Happy New Year Everyone!
While people are making goals and resolutions for 2013, I've decided to just do. I told a really good friend of mine that I'm ready to run for God!! God gives each of us gifts and talents in which he expects us to use. Many of our gifts lay dormant. I don't want to be like the servant in Matthew 25 (read when you have time) that took his talent and buried it in the ground because he didn't know what to do with it. When the Master returned to find there was no increase from the servants talent, the Master took it away and gave it to someone else.
God has blessed many of us with multiple gifts and talents. We are to use them to make a difference in our world. Don't be afraid to step out and move in your talents. Make a conscious effort to do! If God gave them to you, you are qualified and capable of succeeding in those areas.
This is my favorite quote for 2013:
“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.”
