Something for Everyone

“For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.”  Matthew 25.19

Recently I met an Olympic medalist. He was excited and motivated about the Olympic competition. I was surprised to learn that combining the summer and winter Olympics that there are more than 400 Olympic events each requiring a different set of skills. His comment was there is something for everyone.

The heights of Olympic athletes ranges from 4 feet to 7 feet, each size adaptable to their respective sport. The man I met received a bronze medal in the ice-skating competition. He was thrilled even be on the Olympic team, much less to be a medalist.

He grew up with a background most unlikely to ever be Olympics skater. But he had a dream and his message was simply that everyone should live their dreams and use their God-given gifts to the fullest extent possible.

God has given each of us a multitude of gifts with a simple message of use them or lose them. God has given each of us all the gifts we need to carry out the mission that he uniquely created us to do here on earth.

A large part of our life is discovering the gifts that God has given us, and then using them to the utmost of our ability. If our eyes and our minds are not open discovering those gifts, which sometimes are right under our nose, we will pass them by and never be able to live our dreams and the dreams God has created us to enjoy and experience as we life.

Take time today to seek God’s presence and asked him what gifts he has given you and how He wants you to use them for his glory. Live life to the fullest. Use your gifts. Get ready for God to give you more than you could ever imagine. Live your dreams and get ready for new and more joyful ride through the journey of life.
