If we want everything to be 'Gravy' all the time; we need to be versatile. We must be more than one dimensional. Amen. Like Deon Sanders... He loved playing Sports. So he used two of his gifts (athleticism and dialog) to channel, drive and promote his love for being involved and active in sports. He loved more than one sport. So, he was dedicated to being as great an athlete in track as he was in baseball and football. Those three sports take place Spring, Summer and Fall. Then, they overlap each other for preparation for the other sports. Other wise, he'd have down seasons in sports. So like Deon Sanders, let's learn to channel, drive and promote our heavenly gift or gifts in more than one area. And like him, let's not waist our time to just be 'good'; let's work to be the best.
To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born,
And a time to die; A time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; A time to break down..
Oh! Don't force anything. Just stay ready for the Lord to put you in the game.
Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.
