Hey, fabulous readers! I’m sorry it’s been a while since my last blog post. My family and I were in North Carolina visiting relatives. I had a great time. We went to the beach, swam at the pool, played cards, hung out with family and went on a board walk. At the board walk I got to see baby tiger cubs!!! They were so adorable and now I want one, lol. But while we were there we found out from our friend who was taking care of our pets that our old cat, Ali, died. We don’t know when she died but she found her underneath the stairs. I’m pretty sad about it because I’ve known Ali all my life but I’m also relieved that she died naturally. That was my prayer.
I’ve gotten better with guitar and I think I might be obsessed. I finally found another strumming pattern and I’m really glad. Oh, I have also written a few song and two are getting worked on. *Sigh* Guitar is amazing. I discovered a new talent from God. He is the One that blesses everyone with those gifts. He’s given me a gift of singing, art, playing guitar and probably more I haven’t discovered yet. God gives each person a talent to use for His glory, so you should use it to give Him the glory. Isn’t it so cool how He gave you that talent as a gift!? If you can sing, sing for Him and make a joyful noise. If you can paint or draw, use it for His glory somehow. If you play an instrument, play for Him. Whatever talent God gave you, use it for Him and His glory.
Also, whatever you are doing, do it for Him. Even weeding the garden or doing school work. Don’t be lazy. God wouldn’t want that. Let’s say you turned in your homework (Most of you are home schooled so let’s say you gave your work to your parents) and all of the work was sloppy and you didn’t even give your best. Umm, not okay! God wants you to do your best work, no matter what. Okay, so, what if your parents give you a chore and it could be the worst chore in the world. Hmm…maybe scrubbing toilets with a sponge until they were as clean when you first got them. Even if they did give you that, God would want you to do it for Him. And you know what? This all narrows down to “Do all things without grumbling or complaining.” If they gave you a chore, you went and did and you had an attitude about it, it’s still disobeying God. Know why? Because He says to honor your father and mother and do all things without grumbling or complaining. I must admit that I need to work on this, as well.
Have a joyful day!
What about you? What talents did God give you?
