I Have a Gift

Yes!  I have a gift.  A gift that I have been discouraged from using.  A gift that has been mainly left in this beautiful box for most of my life.

Silenced.  For this gift makes others uncomfortable.

And yet, I have used this gift many times to edify – to exhort – to comfort others.

People like that – to be encouraged to be who they are.

But with my gift, I have had no one to encourage me.  Until now.  Now I have found others who have gifts similar to mine – and I have been accepted.

I think this is why my year has been focused around being brave.

I have been protected these past two years in a place of quietness and solitude.  I have been given the privilege of sitting at the feet of others like me to discover my purpose in life.  And I am forever grateful.

I have been given the “go ahead” to stand firmly in this gift – take it out of the box – permanently – to use  for the glory of God.  I am excited.

My Song:  This is very different.  One that I have never heard before.  It gives me courage to stand and share – share what God has done in my life in spite of what others may have tried to kill within me.

Have you ever had a gift that you were not allowed to open?  To share with others?  That you were told it wasn’t for today?

I have!

How do we not encourage children?  How do we not encourage one another?

Will you let me share my gift?
