I hope you are having a great week. I am thankful it's getting towards the end of the week. I can't wait to see Mark, Avery and my daughter. In many way this has been a long week. I am ready to be in my own home and Avery suggested we have a tea party Saturday.
It's been on my mind lately about God's gifts. I don't know if you think about this, but I wonder if I am doing what He would have me to do and if I am truly using gifts that He has given me.
My friend, Strider, shared that he enjoys his Message bible. I have several versions and I had ordered a large print Message bible so I pulled it out again and I am finding I do really love it. I guess I have always gravitated back to NIV, but for some reason the Message is really speaking to me.
In Ephesians 4:4 it says, "You were all called to travel on the same road and in the same direction, so stay together, both outwardly and inwardly. ....everything you are and think and do is permeated with Oneness. But that doesn't mean you should all look and speak and act the same. Out of the generosity of Christ, each of us is given his own gift." I am going to be in prayer about my gifts. I know my love for others and of course, my love for the Lord is more important than a gift, but since it's in the Word, I guess I would like to know.
I love my bloggy friends and you always seem to encourage me when I am having a difficult time. Thank you for your support!
