God-given Gifts

Posted on Jun 11, 2014 by in Legacy | 1 comment

I am not sure what my gifts are.  My husband and I have been trying to discern what God wants of us.  This process is difficult when I often focus on the negative side of things.  As a melancholic, I find it hard to look on the bright side, yet I appreciate beauty in life when I really slow down enough to enjoy it.  As an artist, I enjoy being creative and looking at things from an unique prospective.  There is color, beauty, and imagination in all things, if one takes a moment to notice.

If I think about when I was young, I turned everything into a song or story.  Whether it was when I was swinging or playing with my dolls, there was music and imagination at work.  My dolls usually ended up breaking into a song as well.  When I had a pen in hand, I would sketch scenes in a storyboard fashion.  As I grew a little older, I started keeping journals, which included poems and songs.  I was always aware of extra information that was not apparent to others.

I have always enjoyed cooking and can get lost in recipes for hours.  I like to serve people and see them have fun, especially when they are enjoying a dish I worked hard on.  Pleasing and helping people makes me smile and feel like I have a purpose.

I am still not sure what type of calling God has in store for me.  My prayer life needs tweaking in order to learn more about how God sees me.  As I work on my relationship with God, he will work on my relationship with myself and the rest of the world.

  1. Trying to reflect on our skills, gifts, and where and how to apply them as our vocation from God is going to be a challenge for sure. You are completely correct in stating that we must make changes within our prayer lives, both individually and as a couple, in order for us to find our true vocations.

    I love and support you in whatever God's plan is for you and for our family.

    Love,
    Chris
