I was sitting in a Christmas play called "The Gift" this past December when I heard a character say something that gave me an "Ah hah!" moment. The character said: "God's gift to you is potential. Your gift to God is what you do with that potential." How profound for me that statement was, because I realized that my potential is my purpose, and my purpose is my gift to God - but only when I move in it.
Whatever you call the Divine Being, know that He has blessed you with potential, purpose, a gift. 2007 is the year of your completion...whatever that may be for you. Believe in your gift; work on your gift; and share your gift. But more importantly, write it down on a piece of paper and carry it with you in your wallet or purse, and when you have a moment when you feel as if the world is coming down on you - and those moments do come, because that is life - take it out and repeat it to yourself until you feel calm enough to put it away again and go on with your day.
Remember, life isn't easy. If it were, we wouldn't have the chance to show God, the Divine Being, what we can do with his gift to us.
