Different Just Because…

you-are-different-_1You are an Individual by God’s Design…

Today, I thank God for all that He is and I can’t even comprehend all that He is with my finite abilities. I am so thankful for all that encompasses who we are because of who He is. I was reading Psalm 139 this week and the concept of “I am fearfully and wonderfully made” just resonated within me. This culture is obsessed with individuality and doing things differently so that you stand out. Have you ever considered that we will always be different because we are individuals? Five people can do the same thing and there will always be a difference because five different people did it. Whether that difference is large or small, it is different.

I have spent a great portion of my life passing on opportunities because I couldn’t figure out how to be different. Well, duh. Just because I am doing it makes it different. Being in a culture so consumed with doing things differently, looking for the next big thing on the market, are we passing up the joy and pleasures of just enjoying creativity, whether similar or different?

you-are-different_3I am not sure who I am speaking to today. I just know the words are flowing and someone needs to know that you are “fearfully and wonderfully made” just because God made you. He knew you before you were formed in your mother’s womb. He counted your days before you had any. In the flow of learning how to love yourself, you must begin with appreciating the fact that you are an individual, you are special and that God in His greatness believed you were meant to be here as you because He gave you life. Not as someone else, not an imitation of someone else but Y.O.U. It is said that imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Flattery is fine in the shallowness that it is but who you are as an individual is greater than any form of flattery you can give someone else.

Psalm 139:14 – “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.” (NKJV)

you-are-different_2With a tendency to listen to the outside voices of the world – the ads, the suggestions, the constant barrage of doing it better than the next person – we forget that we are individually wrapped for God’s purpose for our lives. He knows you better than anyone including yourself. He created you. Whether you are making a difference in a small circle or a large one, you are making a difference. Measuring ourselves by standards that are unrealistic and unfeasible to boot, we miss the joy and the pleasure of truly living. Enjoy who you are today because “you are fearfully and wonderfully made.” Praise should go forth just because of this one Scripture.
