Identify Your Gift- God Gave You One

From My Heart

“The gift of fantasy has meant more to me

than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge”.

Albert Einstein


Lord, I know there is a lot to be serious about in life,

but there is a need for levity, too.

Laughter is good medicine and lowers your

blood pressure quicker than a pill can do.


You have given us the gift of “Helps”

Look around.  There is always a need.

The good Lord turned my home into a “cat haven”

I now have eight cats to feed!


The gift of fantasy has served me well throughout the years.

Born during the “Great Depression”,

I wrote poetry to dispel my fears.


Magazines were a great source of material

used in composing cards for family or a friend.

I cut out a “knight in shining armor,”

which pleased my father to no end.


Have you identified your gift from God?

There is no doubt you have one.

God has created us in His own image.

We now have fellowship with the Son.

    I love your thinking, Barbara. Anyone who looks at the cross and fails to see the love of God there needs their spiriual eyes opened. Have a God blessed day!

    I think we tend to think our gift must be something grand as recognized by society.

    Nice post. I’m really surprised at the number who don’t realize they have a gift. 🙂

      Maybe they just haven’t recognized “the source” yet, Levi. I pray their spiritrual eyes will be opened to the Truth,

        Another excellent article. I have to agree with Levi, too many people don’t even know they have a God given gift. Perhaps if they knew, they would realize just how much God loves them.
