“Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings; He will not stand before unknown men.” (Proverbs 22:29)
What have you got in your hand?
“Then Moses answered and said, “But suppose they will not believe me or listen to my voice; suppose they say, ‘The Lord has not appeared to you.’” So the Lord said to him, “What is that in your hand?” He said, “A rod.”” (Exodus 4:1-2)
Moses was prepared for work he did not know he was ready for. But God knew he was ready.
An expert is simply someone who has been through the fire, has come out singed but alive, and smarter than s/he was before.
That’s my personal definition. Most of us then, are experts on pain, fear, anxiety, hope, faith, and ourselves. I am an expert on Me.
One thing I’ve learned is not to save an idea or a ‘pearl’ for a time in the future. If it has come to mind, then it’s needed today.
Share. Another pearl will come when it’s needed. You can trust that. As you use this pearl – share it, use it for yourself, or give it as an encouragement to another, from its use will spring more pearls.
Use what you have today, and allow your imagination, creativity, faith and skills to develop new insights that will be useful tomorrow.
Spend wisely but generously. Generosity will be returned to you.
Ready: What idea have you been sitting on, waiting to use it at the perfect moment?
Set: Take that invention, story-line or wise saying that you have and start to build upon it.
Go: Find a platform and share your creativity. Allow others to enjoy and benefit from your experience, wisdom or discovery. Trust another new idea will come your way, just when you need it. In the meantime, you’ll develop relationships and experiences from using what you have today.
Knowing what you have is the beginning of breakthrough. Allow it to happen by using what you have.
