Feed my sheep

I feel like I don't have any extraordinary gifts... I have plenty of gifts mind you, God has blessed me with some great ones! maybe to some, they don't seem like much, but I like them just fine.

Often I wish I was like my friend Katie, who has an encouraging spirit. Today I saw her in the van next to me, and her smile was just energizing, and we didn't even really talk, lol.

I can cook, I feel like it's one of my best gift. I know a lot of people can cook, and I don't make anything really fancy, just things that taste good, and I guess that's good because I will choose good over fancy ANY day.

I've had this dream for so long to pass on to others what I know. Some of my tricks of my trade, some great recipes, and just some great things I know. Today while having breakfast with a great friend/sister, I was reminded of that dream. I wonder how God is going to make it come true... I can't wait to see!

John 21:17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.

Picture from here.

I do enjoy your blog!

I think the key is to allow God to become such a vital, living part of us that He lives and breathes through us and our strength truly comes from Him, not from our regular, ol' human selves. That way, He infuses our gifts with Himself--and there is nothing better. If He gifted us to bake cookies for others, then suddenly we find ourselves making God Cookies. If He's gifted us to write in a blog, we find ourselves writing God Posts, God speaking through our fingers on a keyboard. If we're gifted to run, then we find God running through us, inspiring others by His faithfulness to get out there and do it.

There is no greater gift that we could be doing other than the one(s) God has given us, personally. So what remains is for us to become so connected to God that He freely can move through every single motion we make so He can touch others through us. So he can bless others through even the tiniest, tiniest things we do.

Blessings, Debra
