Hi, Kings and queens! It’s been a looooong time since I have written any blogs! Oh my gosh I feel so bad. I’ll be honest, I have lost track of my passion with writing. It isn’t always easy but I definitely needed to get myself back on here.
I really wanted to share a message with you all. I’m going to share a new blog for this summer and get back into the swing of things. I promise!🤗
So this months long awaited blog is about ” Resurfacing your gifts- What did God place in your hands?”. It’s basically a question that I feel the Lord pressed upon my heart and I wanted to share. So I hope you enjoy.
Did you ever feel like life was passing you by? Did it ever feel like time was just moving and you can’t see what you have done? It’s as if you see everything moving around you, but you’re in this still mode. Everyone’s running towards their goal and passion and you just seem lost?
Did you ever wonder why it seemed as though everyone else was being blessed and you weren’t. Well I believe I have some answers for you..
For the past few months, I was really frustrated. Feeling as though I was in limbo. I didn’t know if I was going up or down. It didn’t feel like I had anything to offer. I complained ,was angry and bored. I was envious and annoyed. I saw so many other people flourishing in their purpose. I saw so many families being blessed and I didn’t see anything happening for me.
It’s not until recently, God reminded me something and it’s helped me get my mind in the right perspective.
While I was complaining and murmuring about what I didn’t have. I didn’t see what I did have!
Sometimes you won’t know how hungry you are until you make a move,get some food and eat. God made me hungry again. God stayed quiet and I was like.. “Helloooo ,God I need you!” And he was silent showing me how to turn back to what he originally gave me. He made me face … What was always in front of me and allowed me to recall what I had.
I was in the bathroom and I heard the Lord tell me ” What did I give you, what did I put in your hands?” I was literally thinking about money.. I didn’t realize at first what God was trying to say. I was focused on my bills. I was focused on all I needed and the question just had me all messed up. I stood in the shower just thinking.
The question reminded me of the parable of the talents. (See Matthew 25:15- 30)
I immediately realize how it was my fault. It’s not that God wasn’t blessing me. It wasnt that I was lost. It’s that I dropped what he gave me. Ouch!
We are like the slothful one in the parable who buried his one talent. Why? because he looked at the other portions other people got. What about your portion??We’re so focused on how this person has more of something and that we have one talent? We’re not content with the portion we have, so we complain.
The Lord gave me a gift and I buried it. Now I was being reminded to pick it up. You see, the Lord gave us all our own portion of talents, gifts, ablities, and strengths. In so many different ways, we are ALL loaded.
Some of us are artistic, singers, writers, educators, administrators, hospitable, navigators, leaders and etc. Yet the problem is we can be ungrateful. How do you know that the one gift you have may not be fully loaded with extra in it? How do you know that the one book idea you may have ,won’t be a bestseller and open doors for 5 more?
I say all this to say, don’t be dismayed by what you see little of, or that you may not see much in. I always tell my friends that your little may be someone else’s much! I have looked at so many singers and stopped singing. I have seen so many moguls having great bestsellers and I stopped writing. What a waste of time, because I buried my passion and forgot what God put in my hands.
So today I want to ask you.. “What did The Lord place in you? What did he put in your hands”.
You aren’t broke. You aren’t lacking because God has put what you need in you! God didn’t put you on this Earth without a purpose or gift. You may have not discovered your treasure because you’re discovering someone else’s gems and fail to see your own.
A basketball In Michael Jordans hands made him a millionaire.
A rod in Mose’s hands made him a deliverer
A voice like Beyonce’s made her famous. But what about you?
Are you a writer? A singer, a teacher, a public speaker, an anchor in the making? What is in you? God has placed a gift in you,that has to resurface because there’s greater in you! I believe it’s your time now to reactivate the fire . Stir up the gifts and go for what lies ahead of you! What’s in the past cant dictate what’s in your future.
Today, I want to encourage whoever is reading this blog with this:
Whatever God has placed in you is not lost. It’s in you!! It’s time to resurface your gifts. It’s time to rediscover what you have covered.
I pray today a divine reset over your life. I pray that all that you’ve buried because of fear or shame may be resurrected and revived In Jesus name. Don’t be like the one that was slothful and buried his one talent because he saw others have 2 or 5. Work out that 1 till the one talent opens doors and brings you before great men.
I believe in you, I’m praying for you and I know that what God has placed in you will be a blessing. Go pick it back up. The world is waiting. Go and make your father in heaven proud.
Your sister in Christ,
A queen with soul 👑
