1 Corinthians 12:4-7 Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.
Renowned poet Maya Angelou came to writing late in life. She became one of the greatest writers of all time, not out of luck or happenstance but because she worked that muscle, that gift. She had a story to give to the world, and she honored the call to write.
MOVING FORWARD: Is there a craft, hobby, or sport you are curious about but fear you may not be good at it? This might be the time to work that muscle and see how brilliant and brave you are with the gifts God will activate in you.
