Our task as God's Children

So I have been fighting with some things and mainly the questions of, what does God want me to do with my life? Well I prayed and He answered...quicker than I expected but hey! Im not complaining.

I found out that our task as God's children is to find our personal area of giftedness and talent and to use it for Him. Perhaps your God-given creativity lies in the area of teaching, parenting, sewinig, accounting, administrating, comforting, building, computing, organizing, or landscaping. He may have blessed you as a creative athlete, musician, caregiver, counselor, food preparer, or mechanic. But here is the thing, your talent is between you and God, not you and someone who thinks you should do something else or that what you are doing is a sin or not right... Dont let someone put doubt intp your mind and heart about the goals and ambitions that God has put there. If you think or know that this is where He has placed you, then dont give up and keep pushing through because it will make you the happiest you have ever been and you will be an inspiration and light to someone that may have a similar gift or a need that you have fulfilled through Him.

Galatians 6:9
"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."

But also remember: "Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful. "
