"Faye's daily words of encouragement" # 13 Todays word is: Gift

We all are blessed with gifts from God, we just need to discover what they are and what to do about them.
We all are blessed with gifts from God, we just need to discover what they are and what to do about them.

"Faye's daily words of encouragement" # 13 Todays word is: Gift

Ecclesiastes  chapter 3 -  verse 13 :And also that every man should  eat and drink, and enjoy the good  of all your labour, it is the gift of God

Matthews chapter  7 - verse 11: If then being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children,how much more shall your father in heaven; give good things to them that ask.

John chapter 4 - 10 : If thou knowest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, give me drink; thou wouldest have given thee living water.

Definition of the word Gift;  Something freely given: a natural ability: the gift of God

When a gift is freely given , it's given directly form the heart.  The bible tells us it is good to desire spiritual gifts, and I think because the  spiritual gifts are from God. Some of us, do acknowledge these gifts and others aren't sure they posses them.

When you aren't sure about your gift or gifts, you should do a prayer and Godly meditation and ask God to reveal to  you, your gift or gifts to you.  So, you can glorify him by using the gifts that he has given you.  I have been blessed in knowing which gifts, I posses and; I try to use them every day of my life in God's service.

My gifts aren't use in the church, but in the every day world that we live in.  I use my gifts by helping others every chance I get.  I relish the idea of helping others, whether it's with materialistc services, or mental  or physical services: I always try to make my self available to the cause.  I do my ministry with joy in my heart and a joyous smile on my face, I  try to glorify his name; every day that I live.

      You have the right talent. It's a blessing to be able to send kind words to be a blessing or an uplifter of the people's hearts minds and soul. It is good that the words and advice is free. People offer help for a price, but we all know that a kind word or help should come sometimes without price tag.

      God Bless you
