Don't spend all your time trying to do something you are not good at. Instead, let God show you what you are good at.
"Except the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it…" (Ps. 127:1).

I spent a year trying to do something that I did not do well. Day in and day out I had continual defeat. I was so discouraged. I might spend all day sewing on a shirt, then hem it on the wrong side and have to spend hours picking the hem out. I continually felt defeated.

Don't spend all your time trying to do something you are not good at. Instead, let God show you what you are good at. Generally, the things you are good at are the things you are going to enjoy.

God wouldn't make us do something we hated all of our life. Why are we always trying to do something we can't do? Why not just find something we do well and go for it? It is amazing how much better it makes us feel.
