If God asked you right now, “What have you done with the gift I have given you? Who have you helped?” Would you be able to answer? Are you still trying to figure out what to do with your God-given gift? Do you even know what it is? (We all have one, by the way.) Author Barbara Bryant is here to help with Gifted Inspirations: An Inspirational Treasury Of Writings To Transform Your Thinking About Your Gift, a motivational new guide for using your gift to bring glory to God and happiness to those around you.
Some gifts are obvious, while others are subtle and unseen. Comparison is unnecessary; what’s important, Bryant asserts, is doing the best we can with what we’ve been given. To help readers understand how unique everyone’s gifts are – akin to a snowflake or fingerprint – Gifted Inspirations identifies 15 distinct gifts, outlining their characteristics and offering tips for applying these positive attributes to everyday life.
Charity, faith, healing, leadership, wisdom, forgiveness and peace are some of the gifts outlined in Gifted Inspirations, and suggested Scripture readings at the end of each chapter correspond with that section’s discussion. Bryant’s tone is buoyant and her advice practical. When discussing the gift of charity, her enthusiasm is infectious:
If we are in a position to help, we should do what we can to donate to our local food banks and pantries, support homeless shelters, and even give to Christian organizations that feed the hungry. We can ask God to show us individual families we can love and pray for, perhaps even some in our own churches or neighborhoods. By sharing God’s love we can make an impact that will last for eternity. What could you do to help the hurting? How can you offer healing and assistance to those who are hurting, and make a difference? By using your gift.
Spend just a few minutes each day with Gifted Inspirations and learn how to share what you have to offer with the world as you live a life of mindful glory to God.
