How much of your days are chasing something that isn’t yours? Unwrap your gift and experience a full life.
Too much of what we want in life is sometimes what shouldn’t be ours to begin with.

But the temptation and desire to have what we want can get in the way of what God desires for us.
And nothing is worse than us getting in the way of God.
How many times have you been successful in doing things your way?
If I think back to the times of what I wanted rather than leaning into what God wants, I was always left with empty.
Unwrap your gift.
You have been given unique talents and gifts that set you apart from the pack. It’s what makes you unique!
And wrapped in these talents and gifts are the key to discovering whom God created you to be and your calling.
When you operate in your gifts, you live within God’s divine design. How extraordinary! How magnificent!
The K.I.S.S. ~ Unwrap your gift!
As I have been working on the AIM Academy and constructing two courses, I’ve been challenged by the thoughts of my gifts and talents.
Am I using what God has given me?
But then it’s taking it a step further. Am I using God’s given gifts and talents?
Oh how we can complicate what we think is our gifts verses what really is. We can try and make things happen, because of our selfish desires.
My prayer is for you to discover the gifts and talents God wants for you, not just the ones that catch your personal interest.
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” ~ Ephesians 2:10
I have chased my own interests and boy that did not get me far. In fact, it usually was harder work than that of tuning in to God’s gifts and talents.
How are you using your gifts?
Are you leaving them to develop themselves, or are you honing your skills?
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” ~ James 1:7
Your gifts are not wasted. They are to be cherished, developed, and strengthened further.
“Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank.” ~Proverbs 22:29
Unwrap your gifts.
Don’t let your gifts go unclaimed or buried simply because of excuses or a way of life you’ve chosen.
During this time of Lent and a time in your week where you can reflect, ponder if you are using your gifts and talents.
Don’t take for granted what God has given to you!
“Unwrap your gift.”
