything on earth will happen at the right time (Ecclesiates 3:1, ERV).
Until we meet again, I love you to life. Cheers to God’s perfect timing. I challenge you to take a survey of what you are doing on a daily basis with your time, money, and resources. How are you operating in your gift(s) and talents? Are you leading others to worship and glorify you for the sake of counterfeit validation and praise from others ? Please be advised that this is a very dangerous space to operate in. Or are you operating in your gift(s)/talents in order to direct others back to Jesus? Don’t be shy, drop me a line or two in the comments below.
