Our Gifts in God’s Hands

 

handshake“Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might;” Ecclesiastes 9:10, KJV

 

I recently dreamed that I was trying to play a song on the keyboard for my son-in-law to sing.  Now I don’t even know how to turn a keyboard on, let alone play anything on it.  If course, if I had the music in front of me, I might be able to pick out the top line and give him a key to sing it in, but that is the extent of my musical ability.

 

As I pondered on this dream, I realized that when my daughter was little, I had a good job and was able to pay for her to have piano lessons.  Now she is an accomplished pianist and is very capable to accompany her husband as he sings.  That was my contribution to help her develop her musical ability.

 

God gives each of us different gifts, skills and abilities.  All He asks is that we give ourselves completely to Him, and use those talents wisely.  He knows the future and will direct our steps. He only expects us to use what He has given us.

 

Prayer:  Lord Jesus, thank you that you look at us all as individuals, you know the gifts and talents that you have given us, and we desire to give them all back to you.
