“We all have different gifts. Each gift came because of the grace God gave us. Whoever has the gift of prophecy should use that gift in a way that fits the kind of faith they have. Whoever has the gift of serving should serve. Whoever has the gift of teaching should teach. Whoever has the gift of comforting others should do that. Whoever has the gift of giving to help others should give generously. Whoever has the gift of leading should work hard at it. Whoever has the gift of showing kindness to others should do it gladly.”
Romans 12:6-8 ERV
I love God doesn’t require any of us to be alike. He made all of us differently and then encourages us to be filled with his gifts and joy and grace and mercy and love.
You don’t have to spend your time fitting in, you weren’t created for that, he gave you just what you need to be you. God created us all to be of use for the overall good of the world. He made butterflies and bumblebees, they both fly but they are created and born very differently and their purpose is different. Look at tigers and lions, they are both giant cats and I haven’t figured out their purpose yet but look how different they are? Look at boys and girls, they have the same parts but none are the same.
I make those comparisons to remind you that you were created for a reason and nothing that you have said or done, nothing that has been said to you or about you can change your destiny. Dare to be yourself. Don’t forget to dream, don’t forget to let your creativity flow. Remember that the same God that created the stars and the moon saw fit to create you.
Embrace it today, Dare to be you !!!!
