As many of you may recall from a previous post, I had been reading The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. I’ll admit, while it was supposed to be a 40-day read, it took me a bit longer. I didn’t want to rush through it, but actually take notes, study, reflect as well as memorize scriptures. This was a fascinating read and I’ve learned so much. Although certain aspects of the book were stressful, I knew that I was simply being tested because as a whole, it provided confirmation that I’ve been on the right path. I clearly also recognized areas I need to work on. The title above is from chapter 32 which truly stood out for me so I’m sharing the scripture below. I will likely be sharing more of my experiences from the book in future post as I now take my time with dissecting what I’ve learned.
In another post I wrote titled https://5thgenerationgirl.blog/2021/07/18/we-all-have-a-gift/ that was inspired after my mother questioned whether or not she possessed any gifts or talents, this message was refreshing. I wasn’t aware of this scripture then and couldn’t wait to share it with her after coming across it in the book.
Since we find ourselves fashioned into all these excellently formed and marvelously functioning parts in Christ's Body, let's just go ahead and be what we were made to be Romans 12:5 (Msg) What you are is God's gift to you, What you do with yourself is your gift to God (Danish proverb)
