My middle daughter has the most beautiful curls. They are one of my most favorite qualities about her. Not only because they are perfect corkscrew curls, but because they really do define her. She is adorable, bouncy, petite, beautiful, unique, and a spitfire!
I tell her all the time how much I love her curls. Of course she wishes she had straight hair like her older sister. I pray she grows into her curls and learns to love them like we all do. Her curls are a gift! She has many other gifts that as a parent I can see in her, that I treasure in her, and that I hope to draw out of her and grow in her. She has a heart of gold and is tender toward the Lord and toward those she loves. She is caring, sensitive, and confident in who she is.
God has given each of us unique gifts, abilities, attitudes, and strengths.
Do we accept them as His well-loved children? Do we use these gifts? Do we grow them or do we fight them? Do we wish we had other gifts? Just as I adore the curls and all the gifts I see in my daughter, our Father adores the way He has made us and longs for us to embrace our calling in the Kingdom.
We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. ~ Romans 12:6-8
As your coach I will help you discover your gifts and strengths. We can use various assessments, inventories, and conversations to dig into who God made you and how you can best be growing and using what you have been given.
