I work for a company that serves children and adults with mild to severe MR. I had someone call me last night and ask me if I would like to serve on the Board of Directors for an organization here in Gastonia. I was honored but if I can be honest with you, I doubted my knowledge, and my abilities. The company I work for stands on this statment “Believe in your Abilities” . We have several consumers who make jewelery, paint amazing paintings, greet, make crafts you name it and they give it all they have. I have a passion for this population and I also know that my spiritual gift is encouragement and thats what I do daily! It comes natural for me. But believing in myself is something I have a hard time with. I am reminded of this…
Psalm 139 13 For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb.14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,16 your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.17 How precious to [b] me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
God has gifted YOU and will use you! Believe in your abilities!! ..I look to people all the time and say if I could only meet them they will believe in UNBOUND and take a chance on us, or I might say if only I could do this or that to be like so and so…then I came across this! We were ALL created in the image of a creative God and we reflect our Creator when we let our imaginations give birth to new ideas!
Lets CHANGE THE WORLD:)
