“I LOVE MUSIC!”
I breathe it in, growing up as a kid. I could even remember how out – of – tune I was, how many times I didn’t passed Choir Auditions at school and how many “you’re so adorable” and not “wow, you have a great voice” comments I have received! – But those didn’t stopped me from developing my core gift!
“Come on now Eric! Sing me a Smokey Mountain song and I will give you a dollar!”, My Aunt said to me, as she waves a dollar in her hand. Of course to a kid a dollar is everything, or a pack of M & M’s or Hershey’s Kisses or whichever my auntie uses as a reward to unleash my singing prowess! – It worked!
Nickle to Bronze to Silver to Gold. – “THIS IS MY CORE GIFT”
I have reached my full potential and really enjoyed the heck out of it! But as you know, as people grow up, their priorities change, they pursue careers and paths that have made them easily brush off their core gifts.
“Nothing is ever too late”
As I have read from a book, “Your abilities are the natural talents you were born with …..Today God still bestows these abilities and thousands of others, so people can serve him ….. All of our abilities come from God.” (Source:Rick Warren: A Purpose Driven Life.)
Seeing daylight, you know that regardless of your career, there is no excuse in using your “spiritual gifts” for His Glory.

When I think about how much I’m loving you
No limitations, no set of regimented rules
I’m amazed how much this love has touched my life
And the commitment that we share is a welcome sacrifice
This must be, sweet fatal attraction
My life-long date with destiny
Love this strong, it just brings out the passion
I never knew was here in me
(Just Because by Anita Baker)
