Do you ever feel like your fire’s going out?
You know, you’ve done this and you’ve done that but nothing’s really working?
God gives each one of us gifts and talents – no doubt about that. I hope you know what yours are because it’s important. And, I hope you are using them. God gifted me with the gift of encouragement and the gift of words. Every single week I put my gifts to work. I send out cards, emails, make myself available for listening. I post on this blog. By doing these things I keep my gifts blazing. I fan into flame the embers of the talents and gifts GOD gave me.
Young Timothy was Apostle Paul’s protegé. At the beginning of Timothy’s ministry Paul laid hands on him blessing the gifts that God had imparted on Timothy. In this scripture Paul is reminding young Timothy to “fan into flame the gift of God.”
Next time you’re around a bonfire and you can safely bend low and blow on a hot coal or ember – watch what happens…flames will burst forth.
Same thing! Get some holy gumption and blow some life on your gifts and talents and watch your hope blaze full.
HOPE CHANGES EVERYTHING!
