Uniquely Gifted

If you want to see God’s handiwork on display, you will find it at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, especially in the spring when the tulips grace the grassy fields for several weeks. You may have noticed a few of these Arboretum photos of their Dallas Blooms tulip exhibition in my recent posts, because, yes, I had to go see them. 

Just as God has beautifully created elegant flowers in bountiful colors and designs, He has beautifully created each one of us. Some of us are tall, some of us are short. We might have brown hair, or we might have blonde or auburn hair. Our eyes could be blue, but they just might be brown.

Our eyes might sparkle at the smallest hint of joy or we may easily spill a tear when emotions tug at our heart. God made us and He made us each unique.

He also gave us gifts and talents to use and enjoy. 

We might be a Master Gardener and can grow beautiful tulips like the ones above. We might be an artist who can paint on canvas what the eyes have seen, or a photographer who can use their camera to catch just the right amazing picture.

Please join me at God-sized Dreams today where I write about how we are all gifted by God, because He fearfully and wonderfully made each one of us.

To every child of God today…
For a little while
Just let it soak in and savor
Who you are in Him
You are His child

He wants a relationship with you
Moment to moment
Every moment

For a little while
Spoil yourself by sitting in His presence
Pour out your heart
Place your hand in His
Know He is with you

For a little while
Just be His child
Just be the one He formed and fearfully and wonderfully made
Be the unique person He made you to be
Be the one He wants to draw near to Him

For a little while
Indulge yourself
Just let it soak in and savor
Who you are in Him

1 John 3:1
Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!
