Why are you holding your gifts back? It’s time to reveal who you are. You are connected to the most powerful source. You have gifts that give. We all know that social media is the world’s largest spotlight. Everyone is showing their celebrations. Virtually everything we do, say and post is under a microscope. The only thing standing between you and an unfiltered view of your life is your privacy settings.
When you keep your gifts locked away from the world, it’s like you’re closing the curtains on your life instead of embracing your uniqueness in front of others. In this blog post, we will explain why hiding your gifts limits you. It’s also bad for your Spiritual Growth as well as self-esteem. If you have been holding back from showing off your faith to friends and family out of fear or because you don’t know how to express it, read on!
Powerful source of connection
The main reason to show off your faith is self-esteem, self-confidence, and personal growth. What do you think will happen if everyone sees how great you are? Will they stop judging you? Will they give you the respect you deserve? If you’re holding back, you’re sending the message that you’re not as important as you could be. In fact, you might even be secretly thinking that because you aren’t showing off your faith. You question your value towards others. If that’s the case, then you might want to stop and think about why you’re holding back. Once you do your self-check and understand your motivation, you’ll be better equipped to share your faith and gifts with confidence and respect.
Sharing our gifts and talents
The importance of self-esteem and personal growth cannot be overstated because despite someone’s response you keep on being yourself. The development of self-esteem and personal growth leads to humility. For us to grow, we cannot be too concerned with what others think or say. Our confidence is what makes us who we are, and we must continue to exude it. In the end, it’s about being yourself. Being your best self and wishing others well is all you can do. It will then be possible for everything else to fall into place and you can share your gifts and talents without reserve.
Stop holding your gifts back
Having confidence in yourself can also help you grow spiritually. If you feel that you’re not as valuable as others, you might be tempted to settle for mediocrity. Or worse, you might even feel like you’re not worth having God’s amazing purpose and plan for your life. But when you show off your faith, you open yourself up to a new level of spiritual growth. Instead of just trying to defend yourself and explain your beliefs, you’re forced to be open and honest. You’re forced to be vulnerable and real. And because you’re in front of a crowd instead of just one person (like when you’re on social media), you can be truly honest.
You can let others see the real you – your flaws, your insecurities, your strengths, and your intentions. When you show off your faith, you’re making room for spiritual growth. You’re opening up to the idea that you’re important and valuable. And you’re exposing your intentions to the world – so you can receive a lot of positive feedback as well as some constructive criticism. Not expressing yourself leads to fear. Then everything can start to get out of control. We all have a belief system and things we have faith in. Whatever you have faith in is your prerogative. So, just be YOU!
When you hide your gifts, you’re also hurting your self-esteem and personal growth. Remember, there’s a lot more to you. And as you start to show off your faith and get comfortable with your gifts the sky can be the limit. Remember that you don’t have to be perfect. You don’t need to know everything or do everything perfectly. You just have to be you. And the more you share your faith and gifts, the better you’ll get at it and the more genuine and authentic you will be.
