Good morning healing team!
I hope you are doing well.
I want to share one verse from Proverbs 17-8 from the message translation.
“Receiving a gift is like getting a rare gemstone; anyway you look at it, you see beauty refracted”.
I would like to encourage you from this verse today.
Everyone has received a gift, whether you liked it or not. But, if you receive a gift from God, it should be anyway you look at it, you see beauty refracted.
A day to live today is a gift from Him. Your day will be beautiful and will be. How about yesterday? Did you have a beautiful day?
You might or not.
In order to see something we need a light. In the dark room, you cannot see anything right? so when we SEE something, we are seeing refraction of the light. Without a light, we are all blind.
John 8:12 Jesus said “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. ” (NIV)
My point here is that we need to see a gift from God under His lighting. Not any lights. The only lighting.
I should not but I think some has a better gift than I do. I think all of us do that. Grass looks greener on the other side right?
Is that mean that we are seeing others under his light instead of I, you, put under his light?
A gift you have, it could be singing, athletics, caring for others, business skills or whatever, put it and out yourself under His light and see how it refract.
It will refract beautifully.
When you do not see a beauty immediately, do not stress out. Remember your eyes need to get adjusted to The light.
These two pastors talks great about use of gift. Multiply your gift!
Have a beautiful day!
