Journey to Abiding - Week 7: Different Makes the Difference
Updated: Feb 1, 2022
I've been thinking a lot lately about how as a culture we are told daily that we need to be a certain way, act a certain way and respond a certain way. If we don't fit into this little box that the world puts in front of us then we are cast aside and forgotten. What if I told you it was the very things that the world tries to hide about you that the world needs the most right now.
There is a unique plan and purpose for your life and a light inside of you that the world needs. Maybe for the first time I'm realizing myself just how important it is to be you in a world that tells you who you should be instead.
I want you to understand and realize that it is those little things that make you different that make you who you are. The people who make the biggest difference in the world are not the people who do everything the same, it is the people who let the very things that make different help them to make a difference in the world around them.
I strongly believe that being different is what makes the biggest difference. Life is hard and can be extremely difficult at times, but don't let that stop you from being who you are. You are loved, cherished, needed, and wanted, and most of all you are enough. If there was one piece of knowledge I could leave with you I would want it to be this - the things that make you different are the very things this world needs the most.
I know this post is shorter then most of my posts, but I've said all I can think to say. However, I'll leave you with this - "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future" (Jeremiah 29:11).
You have a God-given uniqueness!
