Each of us has a unique function on the earth. I do not serve the world by withholding my gifts in the name of modesty.
Remembering I am no more or less special than anyone else, I am free to soar with the wings God has given me.
Until I do, my place in the universe is left unfilled. My love, my abilities, my skills are mine alone, and I was born to extend them as a light unto darkened places. Today, in every moment, may I be the embodiment of the light of the world.
You have given me such special gifts,
And yet I block them when I deny Your love.
Today may I remember
The holy purpose You have given me,
That I might find my talents
And be blessed thereby.
