Dare To Be Different




The sun is glorious in one way, the moon is glorious in another way, and the stars are glorious in their own [distinctive] way; for one star differs from and surpasses another in its beauty and brilliance.

                                                                                                                                   1 Corinthians 15:41



I’m sure you’ve noticed how different human beings are! We’re all unique. Like the sun, the
moon, and the stars mentioned in today’s scripture, God created each of us to be different from one another, and He did this on purpose. Each of us meets a need, and we are all part of God’s overall plan. We’re all born with different temperaments, different physical features, different emotional makeups, different gifts and abilities- different everything. Our goal should be to find out what makes us special and unique and to succeed at being the best individuals we can be. When we struggle to be like others, we lose our distinctiveness and even lose ourselves in the process. We also grieve God’s Holy Spirit. God wants us to fit into His plan, not to devise our own plans or try to fit into someone else’s design. We need to find out what God wants us to have, who He wants us to be, and what He wants us to do. That’s where we’ll discover our gifts and find both success and enjoyment. You are an individual, created on purpose for a unique role in God’s plan. I encourage you to recognize and celebrate the things that distinguish you from everyone else and enjoy the freedom that comes from being exactly who God made you to be!

This blog post has been festering lately.  I have lots to say, but don't know how to say it.  Mainly, I want to say it with grace and conviction.  I worry that I won't do that properly, but I feel like this needs to be shared.


I don't support teen dating because I was a teen dater.
I wish it …

Self-Confidence

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.

Self-Confident: believe in oneself or one's own abilities
In one's own powers, judgment, etc.


In everything we do, we should have confidence in ourselves. God builds us up to love ourselves and to know that everything we do He gave us the gift to do it. Don’t allow anyone to put you down and say things like, you will never accomplish anything in life. Or you are just wasting your time. Nobody is going to see any good in that. In spite of what people say about you, you need to know you can do anything you set your mind to do. Have confidence in yourself and knock down all the negative things that come your way.

Hold your head up high and allow people to see what God sees in you. Don’t walk in fear wondering about where life will take you in the future. Live for today and God will help you with the rest. Treat yourself right and own your lif…
