In my last post, I shared a list of things I am not good at. Some of those things I may eventually improve on, but some of them I won’t. Even though I may struggle with those things, I don’t let it get me down because there are actually things I am good at (shocking I know). There are things that are easy for me and that come very naturally. Here is a list of ten of the things I am good at.
1. Putting my thoughts into writing
2. Working with kids
3. Being enthusiastic
4. Being social
5. Being a leader
7. Dreaming big
8. Goldeneye 64
9. Dunking on an 8 foot goal
10. Coming up with witty comments
Every one of us has things we are good at. 1 Peter 4:10 says, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” Sometimes our gifts seem to hide in the background because we don’t struggle with them. If we allow them, our weaknesses are easy to focus on. I encourage you to not allow that. Don’t focus on your weaknesses (unless they are causing harm to you or someone else). Instead focus on the things you are good at. Use the talents that God has given you. Not only is it easier, but it will bear more fruit.
until next time…
