Good morning, Grace-filledOne.
What is your gift-‘thing’?
What will you do with it this season to honor the simplicity of the Christ child?
Your gift-thing comes with a load of grace … overflowing … pouring in, so it can be poured right back out.
Maybe your gift is numbers,
or your smile.
Writing brings me satisfaction – pen and paper deliver great joy. Parts of it are fantastic, parts of it are not. Finishing a project or report is good, and I appreciate that it is done and all, but getting a ‘thanks’ or ‘congrats’ is not what brings the greatest joy. I am happiest when I have expressed in writing what I mean – splattered it all out in ink splotches where I can see my heart-thoughts on paper. Not everyone understands that need deep within me to write and share. They don’t have to. So simple … even if it is hard, you will know your gift because of the peace it delivers to your heart. If you choose to share your gift … then, more often than not, it becomes a bridge.
God had a gift.
He shared it.
Savior of the world.
The God of the Angel Armies must want us to use what He gifted each of us with to build bridges, too … the kind that walk us into each other’s lives and memories. So when we lay our gift down, we walk right over it into the heart of another.
This Christmas, I will believe in: your God-delivered gift.
I will be thankful for: the ability to recognize gifts at work for His glory.
I will always remember: the gift of the Savior, whose bridge leads me to eternity.
