Something Wonderful Happens

“I know that when I pray, something  wonderful happens. Not just to the

When I Stand Before God

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, “I used everything you gave me.” (Erma Bombeck)

Use your God-given talents to help serve others and make the world a better place for everyone. According to Scripture:

We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. (Romans 12: 6-8, NIV)
