Day 12 Tenacious Life-shaping Thankfulnes

Day 12
I sat down to type this on my Nook Tablet, and I noticed that my phone was about to die so I had to stop and pull out my charger and attach it to the extension cord plugged into the power strip. As I walked back to the table I got a notification that one of my friends had just played in one of our Words With Friends games, which was followed by a notification that I just got a text from my daughter.

I sat back down at the table and smiled. While it may look like today’s thankatuity is for technology, which I am grateful for, sitting here I am awash in thanks that God wired us to be curious and creative and tenacious.

In a former job, I taught a class which had as its premise that there is genius in each of us. Now that’s not to say that we can expect to be budding Edisons or Einsteins, Jordans or Gretzkys, Jobs or Gates, but in your sphere of influence you are the expert on you. And God says he put you right where he wants you to make the difference and impact that only you can make.

So how will you change and shape your world for good and God?
