People from all over the world visit Yosemite on a regular basis. It is not unusual to hear 5 or 6 different languages being spoken as you walk along the trails and paths in the valley. I think the variety of life in Yosemite is a testimony to the creativeness of our God. He loves our unique characteristics and personalities and He has gifted us each differently, one from another. But, it is that uniqueness that makes His creation so beautiful!
“God has given each of you a gift from His great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God Himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to Him forever and ever! Amen” (I Peter 4:10-11).
Not everyone can do everything well. But, when we come together and use the individual gifts that He has given us, we can accomplish more through Him than we ever thought possible! When we bring our talents and skills together and work as one, we are the Body of Christ.
“All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it” (I Corinthians 12:27).
I am so thankful to be part of that Body. All that we do for the Lord, whether using a humble or great gift is a true blessing and pleases God, especially when we work as one for the One who so beautifully sculpted us.
Living for Him,
Or, if you choose, you may leave a comment on my post to tell of the beauty you have found in His hands.
