Life and every gift we've been given in it is much bigger than us, than our ego or our fear. There are people who notice our gifts while we're playing around. They PRAY for what we take for granted. They BEG God for the gifts we hide.
I had to ask myself, "When are you going to quit playing with this thing? When are you going to really, truly, all-the-way accept that you're gifted and that these gifts are bigger than you? When are you going to DO something? When are you going to truly utilize what you've been given? When?" Nothing less than a life and gifts that are evidence of God is acceptable. Nothing less than a voice that comforts, heals, and speaks life. Nothing less.
Selfish to selfless.
