You are ‘The Gift’
At this seasonal time of the year that
includes gift giving, it is important to stop and reflect upon one
of the greatest gifts of all – you.
Yes, that’s right, you!
your most precious gift. Despite the trials, the tribulations, the
ups and the downs - your life right now, at this moment, is a gift.
are a gift that you can open up and explore - or you can choose to
keep yourself wrapped up.
You are a gift that you can thank God
for; “Thank you God for me,” – or you can take yourself for granted.
You are a
gift that you can learn from and grow with - or you can choose to
stay the same.
You are a gift that you can spend time
with - or you choose to ignore.
Regardless of how you approach the
perfect gift, let’s not forget that you are ‘the gift’
Have you ever
stopped and thanked God for you, your life, your experiences, your
growth, and your wisdom? Let’s all do so now.
It is easy to
complain, to be unhappy, to be stressed, and to wish things were
different. But, if things were different, would you still be you?

Let’s put that aside for the moment, and not forget that you are

in the dictionary, you will find, “…a present, the act of giving, a
natural ability, talent.” The gift of your individuality certainly

and that which you have developed during your life. This makes you
unique, special, and one of a kind. Maybe part of the gift that you
are includes the definition of present – since a gift, is a present.
One definition of present is, “Occurring now, being at hand, and
When you live in the present moment
instead of the past or the future – you give yourself a powerful
gift. The 'present' is experiencing your self in the present. After
all, the only things that are real and true are God’s love and the
So as you contemplate the gift that you
represent to yourself, be 'a present' and 'a gift' to yourself, by
living and being in the present.
I am present. I am gift. I am precious
gift. I honor myself. Thank you God for me!
God Bless You.
