What’s Under Your Bushel?

A bushel (4 pecks or 8 gallons)

Hide it under a bushel, NO!
I’m gonna let it shine …

I hope those are familiar song lyrics.  If not, look it up

I was pondering why I sometimes feel stalled out in life — as if I am somehow being less effective than I could be.  I started considering what some of my spiritual gifts are, when I receive the most praise from others, and when I feel like I am at my best.

The answer: when all three of those come together.

  1. When I am using the talents that are my strongest spiritual gifts. 
  2. When I receive positive feedback.
  3. When I feel like I am at my best, and doing what I am the most capable of.

Not sure what your spiritual gifts are?  Here is a good tool to find out.  Chances are, they are the things people praise you on, or you feel energized when you are doing.  Do you find yourself doing these things most of the time, or just wishing that you were?

Don’t hide your gifts under a bushel.  Let them shine.  You will be glad you did.
