A while back, I listened to a podcast that referred to the Parable of the Talents – and how they were invested and multiplied. I believe God has given me a lot of “talents”, and I just want to use them to make something to give back to Him. I want to be used by Him for his own glory. I believe God has given me a vision for the future, and I have to be intentional and do my part to get there and take my steps of obedience.
In that same podcast episode, the statement was made about that God makes trees. We, as humans, use our brains that He gave us and we take those trees and make tables, and boats, and desks. Often, we are praying God to give us a table we need, when He’s already given us a tree. We just have to take it and make something of it. Make it happen. Turn the tree into the table that we need.
So there are needs that our family has, especially to accomplish this vision that God has given us. Tables, if you will. A list of different things that we need for God to provide. This is me, taking the “trees” He’s already given me, and turning them into the “tables“, and “boats“, and “desks” that we need. It’s me taking the talents He’s given me and using them, doing my part, if you will.
Basically – it’s me creating a job for myself, doing what I love to do. Planning. While I realize that not everyone will be a planner to the extent that I am, I believe that I can help, encourage, and hopefully inspire others to be intentional with their lives and plan it purposfully, instead of just letting life happen. It’s not all about planners, notebooks, and pens – but about being more purposeful and strategic and intentional in the planning and preparation of life and all of it’s aspects.
