"Whatever I am now, it is all because God poured out his special favor on me—and not without results. For I have worked harder than any of the other apostles; yet it is not I but God who was working through me by His grace."1 Corinthians 15:10 (NLT)
May this forever be my theme song! Everything that I am, and everything that I have is all because of God. My talents are not my own. But I act like they are, and even act like I can give Him a 'special gift'. But rather, everything I do is His from the start, whether I acknowledge it or not. I would not be able to hold a pencil if it was not for Him—let alone draw with one! My skill belongs to Him—and I pray that it will serve ONLY Him for my entire life.
Thank you Lord, for the gifts you have given me—I love and appreciate them. Help me not to take them for granted, or forget that all skill comes from you and has nothing to do with me or what I do
