Serving The World With Your Talents Matters!

An Encouragement to Steward Your Gifts Well

This is a guest post written by my good friend, Madelyn Littles. Her and another friend of mine, Lisa Crumbley, have recently released a new book that energized my soul, my love for God and reminded me that no matter where we are in our life journey, He always has a purpose for us.  I invite you to see a little bit behind the scenes of the collaborative book-writing effort entitled, Coincidence or God-Incidence? You Decide. Find out more about the book here. Also, follow this dream team on Twitter, Facebook and their web site.

What does it mean to steward the talents that God has given us? Is it enough to acknowledge that we have them and move on? Probably not. God has given us these talents for a reason – He has a purpose to be accomplished.

If someone asked me what my talents are, I would rattle off a list of the things that I do well and that I enjoy doing. These are hobbies, and perhaps even gifts, but are they really my God-given talents? Sometimes the talents that God gives us aren’t immediately evident.

Book Review

Coincidence or God-Incidence? You Decide!

I really enjoyed Coincidence or God-incidence.

Coincidence or God-Incidence?

I am a believer in Jesus Christ and the book encouraged me to trust in Him.  The God stories inside reminded me about all of the good things God does for His people. It helped me to get my mind off of myself and see beyond my “understanding”. I am grateful to the people who have submitted their stories to the book.

The stories are gut-level honest, transparent and real.  There is no doubt that if someone would read this book and remain open to the words on the pages they would see that God is who He says He is in the Bible. Get ready to be inspired to trust God with the purpose He has created you for.

Through the writing and experiences of the authors and the contributors, God displays the good He wants to perform in us, for us and through us all.

I’ve decided — it’s a God-incidence!

It’s your turn to decide — you can preorder the book at coincidencethebook.com.
