Are you sabotaging your gifts?

You are born with a gift that should be shared with everyone you come into contact with. You are gifted and your were born  to shine.

Unfortunately there are people who do not appreciate the gifts that they are born with and will go as far as to sabotage it. Below are 3 reasons why someone may self sabotage their gift.

  1. Self Hate ~ This is such  powerful emotion that affects a person’s perception of who they are and their body image.
  2. Comfort zone ~ Everyone has a comfort zone they retreat to when a new challenged is faced. The unfortunate thing is that nothing grows in comforts zones and it will keep you in a very small box where expression is not possible because of fear.
  3. Fear ~ This can be a root that holds a person back and holds their gift hostage as some people are afraid of succeeding.

Dear reader if  you are someone who has hidden your gift for any of the reasons above or for any other reason then I am challenging you to take steps to change your mind and heart towards your gift.

Take time to examine why you self sabotage what God has placed in side of you because only YOU can share and bless others with what God placed inside of you.

When are you going to start believing, acknowledging, using and releasing the gifts that God placed inside of you? To continue to bury or deny these gifts is to deny and bury  the uniqueness God placed inside of you.

Psalms 34:4-6 shares how David sought the Lord and the Lord heard him and delivered him from all his fears. If your fears, lack of confidence and low self-esteem is keeping you from cultivating your gifts then you need to cry out in prayer as David did and ask God to deliver you from your fears. God can and will deliver you from your insecurities and fears if you ask him.

Your gifts are necessary, the people you need to touch are waiting, the holy spirit of God is waiting. When are you going to release the gift?

God’s Best Kept Secret!

  

There are so many people who have gifts and talents that lay dormant in there spirit. Gifts and talents that the world is waiting to be blessed by. That’s why I called my guest blogging feature “God’s Best Kept Secret”  (click onto the page God’s best kept secret, at the top of my blog for more information)

These people go to work, look after their families, go to school and basically live their lives. But there is a creative part in them, that is a true expression of whose God created them to be. Be it singing, writing, painting, sewing whatever, that creativity needs to be shared with the world

What is your gift? What is that creative part of you? Are you hiding it because of fear of what people will say? Are you worried that if you share it people may not like it and reject you? Listen if people reject your gift they are rejecting the person who gave you that gift.

Do not be afraid to shine in your sphere of influence. Matthew 5:15 ~ 16 says

” Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candle stick; and it giveth  light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your father which is in heaven.”

Are you hiding your light in a secret place? Is it just you enjoying your gift? Remember your gift is to bring light to others so it can iluminate the dark areas of their lives. Jesus came and shared His light so we can have abundant life and light and He expects us to do the same.

So dear heart dust off your candle stick and prepare to shine because you are one of God’s best kept secret.
