Gifts

Some people have to work incredibly hard for things that come incredibly easy for others.

I have to work my butt off to complete one homework assignment in my statistics class while some students complete 5 in the same amount of time.

I can sit down and write a blog post or an essay in ten minutes because I am great at writing and putting my thoughts on paper. Some people struggle to get their thoughts down and essays are their worst nightmares.

Some people have to strategically diet and exercise to lose a pound while others can eat cheeseburgers and never gain a pound. Some people have to work hard to gain weight while others, like my blessed self, can eat a snap pea and still gain weight.

All jokes aside, what’s easy for you might be hard for me and what’s tough for you might be something I can do in my sleep. We all have gifts given to us by a God who knew us before we were in our mother’s womb.

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart. {Jeremiah 1:5}

He set us apart from others before we were even born, y’all. Our gifts are OURS and that is something you can take to the bank and cash in. Don’t compare what he’s doing or what she’s selling to what you’re accomplishing. You’re on completely different paths with completely different gifts on a completely different timeline, and that is perfectly okay. Embrace your gifts, and don’t be afraid to work hard for what you want because anything is within your reach.
