Use It or Lose It by Valerie Cheers Brown

It goes the same for this world we live in: Avoid negative media for they are the great destroyers of self-confidence and self-esteem.  Surround yourself with positive mentors who bring the best out of you. – Valerie Cheers Brown

“Our great God made everybody with remarkable capacities and abilities to serve our siblings and sisters in Christ. At times we’re not by any means mindful of the gifts that we’re given by God until we keep running into various battles in life.”

Have you ever noticed how sometimes men and/or women think we should buy their book to learn how to everything from: being happy, how to get more people to follow you, how to love yourself, how to do this, how to do that, etc. ?

Shouldn’t we go to God before we go to anything or anybody when we need help?

If we don’t feel good, we must go to God for healing, not man’s word!

Do we not realize that God made us all unique and we all are not only different, but we can learn from these differences, more importantly from these differences can help us better know ourselves?

You think maybe the reason the world is the way it is because too many people just don’t care to think or tend to think the same  or some may just follow the tule whether they believe or not?

Do you think we should follow rules even if we feel them to be injust?

Did God make us all to follow and abide unjust laws?

Being Unique:

We are all made one of a kind and unique. God is the potter and we are the clay. He made all of us impeccable having our own uniqueness. A few individuals have blue eyes, brown eyes, a few individuals can do this, a few individuals can do this, a few individuals can do that, a few individuals are left handed and a few are right handed and the even more unique ones can write with both hands. You were made for a reason and most importantly a purpose.

God has an arrangement for everybody and we are all each individual from the group of Christ. You are a magnum opus or masterpiece as you develop more as a Christian you will really perceive how extraordinary and one of a kind God made you.

Do we know that God created us all with very different talents?

1. Psalm 139:13-14 You alone created my inner being. You knitted me together inside my mother. I will give thanks to You because I have been so amazingly and miraculously made. Your works are miraculous, and my soul is fully aware of this.

2. 1 Peter 2:9 However, you are chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, people who belong to God. You were chosen to tell about the excellent qualities of God, who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

3. Psalm 119:73-74 You made me; you created me. Now give me the sense to follow your commands. May all who fear you find in me a cause for joy, for I have put my hope in your word.

4. Isaiah 64:8 Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.

Be wise and put them into use to help others what God gives to us. We are all part of the body of Christ. Stop letting God’s gifts to you catch dust.

Use it or lose it! He gave them to you for a reason.

How are you using your talents to glorify God?
