How To Discover Your God-Given Gifts And Follow Your Path


Making changes in life means doing something new: taking time to reflect on who you are, what you want to know, where you want to go in life, and staying on that path are keys to getting where you want to go.

It’s not hard to know what you want.  What do you want when you have time to yourself, when you think: I wish I could … 

What do you wish you could do?  Go on a hike?  Write a book?  Spend more time with your child?  What is your heart longing to do when you have time to feel it, think it and imagine it?

I ask God.  I ask; Lord Jesus, what is it I am to do in this world?  What would you have me do?  What was I cut out for?  He answers.

He tells me in my heart; “your talents lay here”, and “you are a gifted speaker, more knowledgeable areas that could really help people”.  That is what I find when I ask the Lord, and wait upon Him.

Today I heard a woman speaking on a video she made about how making the investment in yourself is the most valuable way to spend time.  By learning, never giving up on yourself.  By not wanting to quit.  

Know your calling and spend time reflecting on it.  God will help you get on the path that is right for you but you must listen.  Let Him tell you in your heart and mind.  Mentally be prepared for what He wants you to do.  It may surprise you that he thinks you are gifted enough to move into a direction you never thought of but will serve people.

Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, He is washing yours if you let Him.  Let him know you are wanting answers, he will respond kindly, knowing you completely, knowing your abilities and talents, and knowing how to fulfill your hearts and minds.

Serving others is a gift, a reward in itself.  Get with Jesus more and ask him what to do.

He will respond.
