Do Your Creative Best

Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life. Galatians 6:3-4 The Message

Give your assignment everything you’ve got, but do it in a humble spirit. You are the only you there is and God has a specific assignment that only you can do. Until you know what it is, just keep learning, leaning and growing into your place. It may happen while you’re young or when you’re old, but be prepared to step into it when the doors begin to open. Don’t be afraid for the times or seasons we live in. God has promised to go before you and make all those crooked places straight.

When I was younger, I used to compare myself to others. When they would sing, their voices were so perfect and pure. Never having had lessons myself, I always felt the lesser or a bit embarrassed when asked to sing a solo. But one day, that perfect person came to me and said something that blew me away.

I asked for a sabbatical from my spot on the worship team I had held for over 10 years so that I could give my girls the much needed attention of ‘mom’ at that time. She came to me after service and said, “Sandy, I’ve been asked to take your place on the worship team and was wondering if you would pray for me. I want the kind of anointing that you carry when you worship.” That blew me away! It was then that I learned we each carry something special, we just have to find it and walk in it.

Maybe that’s why these verse resounded in my spirit as I decided to read through Galatians 6 this week. My job–to do the creative best I can with my own life–Lord, let that be enough.
