Many of us look forward to growing up. But when we get there, we wish we were kids again with not a care in the world. My life is not where I imagined it would be at my nearly 32 years of age. I can paint a woe is me, "thanks for noticin'" Eeyore picture or I can paint a positive enthusiastic Tigger "that is with a T-I-double guh- ER" picture of my life right now. It is all dependent upon my perspective and attitude. Many days I feel like Eeyore rather than Tigger. I feel like I am merely walking through life and existing rather than living life with purpose and impact. It is time for me to take responsibility. I am to be held accountable for my choices. According to the wise Noah Webster, I am responsible-accountable to God to use the talents that He gave me.
I was able to use my talent of teaching today. I am not sure I completely honored God due to lack of preparation. I volunteered to substitute for a Sunday School class, but I failed to prepare till the very last minute. I also got a tap on the shoulder this morning saying I had Children's Church. Again, no preparation. I thank God for the talent He gives me to teach even on the fly, but I know that God wants my best. My best is to be prepared and passionate about what He wants me to teach. I need to have a Tigger mindset that just oozes with confidence and enthusiasm in my own special way. Also, whatever I don't like about my life, I have the ability to change. It is time to make those positive choices that will get me closer to where I want to be. I need to choose to be prompt, prepared, and passionate in anything I do.
"Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God." ~1 Corinthians 10:31
