The next morning we talked about spiritual gifts. I have done a test before but couldn't remember what it had said. After looking down the list I knew which ones I would like to have and guess what. I didn't have them. Doesn't mercy, evangelism, or faith sound super spiritual? You have to be close with God to have these right??? These were some of my lowest scores (rats). It did not surprise me on the ones that I scored the highest ...giving, hospitality, and administration. I think maybe God is preparing me for something.
I knew without a doubt when I resigned at the church two years ago that I was suppose to do that. I had always said that I wanted to use my talents in a christian organization so I was so confused when God made it so evident that I was not suppose to be there. Now looking back God's plan was greater. He knew that he was fixing to give us Ti. It was not a coincidence that two weeks after they found my replacement we found out about our gift of Ti. Now looking back at some of the things I went through in the next year His plan was the best. I said all of this to say that I think God is fixing to put me back in the work force. I am not for sure when or where but I think he is preparing my heart for that. On the sheet below where we listed our gifts we were suppose to list our passions. Without a second thought I put down church administration. As I wrote that, I was thinking to myself, Bekah what????? Do you really think God can do that? Can God provide a way for you to be able to use the spiritual gifts that He has given you in a Christian organization? I seem to put God in such a small box. I really have no clue what His plan is but I am sure he has one.
I was telling Tim about how I thought God is up to something and these were his words "so are you trying to warn me that you are fixing to go to work and make half the money that you usually charge" I just laughed and said probably.
I am really just writing this all down so that I can look back and see how God worked it out, I am sure that this doesn't interest most of the few readers that I have.
Here are a few pics of the weekend.
