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.
Amen! I needed this post because I just started blogging over two weeks ago and it has encouraged a lot of my friends and family. Sometimes we are met with opposition from people that we would’ve thought would support us. My gift is teaching and I love to study and grow every day. I’m pretty sure some think that my light is a little too bright ?because they tend to look away from the light??. I pray to have the courage that I need to continue to blog to encourage others and teach at my church. We must remember to pray for those who want to dim our light, or better yet turn it off or blow it out??
Thanks for your post?And God Bless!
