Are gifts for seasons?

The message Sunday was on I Cor. 12, one of my pet subjects:spiritual gifts for the benefit of the body.  The sermon also covered another of my pet theories: how our strengths become our weaknesses.

Anyhow, I seem to have had the gift of words/writing, but I can’t write anymore. Emails, cards, and letters, yes, but nothing formal or inspirational. The muses haven’t visited me for ever so long, and I wonder why. Maybe the gift was for a season. What is next? I don’t know.

I hugely admire “A Slice of Infinity” from Ravi Zacharias’s ministry (the link is at the right). They, especially Jill Caratinni, have an incredible, gifted, intelligent way with words and deep concepts. But these days, I can’t even read them; the amazing words and concepts don’t even register. Maybe it’s because of being on prescription drugs and the resulting fuzzy brain.  But it makes it feel more impossible than ever that I will be able to communicate in high-brow ways. But that’s ok. Gifts are for the body’s benefit. Maybe the body will benefit best if I read/write simple stuff. So I’m off to email now!

  1. Hi Anita,
    You don’t know me but currently I am reading your book that I recieved as a gift for my birthday and saw you had a website. I am sorry to hear that you recently were laid up but I hope that you are recovering nicely! I just wanted to let you know that I have been muchly enjoying your book and it’s hard for me not to look ahead and keep reading when I pick it up yet I am taking my time so that I can think about it also as it has lots of things that are appliable to my life. Thanks for the blessing and May God continue to bless you and your life and whatever season he has in store for you next!
