Praise for talents that come easy

I've just discovered that I'm more of a story teller than a novelist. Being a story teller comes easy to me. That worries me. I don't think very highly of it. I suppose we believe that nothing good can come that easily. Perhaps that is why we don't really trust or fully enjoy the loving grace of God.

The world tells us that some things are too good to be true. But God is never too good to be true. And the gospel is called the Good News -- the "too-good-to-be-believed" news.

I'm going to honor a talent that came easily to me. I suppose I could go on and list all the stuff we take for granted or try to avoid because they come easily... but I won't. You yourself know what lovely thing, person, place, or talent in your life you may be belittling. Praise ye the Lord.

You most certainly should honor the talent that came easily to you. I'd say that a gift like story telling was given to share with the world, and you do a wonderful job of it :) So keep honoring!
