We are all given gifts from God and often we simply do not know how to develop them so that we can share them with those around us. Here are a few tips I found that I want to share.
- Focus on the strengths God gave you. Concentrating on your strengths will help you fulfill the calling God has put on your life.
- Exercise your gift or gifts. Find something you like to do and that you do well, and do it over and over again. Want to know what will happen? You will feel better about yourself because you won’t be constantly failing.
- Have the courage to be different. Unhappiness comes when you try to be like everyone else rather than embracing the unique person that you are.
- Learn to cope with criticism. Have enough confidence in who you are in Christ that you can listen to others and be open to change without feeling you have to agree with their viewpoint or attain their approval
Remember, God has planted greatness in us all. Let today be the start of a great adventure as you step into the gifts that He has given you.
God I want to cultivate and develop the gifts You’ve given me. Give me the courage to follow You and develop the gifts and abilities You’ve put inside me.
