Every person possesses gifts, talents and abilities. I wise woman I met briefly in a casual conversation said to me that many fail at this thing called life because they are out of alignment with their purpose and fail to set the right priorities. We waste our abilities, talents and gifts by not keeping our priorities straight and remaining laser focused on finding our purpose and then walking in it. This made sense to me. Of course I will lose my way if I am focusing on what is in it for me instead of what God wants me to do for him and his Kingdom.
