“Your talent is God’s gift to you.
What you do with it is your gift back to God”
It becomes harder to believe, as you constantly grew-up hearing, “you’re good for nothing” and your emotions compel you to believe – “you are scum”.
My career scores are average!
I have no idea about art and music!
I’m not good looking!
I’m not good in sports!
I don’t know how to pen thoughts!
Even a bull is better than me…
Somewhat this was my journey from “tween to twenty”…
Until you get a turning-point in life you can’t discover the new road and can’t experience how well you can drive!
After getting to the turning point, I met many new people in life. Some were better than me… some were just like me… some were not better than me.
It was the evening of 12th February 2015. I was in a malady and so was my friend with hers. As she shared her situation, I tried to encourage her though it was quite tough then. Our chat ended with a note from her – “okay… I will… You are really a champ dear… I know you are not in a good state but still you are encouraging me… thanks.”
As you comfort others in affliction, God will comfort you through!
It’s tough but POSSIBLE. Be courageous and know that God is with you when you walk through the valleys of death and the high seas of life.
I love to inspire people with morning messages mostly from the Bible. But I didn’t know that, I could even write!
It was 10th January 2016. I meet the Candles man “Chiradeep Patra”. While on our way back from church, he asked me, ‘what do you love to do?’ One of my replies was, ‘I love to share my life with people and love to inspire them with good morning quotes as most of them are away from me.’ Immediately he offered me to write for Candles Online. Though it was a good offer, it was like jumping into the river without the knowledge of swimming. I just prayed, took courage and said, “let me give it a try” and I wrote my first article – “How Good Is Our Mask Of Pretence?” Now inspiring people through writing has become a part of my life. I feel ungrateful to my Highness without doing the part of this heavenly task daily.
You might not have a bag of talents but trust me, “He has fearfully and wonderfully made you in your mother’s womb and has ordained your days. He has assigned you with a purpose. Trust him just as you are, take the courage and be passionate to invest your hidden talents for the heavenly cause.” (The Bible)
