Considering Your Talents

As a writer, I've often found myself watching detective shows and finding the concept of murder fascinating. I've also found myself incredibly devoted to characters surprisingly quickly, and not being able to focus when I should be doing my homework. It wasn't until the other day -- Friday night, actually -- when I realized something.

I'd just mentioned to my mum that I believed that one of the reasons I stress so much is because I consider the endless possibilities. My example was that I was informing one of my best friends how I always feel sick before a plane ride because all the different scenarios I can think of that could possibly go wrong are on repeat in my mind. My friend laughed and said, "Really? That's strange -- I don't find myself stressing before a plane ride at all."

When I told my mum about my conversation with my friend over a month after it happened, she answered, "Well, maybe you think of all the things that could go wrong because you're a writer."

That was when it struck me.

You see, there have been times in the past when I've wondered if I was actually meant to be a writer. What if my main talent was something else, something different?

But then, I realized, Wow. Maybe God really does want me to be a writer. If He built me this way, maybe there's a reason for it.

1 Peter 4:10 states, As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace. This means that God has given us our talents for a reason -- to use them for Him. My point? If you've got a knack for singing, sing for God. If you're particularly good at painting, paint scenes from the Bible, or scenes of people being baptized. If you're a good writer, write for God. God has given you a gift, and there are nearly endless possibilities for you to use it for Him!

Here Comes School... Again

Well, school is just a few measly weeks away, which means that, unfortunately, there is likely to be a lot less blogging on *A Sapphire Chamber*. ...But who knows? It is, of course, a strong possibility that, with school coming around, there will be more free time to write than there ever was, this summer (Seeing that there are so many vacations and travel plans within this season.).

I will be starting high school this semester, and though I will not be changing schools, there are still a few down-ers about it. It is, after all, but four years away from college. No, no, not frightening, at all.

There are, still, a few upsides to becoming a freshman. For example, it'll officially be autumn! Only forty-six days and thirteen hours left! Which means that it's only a matter of weeks until warm mittens, fluffy scarves, and comfy blankets. (I'll ignore the fact that San Diego only has one season -- summer.)

So, until the next time, my dear bloggers -- farewell. :)

<3 always,

Olivia K. R. Fisher
