I was getting ready to post another blog, but I did not know what to write about.
Had been busy working every day from early morning to late night and had been having little time to work on my creative writing because of more important at the time other tasks that I needed to take care of.
However, I showed up! I sat down and I started to write.
I started with telling the Lord about my lack of ideas for my blog post and asked Him for His guidance according to Psalm 32:8, knowing that He always answers when it is in His interest what I am doing. Then suddenly He reminded me by giving me thoughts about what He said to me in 2013.
He said: Use the talents that I have given you. Writing is one of talents that I have given you. Use it! Use it for My glory! You please Me when you write! Heaven rejoice when you Reidun are writing!
This is what I heard the Lord talk to me when I sat outside enjoying the sunshine one afternoon in August 2013, while having a cup of tea and taking a thirty-minute rest from my work that day.
With those thoughts I got, I understood that my blog today was going to be about how He had told me to use my skills, gifts and talents. I understood it was His plan for me to post that blog for to possible inspire someone that might need a little push in that direction.
Perhaps that someone is you?
Maybe you have a dream about doing what you love to do, but have not been able to take that next step for to do what you have always wanted. Perhaps you have not done this because you are unsure if it will support you with the income you and your family desire to have. On the other hand, things might have stopped you from pursuing your longtime dream.
Seeing many that are losing their jobs, and seeing many that cannot get a new job as soon as they need to and want to, I am getting more and more passionate about to help and inspire people around the world to find their own God-given talents, their own “Acres of Diamonds” the skills, gifts and talents that they have inside themselves. Talents that is very valuable and that comes with little or no cost for them to develop and start to use.
I believe that by using your God-given talent, you will be able to turn a problem or situation into a very good opportunity for yourself that might give you much more joy than you can think about and possible also give you all the income that you have dreamed about. I believe that is possible if you follow what God has called you to do. However, you might need some help, some consulting, some inspiring you, to get where you want to be.
You might be in the same situation as I, just having a different calling.
At the same time as I started to write this blog, I received an email from a Platform University friend of mine, Kathleen Ann Thompson with the podcast title “How you can transform your day.” I decided to finish my blog before I read it and listen to her podcast, but I wanted to add this in the end of my blog because I felt the title spoke to my heart today.
Here I were, not having any idea what to write today. However, I showed up, I started to write. I got the message that I should write about, not before I started, but after I started to write.
This transformed my day!
I have found my calling, my God-given talent. My own “Acres of Diamond” are in my writing.
