If you are anything like me, you probably assume you lack talents, could possibly be in the process of discovering them, or you have not really put much thought into identifying what those God-given gifts are. I know the feeling all too well. I have spent practically my whole life looking at some of the most talented people wishing I had their skill, completely oblivious to the fact that I have a few of my own. If the same goes for you, it is time to re-evaluate, sis.
Truth is, as indicated in Matthew 25:14-30, God has created every human differently and has given each one of us unique capacities and abilities. There is absolutely no one to whom God has not given anything. Your job, or better yet, purpose in life is to discover them, serve others, and ultimately give Him glory. After all, that is the very reason for our existence.
As I recently took time to reflect on myself, I realized that my perception is very complex. Similar to how we cannot see what is on our faces without looking in the mirror, we also may not be able to see the things we are best at. Other times, (in my case at least) we also forget that talents extend beyond dancing or having a great singing voice.
While reflecting on my past, I discovered the one gift I did not consider a talent, yet genuinely enjoyed — writing. Of course I am no pro, but after many prayers regarding this, I have decided to do one thing..
Take a leap of faith.
Starting a blog is the very last thing I ever thought I would do, but I believe God wants me to use this talent as a way to reach and encourage young girls and women to not only walk in their divine purpose, but also seek after righteousness. Truth be told, I have absolutely no idea where this will lead, but I am hoping my words will greatly impact one life, if not many.
