Standing in a circle at a church in the mountains. The pastor is praying over each of the young people who have come on the retreat. Somehow, it's probably a God thing, the pastor knows and prays over each of them uniquely. He speaks of how each has a gift from God that he or she can use to bring God glory. He stops at her and prays. It is not a formulaic prayer, but a prayer from the heart. Each word reaches her soul. He prays that she will know her gift and use it for the glory of God. Just maybe she has something to offer and it gives her the best feeling of her life.
Riding home she is more talkative. The experience in the mountains has changed her. She doesn't have to wait to be used by God. She is gifted now. God has given her a gift, maybe more than one. Yes, she is young, but that should not stop her from hearing from God and being used to bless others. Her life is far from perfect and school is still a hassle, but there is hope and that is always a good thing. She has a purpose and the means to fulfill that purpose and that is far more than she ever realized that she had.
