This morning, while I was drinking my tea in bed I thought of how we are different. Some people love the feel of soil and are wonderful gardeners, while others hate gardening for the exact opposite reason. They can’t handle soil on their fingers!
Some are performers and some love to be entertained. Some sing, some listen….
Some are excellent with words and some of us just can’t think of what to say! You see, if I could write, I would have an excuse to buy the beautiful journals I see in bookshops.
But that is the mistake we make. We are so busy envying other people for their talents and trying to be like them, that we don’t see our own talents God gave us.
Max Lucado wrote a very good book ( his wonderful talent, writing…). “Living in your sweet spot.” That’s where you’ll be when you use your talents.
Well, I have to be more disciplined and draw more…
But then I remembered that I have actually filled about five journals … with my sermon notes on Sundays. And I enjoy paging through them… Then I made the decision to make a sketch every week in my journal before the next Sunday. And this was the first one.
