“On Where to Put Our Talents

The way to abundance is to surrender our abilities and talents, asking that they be used by God to help heal the world.

Too many people feel that they have talent but simply don’t know where to put it. We’re not raised in a society that asks, “What are your gifts, and how can they make the world a more beautiful place?”

We’re usually asked something more like this: “What will you do to make a living?” This knocks us out of our natural rhythm, because the soul simply doesn’t think that way.

There is no more natural proclivity than to serve love. Something very powerful happens when we pray, “Dear God, please use me.” Making ourselves available to the universe for its loving purposes, we are taken up on our offer immediately.”

Excerpt From: Williamson, Marianne. “A Year of Miracles.”
