Have you ever felt that you were “different”?

I have, and it used to bother me a lot, so I tried to be less “different.”

Where did that get me? Absolutely nowhere.

So I finally (and very gradually) woke up to an important fact:

There is no “different.”

As the apostle Paul put it so simply: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female…”

And that list could go on and on into infinity.

We are who we are, and each one has an important role in life, a significant message to offer…it doesn’t even matter if you’re part of the smallest minority on the planet, you’re just as powerful, important and BLESSED as anyone.

The secret is to EMBRACE that, CLAIM it, and then LIVE it…

Easier said than done? Maybe, but just keep on keepin’ on, and pretty soon the essence of YOU will take over, as if it had a life of its own…because it does.

Do you feel “different”?
