Spiritual Photo Challenge 4

Photo: SPIRITUAL PHOTO CHALLENGE: 5 AUgust 2012
Yesterday the kiddos and I made our very first tye-dyed clothing!  This was the result.  SO COOL!!!!  We had fun and these are the kinds of clothes we LOVE wearing!!!
When you look at the shirt you see many different colors obviously.  If the shirt were just one color, the effect of the shirt would be lost and certainly not as dynamic as it is.  the same goes for the body of Christ.  ONE BODY... MANY PARTS.  This is a great reminder for me.  I AM NOT super woman.  I can NOT do it all (although I try.. I fail miserably).  God  did not bless me with certain gifts.  I can not cook for one!  I try to be creative but I am such a health nut raw fruits and veggies are good enough for me and the kids love simple turkey sandwiches and such.  Spending hours in the kitchen and for clean up is not something I enjoy.  To some it is a passion and to others not so much.  that is OK.  i can not compare myself to those that make great gourmet stuff... that is just not my gift!   But I can be very creative in other areas like art, muisic, etc.  Some men/women are amazing at organizing.... some are great at child discipline and raising, some are fabulous at mechanics and fixing stuff up around the house, others are not but are good at teaching.  God like diversity... He made us ALL unique.  So todays challenge is embrace who God made you to be.  So what if you are not LIKE someone else or good at what he/she is good at.  It is ALL good!!!  Don't compare yourself, use your gifts to bless someone today.  We are a colorful bunch..... and that makes life SO fun!!!

Prayer: Lord help us each embrace who you have made us to be. If some have not yet discovered thier Spiritual gifts please help them. Give them people who will help affirm the gifts in their life. I pray that you would make each one aware of opportunities to use and develop their gifts for some kindgom purpose. Help each reader to be aware of the gifts of others around them, so they may in some way encourage and fan the flames in the life of another.
