I’ve been OFF the clock, OFF my game, OFF my talent, just OFF for so long! I haven’t sewn a thing in almost six months!
I’ve been lazy, demotivated and just straight out angry at myself for not doing anything. One would think if I’m not doing anything and I’m angry then I’ll pick myself up and get (please excuse my frankness for lack of a better word) shit done but NOPE! I just stayed doing nothing.
So one day I’m at home looking back at my life and realizing how much I’ve changed. I was never a lazy one, I was never the sit back and wait type and I was definitely never the ‘silver-spoon’ girl.
I began a conversation with God and I set out to see if I could get my life on track…here’s how it went:
Me: Hey God, umm, I don’t know what’s been happening to me but you do, can you help me please? I’m so confused!
Him: My child I gave you a talent, please use it.
Me: You know what? I’ll sell shoes!! (Yes, I completely ignored the Man 😞)
Excited as ever, I went out in search of a bunch of heels I know ladies would wear…bought them and started advertising. Everything went really well up until I just still couldn’t see my way! No matter how hard I tried to stay focused I couldn’t. So now I have a few pairs remaining and not getting anyone to take them off my hands. Frustrated and feeling like a failure, I went back to God and we had another conversation:
Me: Hey God what’s going on? You good? Cause I’m not 🙁 I’m frustrated and I feel like I’m failing at everything! Help me nah please?
Him: My child I gave you a talent, please use it!
Me: *does tons of research* *bounces up Loc Jewelry* Aye! I’ll do this! ✨ (Completely ignored the Man again! 😩)
This time I didn’t go splurge on stuff to make the loc jewelry. I just kept getting the urge to change my mind. It’s like God was saying “Child are you deaf?! I’m showing you the way! Walk in it!” So I waited.
You might be wondering how I knew exactly what God was saying? Well let me tell you, my Husband and I got invited to a really close friends’ wedding and I needed a dress to wear so I went online and ordered one but the dress never showed, it got lost in transit.
I contacted the seller, got my money back and proceeded to order another one when I realized that it was too close to the date of the wedding to do so. One of my good friends suggested that I make a dress. When she said that I got a little scared, told her I haven’t made anything in so long I didn’t know how it would’ve came out and she pushed me over and over to make this dress till I finally cracked.
When I sat down behind that sewing machine I felt this calm, soothing spirit over me and I closed my eyes and said “Your will be done Lord”.
Moral of my testimony, USE YOUR TALENTS! Make a profit! Live well! In Jesus’ name.
My motivation now is the thought of when I have to answer to God about what I’ve done with the talent He entrusted to me, He doesn’t say, “You wicked and lazy servant. Cast the unprofitable servant into the darkness!”
I hope and pray that whoever is reading this figures out their talent or if you have already then use it to the Honour and Glory of Christ Jesus! I’m rooting for ya! ^_^
Oh! Here’s one with the huzzy cause he’ll feel sad if I were to leave him out. Hehe 😋 😘
