Because I’ve been a Christian ( born-again spirit-filled by definition) since 1973 and I sought God on what my spiritual gifts were early on, I thought I would take the test ( I’ve taken others in Churches, etc) just to see how it stacks up.

The gift of faith being high on the list was no surprise, this I both knew and have had developed thoughout my time as a Christian. I wrote a post on the topic here.

Evangelism is something I have had both inner goads and decided efforts at developing, although I am not what I consider a standard evangelist, and even on the normal level I think I fall short. I can exhort, but that is not my forte… I would say I don’t like it at times… and in the spirtual gift of discernment I am not gifted, I have only the occasional manifestation that I think comes to believers in the normal way. Perhaps I just haven’t been open to its development. don’t know.

As tests go in this sort of thing I would not rate it more than average. I think spiritual gifts are folded into the larger framework of the type of person that God has made you. I think this because God has plans and an order for each person long before they know of those things.

In the development of using the gift of faith I have developed giving, and this was further underscored by the fact that my father was configured to be a giver, but had the negative aspects because he had not submitted himself to God.

Everyone is fitted for expression of God’s gifts, spiritual and practical, not everyone places themselves in His hands to find the full and true expression possible.

What an exciting thing when God’s gift is opened within us, though. Worth the discovery.

Sister Nail Gun of Enlightenment

This is for ♥Greg♥ , my favorite attiude problem.

I may be late, but eventually I nail it.
(but I really like this one: The Pepper Spray of Compassion)
And what is his alias? Sibling Cattle Prod of Courteous Debate.

You can get yours.

Unitarian isn’t your cup o’tea? You must be more the aggressive type, how about a Pirate name?

My pirate name is:

Iron Anne Cash

A pirate’s life isn’t easy; it takes a tough person. That’s okay with you, though, since you’re a tough person. You’re musical, and you’ve got a certain style if not flair. You’ll do just fine. Arr!

this has been my exercise in jumping the shark for today….

A New Word, and other distractions

I was reading over at Magnificent Octopus and learned a word that is new to me, not just fuzzy. I don’t come across that many- which may say more of my reading material than anything else. Anyway, the word was ‘autodidact’ which when I found out what it meant, caused me to exclaim in my inner voice: that’s me!
n : a person who is self-taught

Although in a sense none of us are really autodidact anymore than we are truly auto-anything. But that is splitting hairs.

I will get back to some of the other material that I had been discussing, but decided to break from it a bit. I could explain why, but am not quite up to that. INSTEAD…how about another one of those online tests 🙂
