Something weird happened to me when I was at my synod council meeting this past Saturday.
One of the synod ministers was talking about networking; trying to connect people’s gifts and talents with others. It is a very good idea and am glad we have someone on the synod staff whose job is to do that.
But that’s not the weird thing.
As she was showing us the list of people she has in the data base I was scanning for people I knew and what was listed as their “talent”. For the most part I was not surprised with what I saw.
Then my name came up. (by the way…this is where the “weird thing” begins)
After my name I saw “writing”. I have never considering “writing” a talent or gift. Sure…I have been blogging for 5 1/2 years or so but that doesn’t mean I am a gifted writer. But don’t get me wrong…I wasn’t upset with what I saw, I was just surprised. (This is not the “weird thing” yet…that was just the beginning of the “weird thing” story)
The weird thing that happened was that after I saw “writing”by my name I got inspired. You see…I hadn’t written a blog post since Dec. 12. With the Christmas season and an increased emphasis in communicating through Facebook and Twitter, I just kind of drifted away from blogging, but on Sunday I wrote.
And today I wrote…
…and now I feel inspired to write some more. (But don’t worry ramble on and on here)
It is funny/weird how the Holy Spirit works. And it WAS the Holy Spirit at work that day; kicking me in the butt. I guess there is more ministry to do done through my so-called “gift” of writing. Weird…huh?
Praise be to God!
