I love learning. I’m a curious, and maybe, adventurous person. And this is the reason why I acquired lots of skills. I define myself as a musician, photographer, entrepreneur, and writer. I still wanted to add skills on my list if time would allow. I love exploring.
We usually hear or say that our talent is God-given. I strongly believe this. There is nothing in this world that didn’t came from God. And I believe that we should give back or offer our talent, time, knowledge, and strength to God. We should let God use us for His Glory and His ministry.
This is the reason why I started this blog; to provide information to those who seek and be an inspiration to fellow Christians.
I admit, as a human, I have the desire to change the world and leave a lasting legacy under my name. But being a regular person, I don’t have the capacity to do this. But of course, if God willing, I can be a King David, or another Joseph the dreamer, who, from being a nobody, has lead a nation and become one of the greatest men of God and leaders in the world, by God’s power.
Through this simple blog, I’m not expecting those things to happen. I don’t want this blog to lift my name and my talent, but instead, I want people to glorify God. I want people to read and learn everything about God, not about me. I want them to be inspired and grateful for what God has given them, not for how I spend my time and talent on this blog.
As long as God allows, I will continue to share His words and blessings through this blog, even if it doesn’t become as big as I wanted to be. One soul that will be saved through this blog is worthy enough to give my time, effort, knowledge, and money. These things are too small compare to the worth (and joy) of one soul that will spend its eternity in heaven.
How about you? Do you have skills and talents that you want to offer to God? Let us know!
