Success is what we do with what we have



The kids and I just finished reading The Door in the Wall by Marguerite de Angeli. What a wonderful story about overcoming obstacles and learning not to make excuses. I highly recommend this book.

The quote above really hit home. I am reminded that God has given us everything we need to serve Him. It is our responsibility to recognize the blessings, talents and gifts he has so graciously given to each of us and then to use them to the best of our ability. We shouldn’t put off service while waiting to receive this gift or that talent. We can’t let an ailment or disability hold us back. No, it is our job to do the best with what we have now.

Next time you feel incompetent or ill-equipped, remember that God has given you exactly what you need to do His work.
