If God Gives A Gift You Had Better Use It

Updated on November 14, 2011

If God Gives A Gift You Had Better Use It

If God gives you a gift you had better use it,

You don't dare neglect it or throw it away.

The Lord Has chosen you for a purpose,

You'll know the "Why" sometime,someday.

Perhaps you are meant to touch a loved one,

Or maybe someone that you chance to meet.

Perchance just a kind deed you can offer,

Or give a smile to a stranger on the street.

Just use the gift that God has given to you 

And He will teach you how to use it  the best.

When a gift is sent from Our Lord Above

You will know that it is  right and Blessed.

So hold onto your precious Heavenly  gift.

It is the Lord's so .just  handle it with care.

Take the first step into the great unknown,

Be assured that Our Lord will meet you there.

If you do not  treat it as something Precious,

This gift from the Heavenly  Father Divine.

He may rue the day that He had ever sent it ,  

Retrieve it and give it to the next  one in line.

Do not ever think of it as just being useless,

Do not throw it away  just like a piece of sod.

With what you now have  souls may be saved.

So use it  wisely ,whatever is your gift from God!


Whenever God gives someone a favor then

some people may laugh and make fun and

remind you that there are other things to be

done and that you are just wasting your time.

If you really know in your heart that this is 

from God then you must do what ever He 

wants of you ,If you have given your heart

then He must take first  place in your life.It

won't always be easy  but the Lord will help 

you in His chosen task !

      You are so right about not wasting our God given gifts. I am discovering that as I am growing in the spirit, new gifts are unfolding every time and I better get moving and bless others with those gifts because one of the main reasons God gives us gifts is not for our pleasure alone but to bring comfort and inspiration to despondent souls so that they too can discover God's gifts buried withing them and continue the cycle of sharing the gifts. Thanks for writing this insightful hub.

      Ann, I have always felt that God gives these poems to reach people, I am not sure how much good I am doing but I am trying to get them out on here,I was on LearnPoetrySite. com before I came on here. It was not as far reaching as the Hubpages are but I did get some good comments there. I do not have any other talents except cooking , baking , sewing, crocheting ,Poetry has always been at the top of my list.If God doesn't give me a message for a poem I may as well not try to write,My best friend really has a talent , she comments on here sometimes. She and her husband have a channel on Utube it is called Testaview Channel and it is more country gospel , they write a lot of their songs, if you get a chance go and see what you think of it. thanks for the comment,cclara
