I struggle with my own insecurities. Is what I am doing good enough, worthy enough, “gifty” enough? When my mind and heart turns to these questions, I start to feel these little heart flutters—but not the good kind—when I see the work of others. I want to cheer them on, I want to be in the front row. Instead, I place myself in the trenches. I tear myself down and I tear them down with me. I don’t want that! You don’t want that either, right?
We each have a gift. No two gifts are the same. You know, like snowflakes? I think we automatically assume that there is not enough room for us all. But, friends, God created each of us with a purpose and he placed us on this big-big-big world to thrive in that purpose! There is room at his table for each one of us and our gifts. I repeat, there is room.
Let’s not let the filter of social media cloud our hearts and overcast our gifts. Let’s do this together. Every one of us has a gift that is valuable to the kingdom. Your gift needs my gift and my gift needs your gift. We cannot further the kingdom all on our own.
