But desire the greater gifts. And I will show you an even better way. (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭12‬:‭31‬ HCSB)

Good mornin’, Sweets- there was a picture floating around on Facebook yesterday of a third world child giving a drink of water to a younger, malnourished soul. The caption was something like “next time you find yourself complaining, remember things could be worse.”
It wasn’t long til I heard myself complaining about something minuscule and stupid. And, the image of that child pouring life into another flashed like a furious bolt of lightening into my brain.
I hate that.
I was totally busted.
I bowed out of that conversation immediately, and said, “God, just keep on slapping me back into place with Truth. Please. Every time. Hit me with a two by four each time I start to succumb to the enemy’s trap of pettiness.”
Like you, God Most High has chosen some of His people to speak life into me at various peak and valley times. And, it always blows my mind because the affirmation and nourishment is so much more than the self-defeating thoughts and tiny dreams that I have of myself.
I’ve been scared-praying this verse for a while, half wanting His greater gifts to explode in me so I can pour more of Him out into another, yet half enjoying my comfort zone. He’s saying, “Ang, you desire to be taken there, and I desire to show you, but you’ve got to do the work on your end.”
The Almighty’s timing is so delicious.
Wake up.
Desire His greater gifts.
Pour into someone.
