Use My Gifts!

Judges 3:15

But when the people of Israel cried out to the Lord for help, the Lord again raised up a rescuer to save them. His name was Ehud son of Gera, a left-handed man of the tribe of Benjamin. The Israelites sent Ehud to deliver their tribute money to King Eglon of Moab.

Lord, you used Ehud's special ability, left-handedness, to defeat the Moabites. You have given me special abilities as well. Help me to use them for your glory wherever I am.

It seems that you have me embarking on a new season in possibly a new career. I pray that you will lead me to the job you have for me. Let me use the skills you have given me not just to advance my career, but to shine the light of your love to a dark and dying world.

This is an exciting yet scary time for me, Lord! There are so many details that I can't see how they are going to turn out well if I am working full-time. But since you seem to be leading me down this path, I will choose to trust you!

 In Jesus' name, amen. <3

God is: leading me and in control
I am: gifted with many special abilities, talents and skills
My purpose is: use my abilities, talents, and skills for his glory and to show his love to the world.

Trust him, and he will help you.
