The other day I was temping for 5 days in the office of my former college. When I’m there it reminds me of the years I was there getting my pre college, college and post secondary education. How I started off in one direction, the many changes that happened along the way and now I’m coming back to temp. I’ve completed my post secondary education there in 2011 and wasn’t planning to come back. Ha! When I think about it I’ve come back many times and not in a way that I ever thought I would.
One of the ladies that work there came over to the area where I was working and started talking with me about my writing. I had mentioned to her what I was currently doing with my writing and then said ‘It’s a start.’ She replied ‘It’s more than start. Some people are not writing at all.’ After she said that it clicked. Writing on my blog and for a magazine is more than a start.
How many times we think of what we are doing less than what it really is? When we step out in faith and use our gifts and talents to glorify God that’s indeed more than a start! What’s happening and what we are doing may not be what is yet to come, but we have to learn to embrace, appreciate and enjoy where we are now.
See the gifts and treasures of the present! Give thanks and trust that the tests are not for you to already know and be at a place of arrival, but for you to let the Savior work in and through with the only special touch He can. More than a start!
