I Wish I Could Do That

Have you ever thought about all the things you wish you could do? I wish I could sing. I wish I had artistic talent. I wish I knew how to build and create. There are so many skills that other people possess that I dream about being mine.

If I could do those things, I would be such a blessing to the world. I would make an impact for God. I would use my gift and talent to help people, support the Church and make the name of Jesus known.

If I could do that, then I would never stop doing it. I would use my gifts and abilities in so many positive ways. There would be no limit to all the good I could do if I just had your talent.

Then suddenly I realize that someone might be saying the same thing about my life. They may look at me and say, “I wish I had your skill. You do that so well.”

Our natural tendency is to admire the talents of others while ignoring the gifts with which we have been endowed.

There is this special moment in life when you quit wishing for the capabilities other people possess and start appreciating your own potential. You can take what God has given you and use it for so much good.

I believe you have the exact skill set to accomplish the good that God wants you to do. He made you unique, and there are jobs that only you can complete. Today is a good day to stop wishing and start doing.
