If this meme touches you, I’d be delighted if you share it with friends.
Thanks a bunch, Lisa!
Recently I came across boxes filled with our newspaper and magazine articles that had been published through the years. I also found a box with three years of cassette tapes from my 1990’s radio show.
I didn’t know what to do. If I threw them away, I couldn’t prove my accomplishments. But honestly, who is going to care about a bunch of old newspapers and tapes when I’m gone? I finally realized that the value was in the people who were helped at the time. I ended up tossing them – just keeping a few as souvenirs.
So what was I thinking – that I’d hand Jesus a bunch of tapes after I die as proof of my worth? On some level – yes! This little exercise showed me how far I still have to go in appropriating God’s love to my life. A challenging lesson!
Where is your struggle?

God gives each of us a special gift – often more than one. It could be an unusual talent or a deep spiritual awareness – just something that brings us joy. But do we really believe it? I know I struggled for years thinking I had no special gifts. Maybe God just forgot me.
Lately I’ve realized that I do have a special gift from Jesus that gives me great joy. I have perfect pitch – which means that I can recognize and name any musical tone instantly. So all of the notes are my special friends and I love meeting each of them in the timeless music of the classics.
So what is your gift – the one that brings you delight? You may say you don’t have one. Or maybe you have a gift but somehow feel it’s not worthy. Thank again. There is something in the uniqueness of you that is special. It makes you smile – and God too!
What’s your special gift?
