Gifts of the Holy Spirit
First off, I wanted to say that it was a joy to meet and get to know all of you this past weekend. I know God has touched our hearts in more ways than one.
I talked to someone this past weekend who told me that they weren't sure what their gift/gifts were, and nobody ever told them. After they received their affirmation letters, they realized what they were. Their heart was healed. Their faith was restored. Their love for God grew. I believe that happened to all of us in one way or another.
I know that many of us are still on this emotional high and we came back in the real world where someone or something will try to bring you back down. Always remember to keep the Spirit of God in you and pass along that special gift/gifts. When problems arise and things get tough, keep your head up high and your heart open to God. Things will get easier. God does amazing things and will continue to do so.
Your brother in Christ,
"So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing."
–1 Thessalonians 5:11
