Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through a prophetic message when the body of elders laid their hands on you.
1 Timothy 4:14 (NIV)
I heard a preacher say one time that God has already given you the tools for success.  You were born with them.  The gift of success is already in you, in your hands.  The tools for success are your hands.
I learned to sew at an early age and it was a gift, but I have neglected it lately.
I know some versions of the Bible have “gifts” as “spiritual gifts” and others have it as “grace”.  But when I read this verse to me it means my gift of sewing, which is spiritual.
I made the above dress for a sweet girl in Canada.  Today I’m making some denim pants for my son.
I’m still working on my etsy shop.  It’s been a slow process but I’m still working at it and you will be pleasantly surprised.
Today and for awhile I will be taking care of my gift.  Do not neglect your gift today.  In case you are wondering what you gift is just remember the time in your life that you were the happiest.  What were you doing at that moment?
