"Life is not a dress rehearsal. Stop practicing what you're going to do and just go do it. In one bold stroke you can transform today." - Marilyn Grey
I love this quote because as women, sometimes by trying to be modest or humble, we mistakenly think that means hiding our gifts! Our gifts are given to us by God, to be used & celebrated. Use them up, wear them out, bless others with them.
Just imagine if the artist of this beautiful painting (of my moms house) decided to listen to her insecurities (thinking she isn't "perfectly" talented) choosing NOT to paint. This beautiful painting (of a dinner party with my moms special friends) would not have been painted of a gorgeous Christmas dinner, celebrating friendship and blessings of friends! What a shame that would have been!
Is there something God put in your heart that you are afraid of trying? God doesn't care if you do it perfectly, just that you do it for Him. Paint for Him, Sing for Him, Start a prayer group for Him. Boldy choose to bless others with your talent!
Don't hide your gift! Use it! Let me know what you do!
