This morning at church, the word was received and the holy spirit spoke through a brethren saying “ I have instilled in YOU a gifting to go minister to others but YOU are not utilizing it.” This truly hit home. I remembered God told me I have placed many of my gifting’s within you, use it to share the gospel. This said gifting is writing as I mentioned before in one of my blogs. However, I got so tied up in life’s activities and began to neglect this gift from God. Neglect is so close to failure to me. I would never want to neglect what has implanted in me because of my hectic schedule. Folks often sometimes say God understands what we do on a regular base and He knows how hard we work to meet where we are. Even in our busy schedule, we should put aside a time to communicate with God because it’s He that is giving us this enduring strength to be able to live through the day. In God’s mind, we are not successful if we abandon what he has called us to do. What would happen when we constantly give up on something when we see we aren’t giving it our full attention? My mom would say finish what you’ve started, though it may seem difficult in the beginning, the end result will be worth it. Distractions may arise but we have to press through. God understands that what we start may not be always easy. Whether it be business, marriage, job hunting, friendship, family or even God’s gifting’s, let’s keep pressing on to the finish line.
2 Timothy 4:7 ” I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
