The other day, after a night of worship where my brother played, me, being me, came up to him and asked him if I could jam with him. Him, being him, said: hmmmm we are pretty much down for tonight but what about you playing with us tomorrow? My obvious response was: hmmm NO thanks, I don't play in front of people.
As I was going to bed, I couldn't make up my mind about playing worship the next morning. I didn't really want to do it but at the same time I felt like kind of a hypocrite, challenging people about using their gifts and not being afraid. So I was like: Sarvia, are you gonna be a chicken and not play and learn or are you gonna take this opportunity and be brave (as your name means) and play?
The next morning arrived, and I decided to be there to practice for worship. So, I ended up playing! Even though I am not the best guitar player ever, at all, I had a great time worshiping my creator with the gifts that He has given me.
This may not seem like a big thing to you, but seriously, if we think about it, how many times a day do we have opportunities to serve God with the gifts He's given us and we don't use them? Even just because we feel lazy, we don't feel like doing it, or we're not the best at it, we've missed that chance to bring glory to God and worship Him on a daily basis.
It doesn't matter what kind of gifts you've got, He's the one who has given it to you to use it for His glory!!
