The Gift Inside of Me

I invite you to share this children’s story I wrote with the little ones in your life.

God placed a special gift on the inside of me.
What must I do to stir it up for all the world to see?

Should I spin around in circles till I’m dizzy in my head?
Or lie down on the floor and roll across my room instead?

God placed a special gift on the inside of me.
What must I do to stir it up for all the world to see?

Should I drink a fizzy berry soda through a curvy crazy straw?
Or eat a long and sour pickle that puckers up my jaw?

God placed a special gift on the inside of me.
What must I do to stir it up for all the world to see?

Should I try to tickle my own feet with my fuzzy purple horse?
Or tell myself a funny joke to laugh until I snort?

God placed a special gift on the inside of me.
What must I do to stir it up for all the world to see?

Should I get an x-ray at the doctor from eyes to little toes?
Or ask my Grammy what to do? She always seems to know.

God placed a special gift on the inside of me.
What must I do to stir it up for all the world to see?

Should I scrunch my face and think real hard until my brain is tired?
Or strive to read a giant book with words meant to inspire?

God placed a special gift on the inside of me.
What must I do to stir it up for all the world to see?

I do not have to spin and roll and eat a pickle, too.
I simply have to ask myself, “What do I love to do?”

For what I love to do the most is my special gift from God.
I stir it up when I use the gift to show the world His love.

“Stir up the gift of God which is in you.” 2 Timothy 1:6 (NKJV)
