Using Our Skills For the Lord, 07NOV – #1296


As I dusted off my sewing machine yesterday, found I have pillowcases to sew and a whole winter’s worth of projects waiting. So, I went back to an online teaching that mentioned SEWING.. Tabitha being raised from the dead…. Acts 9:19-43 

In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (in Greek her name is Dorcas); she was always doing good and helping the poor. About that time she became sick and died, and her body was washed and placed in an upstairs room. Lydda was near Joppa; so when the disciples heard that Peter was in Lydda, they sent two men to him and urged him, “Please come at once!” Peter went with them, and when he arrived he was taken upstairs to the room. All the widows stood around him, crying and showing him the robes and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them. Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, “Tabitha, get up.” She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up. 41 He took her by the hand and helped her to her feet. Then he called for the believers, especially the widows, and presented her to them alive. This became known all over Joppa, and many people believed in the Lord. 

At the 59 minute mark of that link above, in the last 15 minutes of this Bible study, Pastor describes Peter attending to her coming back to life. He calls out how we, like Tabitha, can be blessings for Him for others by using our skills – and at 1hr 5 min, and 1hr 15min marks, specifically talks about a sewing ministry and helping others. It is also a good teaching about praying, and remembering gratefulness to Jesus.

I have been blessed with skills, when I use them, I feel blessed. It’s no accident that He gives us skills. I prayed on my knees this morning and thanked Him for my blessings. I heard Him speak to my soul and He said: “BE BLESSED”.

Be Blessed.
