Claim Your Gift

Christ has given each of us special abilities.
                                —Ephesians 4:7

What is your gift? You do have one, you know: “Christ has given each of us special abilities—whatever he wants us to have out of his rich storehouse of gifts” (Eph 4:7).

Don’t overlook the “each of us” in that sentence—not some of us, or a few of us, but each of us.

Here’s a prayer by Lois Cheney that you might want to pray:

For what I am that I ought not to be,
Forgive me.
For what I am not that I ought to be,
Forgive me.

Be with my mouth in what it speaks.
Be with my hands in what they do.
Be with my mind in what it thinks.
Be with my heart in what it feels.

Work in me
through me
for me
in spite of me.

Your gift: Find it. Claim it. Own it.
