I have a gift from God. I also have many talents that God has blessed me with. A gift from God will never be taken away from you, but you can lose a talent.
When I talk about a gift and a talent I am reminded of the parable in Matthew. Basically, people are given talents, some of them are used, and they gain more talents. One person hordes his talent, and it is lost. That is the extreme Reader’s Digest version.
At one point in my life, I was an amazing musician. I played bass, guitar, and drums. I could also sing pretty good as well. However, I am currently not as good as I once was. I decided to horde my talent thus, I can’t play as well as I used to.
I did, however, invest in many other talents. Web design/Graphic design (Everything on this site is all me.), sales, marketing, motivation, and many many more.
My gift is communication. I love to talk and write. This wasn’t learned. Truthfully, I love being an introvert. If you were to ask people that I went to high school with, they would describe me as quiet, and shy (probably skinny and tall too).
Anyone that knows me now would completely laugh in the face of someone that calls me quiet. They would probably laugh almost as loud as my English teachers when you told them I was a writer.
I really don’t know what happened. I woke up one day with something to say, and a passion to tell it. I never meet a stranger, and despite my introvert desires I can’t stop meeting new people.
My “message” will never leave me. I could lose my arms and still talk. I could lose my voice and still write. I could lose both, and learn to tap out Morse code with my feet.
How can this help you?
When you realize your talent, you can begin to live with purpose. When you live with purpose, you can begin to create a legacy. Always remember if you live your entire life without creating a legacy, once you die, it will be as if you never existed.
