Pile of gorgeous gifts

1 Corinthians 12:4 (NKJV)

There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit

 

The keyboard had been still for so long that a fine sheen of dust was starting to form.  How could this be?  There was a project a deadline and expectations, yet the torrent of words would not and did not come.  A few trickled out but they just were not good enough. Dull, flat, lifeless and totally without meaning.

 

Fingers diligently knitted away at air then began, cranking out hats, cowls and scarves.  Preparing breakfast and managing loads of laundry but no words.  Anxiety set in, “must force self to write words” became my mantra, still silence persistently continued.

 

Physically, I felt myself giving in to illness projected by my inability to successfully produce what was promised.  I deplore disappointing people but I had less than nothing.  I sat quietly, patiently and expectantly talking to God and continued to wait.  There were no words, until this morning.

 

In our devotional reading I was again reminded about how much God loves each and every one us and I got it.  I was veering out of my lane, heading into unknown territory outside of the gift and talent God had given to me.  God gives each one of us gifts and talents and when we attempt to divert those talents into areas not blessed by God for us, it just doesn’t work.  Words do not flow, art does not merge from brushes, fabric does not turning to the latest fashion and songs remain un written and unsung.

 

What God has for you truly is for you.  Silence does not mean that God is not speaking but that my ear needed to be tuned to more closely hear the lesson.

 

Making His praise glorious!
