Hi there precious one,
What gifts are you giving this year?
I know Christmas has passed us and most of our minds are filled with thoughts of how to make the most of the new year. With 14 days into 2013, many have already made a slip or two from those lofty New Year’s resolution. There is absolutely nothing wrong with aiming to be or to do better but let us not get so wrapped up in resolving to be different that we fail to be our true selves.
Before my eyes cracked opened this morning, I heard the whisperer speak…Give the gift of you. As I attempt to shake the sleep from my eyes, I hear Him repeat again give the world the gift being who you are. Ahh, such simple sounding words aren’t they? But I can not tell you how often I have felt that me wasn’t quite enough. My words not weighty enough. My thoughts not profound enough. My skills not quite good enough. What I have to offer too small to be enough to work with yet being the loving Father that He is, He speaks to my heart and reminds me that I only have one true gift to give and so do you.
With sleepy eyes and slow fingers, I grasp my pen to inscribe His words in my journal for I know that I will need them another day. As quick as the words came, they refuse to fade away. They harass me until I not only pen them for myself but send them out into the world as a gift for others to receive.
Three Keys to Giving the Gift of You
1. Be fully present right where you are.
2. Stop seeking to conform to the conventions of others
3. Seek to revel your truest self to others. Don’t send the representative. Send who you really are.
Until next time…
