Your Spiritual Gifts

Proverbs 18:16 says, "a man's gift makes room for him and brings him before the great."

Back in May I blogged about how your gifts would make room for you. Well, today I want to further elaborate and say that some of us are still not using them for God's glory. We are sleeping on our gifts. And if you're like I once was, you are not using them due to fear of failure, fear of success, worry about what people will say, discomfort with putting yourself out there, and the list goes on. Look, I'm here to tell you that you have to get over that stuff. I stifled myself with all of that whack crazy thinking and all it did was get me further away from my calling and thus, further away from helping those I could help. I know you want to help people and it seems nothing is happening, right? Well, what can be expected when there is nothing consistent about your endeavors? When the full effort is not there? I know what that is like too, because I wasn't consistent for many years until one day when I finally woke up and knew I would go forward and take more chances. That was several years ago, but the real level of consistency started about a year and a half ago. Now I am starting to see the fruits of my labor in many ways, namely that people are telling me how my blog is helping them; how my inspirational posters and videos speak to them, how Sha Sha is encouraging them, and even more.

So I want you to be inspired by what lives inside of you and know that if God put it there it will be used for great things. You can't trust God if you don't trust yourself. Go forth and just try something different. You will get there.

I would like you to hear what Sha Sha has to say about using your spiritual gifts. Sha Sha is my avatar, so her face is based on my face and the voice you hear is actually me speaking through her. Check out what she has to say:

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

Speak things as if they were

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. Do you know you have the power to speak things into existence? Do you know you have the power to change your atmosphere? Oh yes, so speak life to your life and know that the Lord's Word never comes back void. It is always alive and active. It's never too late to start speaking over your life. In   Mark 11 :24 Jesus says, "therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours"  and   Proverbs 23 :7 says, "for as a man thinks in his heart, so is he."  Those verses are proof that when something lives in our heart, all we have to do is open our mouths and speak those things as if we already had them. It's amazing how much power we really have, but we throw it away, because of our lack of faith. I've done that for years and let me tell you, it's not happening anymore. I'm not giving no thing, no one, and no place another inch of m
