I’ve been thinking about this topic for a while now but it wasn’t until I shared it with a friend and she said I should blog about it did I actually become inspired enough to share…
I love Pinterest, Facebook, and reading blogs to see what other people are doing. It’s great to be exposed to so many ideas that I’ve never seen before. However, it can also be overwhelming to realize that there are so many things that I don’t know how to do. This can make me feel inadequate in life, especially being a new mom. But I’ve realized it’s good to recognize your gifts, passions, and talents and be happy with what God has given you.
I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’m not a fantastic cook. I can cook but I don’t have that strong passion to make these extraordinary meals. I cook simply and I cook healthily. (I think I will share some simple, healthy meals that I make in one of my future posts.) I’ve also come to terms with the fact that I’m not a seamstress. I’ll be honest, I can’t really even sew a button. I really admire people that can cook and sew and are really crafty. But, I’m not going to compare myself to other people and I’m not going to be envious of other people’s gifts.
God made me the way I am for a reason. I know He gifted me to love children and to work with children. I know that He gifted with me to love fitness, working out and taking care of my body. I also know He created me to share my gifts and passions with others. He also made me an encourager. I love to help people and encourage them.
What are your God given gifts and abilities? He made you perfectly just the way He wanted you to be.
“Do what God has anointed you to do. God designs us and puts gifts in us. He designed you to operate in your gift. Embrace the gift God has given you. Don’t throw it away. You will have peace and joy when you operate in your gifts.” –Joyce Meyer
Friends, God has a purpose and a plan for your life!
