Smile on me, your servant; teach me the right way to live.

"Woe to him who quarrels with his Maker,to him who is but a potsherd among the potsherds on the ground.
Does the clay say to the potter,'What are you making?'
Does your work say,'He has no hands'?

Woe to him who says to his father,'What have you begotten?'
or to his mother,'What have you brought to birth?'

"This is what the LORD says-the Holy One of Israel, and its Maker:
Concerning things to come,do you question me about my children,or give me orders about the work of my hands?

It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it.
My own hands stretched out the heavens;I marshaled their starry hosts.

I will raise up Cyrus[Hebrew:him] in my righteousness:
I will make all his ways straight.
He will rebuild my city and set my exiles free,
but not for a price or reward,says the LORD Almighty."


Just share with the thought of Rick Warren

You don't bring glory or pleasure to God by hiding your abilities or by trying to be someone else. You only bring him enjoyment by being you. Anytime you reject any part of yourself, you are rejecting God's wisdom and sovereignty in creating you.

God's says,"You have no right to argue with your Creator. You are merely a clay pot shaped by a potter. The clay doesn't ask, 'Why did you make me this way?'"

You may be gifted at mechanics or mathematics or music or a thousand other skills. All these abilities can bring a smile to God's face. The Bible says,"He has shaped each person in turn; now he watches everything we do."
