We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.
I've always loved these verses from Romans 12! It assures me that God has provided each one of us with unique gifts and talents to develop, share and employ for His glory.
I'm so thankful my Father saw fit to grace me with a penchant for writing, has allowed me to pen and publish six novels, and now allows me, through this blog, to encourage others in their walk with the Lord.
Our granddaughter, Virginia Rose, is demonstrating, at the age of nine, how God has blessed her with artistic skills. Just as I had a passion for books and writing as a child, Virginia loves, loves, loves to draw! First photos shown here are ones she creates from her imagination.
And the next batch? Virginia uses internet images to draw these creatures free hand.
Okay, friends, I know I maintain a hefty Gammie bias, but honestly, I do think these drawings display a precocious aptitude for art with Virginia. It is my hope and prayer that she will continue to pursue her passion, polish her skills, and do it all in thankfulness for this amazing gift God has given her.
