The right gift at the right time can open up new opportunities
and gains access to influential people.

Proverbs 18:16
The Voice (VOICE)

      Despite anything that you might believe about yourself, you have talent.  I've heard some say that they have no special talents or skills.  Untrue!  God has blessed each of you with one or more special gifts.

       Maybe you can't dance, play a musical instrument, or sing.  That doesn't mean you don't have a talent.  Some people might be good at sports and physical activities while others might be better with writing or math.  Talent can encompass many many things.

        One person might be good with children which makes them a good candidate for childcare, teaching, or parenting.  Another might have extraordinary abilities with cooking and other skills in the kitchen.  Maybe you're a good driver or mechanic.   There are many skills that a lot of people don't think of as talent.

        Before you start believing that you have no talent, think about the things that you do well and the things you enjoy doing.  Those are some of your talents.  Chances are you have a number of talents.   Put them to good use.  Look for a career that puts those skills to work or volunteer your skills in service to God at your church or local charity.

         Don't hide your talents.  Be glad for the special gifts with which God has blessed you.  He gave those to you so you could share them with others, give you self worth, and to glorify Him.  Don't waste those resources.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
1 Peter 4:10
New International Version (NIV)
