Little Seeds

I believe God sows 'seeds' of talent in each and everyone of us. In some , these seeds are nourished and flourish. In some they lie dormant and in some they surface but due to various reasons they are stunted. Maybe lack of attention, care or whatever.

With care attention and use, our talents grow and combined with being open and receptive to Divine Inspiration these little seeds of talent can yield mighty fruit!

As the wonderful Julia Cameron says 'Our talents are gifts from God, using them is our gift back to God'

Sometimes we don't feel good enough or maybe we feel our talents are just too enjoyable to be 'worthy enough' That we are meant to work hard, not enjoy ourselves. These are the times when we remind ourselves that God has given different talents and abilities to different people for His own reasons. Ours is not to question God's decision, but to make the most of what He has given us.
