I once started a series where I wrote something about my self that coordinated with each letter of the alphabet.
This post was brought to you by the letter S.
S is for Hospitality
Some say you're born and bred with it.
Others say its a skill you learn.
As for me? I love it. I think its part practiced skill, part natural love .
A lot of things have been changing inside me lately, thanks to my growing relationship with the my Father through His Son, Jesus Christ.
One of those things is a growing sense of hospitality. A desire to love through taking care of people- feeding them, talking to them, making them feel at home.
Reading Bread and Wine started to ferment these feelings and ideas.
At our bonfire last weekend, someone commented to me that I always have plenty of good food around when we have company. Wheels turned a little further down the track.
Today, a godly woman at work remarked that she sees me as being in the hospitality ministry.
And then it clicked. That's who I want to be. Who I feel God is leading me to be.
I am shy. When I am in my element, I am more open. More likely to share the Word of God or voice my opinion.
I love feeding people, sharing and laughing with them.
My new dream is to be the one who invites the newcomer (at work, church etc) over for dinner. The one who holds old groups of friends together by hosting gatherings
God has blessed me greatly and I can't wait to share them!
What talent, skills and desires has God blessed you with?
