Daily Nugget

    Thursday, July 5th, 2012.

Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill

A thirty-eight-year-old scrubwoman would go to the movies and sigh, “If only I had her looks.” She would listen to a singer and moan, “If only I had her voice.” Then one day someone gave her a copy of the book, The Magic of Believing. She stopped comparing herself with actresses and singers. She stopped crying about what she didn’t have and started concentrating on what she did have. She took inventory of herself and remembered that in high school she had a reputation for being the funniest girl around. She began to turn her liabilities into assets. A few years ago, Phyllis Diller made over $1 million in one year. She wasn’t good-looking and she had a scratchy voice, but she could make people laugh.

Each of us has unique gifts from God. We also each have our own limitations, yet God takes what we have, and if we let Him, He makes it useable for His and for our benefit.  The writer of Psalms 139:14 says, “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”

God, help us to make our abilities available to You. Ame.
