Hello people! Sorry I haven’t been posting as much lately, but My life has become pretty hectic. As of a few months ago I am pursuing my Masters degree in Information Systems and Computer Analytics, in short heavy computers stuff so needless to say my time has been tight. As my fans you will be pleased to know that I am working on a lot of new music as well with the likes of Blueprint and many other producers so here at the tail end of 2015 and 2016 you will see some new releases coming. So now to the topic at hand: Our Gifts.
For the last month or so this topic has been surfacing in many of the conversations that I have had with my wife along with other family and friends and it has lead me to a few conclusions: as people we either don’t know our gifts (and in some instances don’t care to know them) or don’t appreciate the gifts that we have. These conclusions have been an eyeopener to me as to why many people, including myself, at times lack happiness and/or progression in our lives.
First, lets talk about what a gift is. By definition a Gift is something willingly given to someone without payment; A natural ability or talent. In our society we look at musicians, artists, entertainers and athletes as the ones having the gifts we just get to enjoy watching or listening to them use the gifts. Many times we don’t look at oration, compassion, serving, or teaching as much, but these too are gifts among many others that God, Allah, the universe or (insert name of higher power here) gives us. Human beings spend their lives searching for purpose and in most instances that purpose lies in the gifts that we have been given. When you finally discover that gift(s) and you willingly operate in it your purpose can be uncovered. Once you uncover and walk in purpose then happiness and contentment usually is not far behind.
Discovering your gift(s) is a lot easier than people think. It is basically what are you really good at? What is it in life that you do well that takes little effort? If you look at your life and single out those things or that thing that is usually what you are gifted in. If you haven’t found that thing you need to expand your horizons and do more in your life because we all have gifts. If you limit your self in life you may never find it. Now this does not mean that mastery of the gifts will not take work. Even the best athletes have to practice and the best singers still have voice coaches. Also, notice I didn’t ask what is it you enjoy doing because sometimes a gift is not always something you enjoy. The thing is even if you don’t enjoy operating in your gift, if you do it and do it willingly it can open the doors to your desires.
There are those who know what their gifts are but don’t like them so they try to ignore them or disregard them. The problem with that is you can never really escape it. There will always be things in you life that remind you of what you know you are supposed to be doing. Or your lack of happiness and comfort in life will remind you of what your supposed to be doing whether it is a gift that provides financial gain or emotional peace it will always be around. There will always pop up an opportunity to use it when you deny your self those opportunities you deny your self fulfillment and progression. This is what I mean by standing in the way of your gifts. When you allow your lack of want or fear of the unknown to stop you you can loose out on a blessing. You can loose out on your peace. You can loose out on fulfilling your purpose.
We as human beings have free will so it is up to us on if we dive in to our gifts or not, but you shouldn’t have to force someone to prosper. Prosperity is what we all want in life and I don’t mean only financial prosperity. We want prosperity in every aspect of out lives, but we are standing in the way of it and don’t even know it (or maybe we do). My advice is to talk to your creator, (for me that would be God), and ask for guidance. Ask for a revelation of what your gifts are and how to operate in them. When you get your answer make sure that you walk in your gifts with a willing heart and watch your life change. Watch the desires of you life come to past. Watch peace wash over you and those that you come in contact with. There is a calm that surrounds those that walk in their gifts and are fulfilling their purpose in life. Why can’t that calm also surround you?
Thanks for listening.
