I know I am guilty of asking God why I did not get a particular gift or talent. I was made aware through this study that by asking that question and believing that He did not write MY story exactly right, that I was shutting down my heart and believing a lie. My story is being written by the ultimate author and He created me perfectly with all I need to serve and worship Him. I just need to have a surrendered heart and trust Him to use the talents and abilities He chose for me. I want to live out my story with joy and gladness and serve Him all my days!
Jesus was always angry with the Pharisees throughout the Bible because they were always trying to be far more than they were. They pretended to be perfect and far above everyone else. If you find yourself here, as I have, then just repent of this wrong attitude and ask God to forgive you for your shut down heart and recognize that you will never be enough, so quit striving and just live each day in complete surrender and trust God's heart for you. His story for you is just perfect. It doesn't need a "re-write". Enjoy walking each day through your own personal story. It will be a great ride!
