Well, well, well (deep subject)
So, Ruler is one of the gifts that I was told I might be...
Really, I guess until I get back into community/serving and see how my "less broken" self actually functions, it's still hard to tell.
As with all the gifts, there are traits that I've participated in and some traits that I feel I relate to and always a couple of just "NO" ones.
Like... ruler "Does not ask “why” questions."
hummmm... why would anyone not ask why? I may not ask it to your face out of respect but God hears that word a lot... "but WHY did I feel/act/do that?", "why would that happen that way?" - "buy WHY??? " and how... "why? why?why? ... I wanna know!" ... or sometimes just "WHAT?????" ... when I think why is none of my business. Sometimes I stuff it and don't ask because I'm afraid to know... but the why was still there.
I guess there are situations where "why" isn't necessary and I wouldn't ask... probably because I already think I know the answer...
Anyway, I have a plan to sit down, once we are finished, and lay out all these list side by side and compare to see which ones have the most "no's" and "yes's" and "I have no clues" ...
I know God knows, I know He has a plan for when, where and how He will show me. I'm just grateful for this opportunity to learn about all the gifts.
I start back teaching this week, I'm going to try asking God what gifts some of them have and then look for the traits that match. The hard part is that I'm at two schools, have over ~450+ kids and I only see the kids once a week so getting to know them takes awhile. ... but some gifts stand out more than others so I should be able to figure some of them out.
Thanks Lois for continuing to march forward dragging this "I DON'T KNOW" person along. I really appreciate it!
