Came to an abrupt end.
This is partly due to the cold bug that decided to live in my body for a time causing me to do as little as possible outside of my daily tasks. This happens. Life happens. The experiment was just that – an experiment. I learned about my self. I went deeper into who I am. I shared with those who chose to stop by.
No, I did not reach Day 40 but I am still here.
I managed to push the cold bug away and I am still here.
Today I’ve been led to look at my spiritual gifts. After a year of formalized “discernment” and many years of self-reflection I am able to see my gifts. Here are a few:
I have certain skill sets that come from these gifts. I have talents that allow me to share my gifts.
The question is, “How do I feel and acknowledge these gifts today?”
Am I sensitive to myself? Do I allow the flaws that I see and feel in myself to become more than the perfection that God created in me?
Can I have compassion with myself? Do I give myself permission to give – time, energy and love back to myself?
Yes, these are all about me. Here’s what happens though. When you give to yourself, when you acknowledge your unique gifts and talents, then you are able to more fully share with others.
This is the goal. In taking care of myself I will have more energy and love to share.
How do you feel about your spiritual gifts today? How will you share those with yourself and others?
