Was He talking to me??? I had to stop and laugh the moment I saw read the sticker. Yes, I felt the Lord was talking to me!
The message was on a microphone of all places. How appropriate for one who calls herself a 'speaker'! "Dummy Mic" it said. (No comments allowed from my two friends who read this : ) I thought about what God called me, not a speaker, but a voice...a voice for Him. The 'dummy mic' fit perfectly. He Speaks...I am just the outlet.
My friend B mentioned the fact that my husband's name is Mike. Get it? Dummy Mic (Mike). There were two of us! I got 'the look' when I shared that with my hubby. A smile at the right moment can get you out of the dog house.
Have you identified your gifts? We have all been gifted to serve our neighbor. And who is our neighbor? Sometimes we still want further clarification on the whole 'neighbor' thing. Read Jesus' response to that question in Luke 10: 30-37.
If we want to have eyes that see, God will show us people who are stranded on the side of the road in life. They have almost given up. Many people have already passed them by. They have no hope. We can see the pain from their wounds. They need to see the Great Physician. God wants to use our gifts so they can see Him, not us!
Step out in faith today and use your gifts to be a blessing to someone else.
Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms. 11 If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:10-11
Use it or Lose it!
