God Given Skill

Incredible! God gives us skills to perform the tasks he chooses us for. It’s easy to see God at work when you see others working with an eye toward excellence in their task. It is time for me to give thanks to the Father for having personally chosen me, filled me with the Spirit and given me the skills and know-how to do all He has requested of me. I pray I will be diligent in all I do and others will see God’s hand in the quality of work completed.

Maybe next year, my son and his daughter will have Opa take their picture at the dance.  🙂

“God spoke to Moses: See what I’ve done; I’ve personally chosen Bezalel …. I’ve filled him with the Spirit of God, giving him skill and know-how and expertise in every kind of craft to create designs and work in gold, silver, and bronze; to cut and set gemstones; to carve wood—he’s an all-around craftsman”.

#1 Listen and You Will Hear

Cora and I had drifted from being actively engaged at the local church. The army, child raising and living in Germany had made church inconvenient and not a priority.

Our son was a few years old when he said to Cora, ‘Did you hear what God said?’. Cora wanted to know what he was talking about. Jeff said, ‘If you would listen, you would hear.’ Cora was awe struck. God had spoken a poignant message through our Son. How deep with meaning and timeless in message.
