Gifts

I Timothy 4:14-15

‘Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through a prophetic message when the body of elders laid their hands on you.  Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them so that everyone may see your progress.  Watch your life and doctrine closely.  Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.’

I have written a 365-Daily Devotional entitled Bread Box for the Broken.  It was inspired over 20 years ago by a gift from my Grandmother. One Thanksgiving she gave all of us a small recipe box with the letters “Blessing Box” glued to the outside lid, Psalm 68:19

glued inside the lid, and a supply of 3 x 5 cards to WRITE DOWN YOUR BLESSINGS! (Her emphasis). Thus began the long journey of writing down 365 prayers for 365 Scriptures that spoke to me through the years. Now complete, these scriptural prayers are intended to illustrate how Biblical truths are timeless, applicable to you and I today.

With her gift, she inspired me to write; with His presence, the Lord inspired my humble prayers of devotion; with His Holy Spirit he has impressed upon me to share these gifts of prayer with others.  I will diligently continue writing as He gives me inspiration, and pray it accomplishes His purpose in the readers.
