Automobliles are strange and different in that certain ones are designed for
certain purposes. Some are designed for off road travel. Some are designed
for luxery with DVD players and televisions. Others are designed to transport
people like cabs or buses. There is a vehicle for virtually every purpose imaginable.
Even going to the moon. Depending on what one wants to do, the correct vehicle
has to be used. It is important that each vehicle is used for whatever purpose its
designed for.

People are also like vehicles in that we are strange and different. Each of us
with our differences are designed for a certain purpose by God. Some designed
to sing, to teach, to lead and to write. For us to do what God has designed us to
do, we must be equipped for it When God designed us for His will, He equipped
us for it. Time, experiences, attitudes, and free will often hide our abilities. Even
though God designs us for His will, we can prove to be defective. Instead of recalling
us, God just keeps after us until we give in.

One thing we can be sure of is while we have free wills, we can never go against
our design. Belonging to God and being His children.

For those of us who are gifted with the written word, we like others have been
designed to reveal God's mysteries in a unique way to the world. By capturing
people's attention with our thoughts and our ideas. People are influenced by
what we write.Our inspiration helps them along their own path as they discover
their design.

You remind me to use this gift with great reverence to the One who bestowed it on me. Thank you!

I like your statement in the first sentence of the last paragraph. Thought provoking and true.

never go against
our design - that is the source of much frustation in our lives and much joy when we finally figure that out!
