Have you ever felt different from everyone else? Feeling like an outcast or you simply didn’t feel like you fit in with the crowd? Well, I sure have. There have been many times that I didn’t fit in or I felt rejected in some way. It tends to make you wonder, “What’s wrong with me?” Why do I feel like I stick out like a sore thumb?
Guess what? We are blessed to be different. John 16:19 tells us: “If you belonged to the world, the world would treat you with affection and would love you as its own. But because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you.” The good news in Galatians 1:15 says: “But when He, Who had chosen and set me apart before I was born and had called me by His grace (His undeserved favor and blessing), saw fit and was pleased.”
We were chosen by God, Himself. So, guess what gang…You can STOP TRYING TO FIT IN. You don’t have to feel different or rejected just because the world may see you this way. You can simply be grateful that you are unique and special because you belong to the Creator of the Universe. HE LOVES YOU RIGHT NOW and IS PLEASED!
What could possibly be better than that?
SHOUT IT OUT…I AM SPECIAL, UNIQUE, TALENTED, AND ACCEPTED! GOD LOVES ME and I AM PART OF HIS AMAZING FAMILY! Doesn’t that just make you want to do a happy dance?
So, why don’t you take a moment and let Him know how much you appreciate it.
Say: Thank you Lord for accepting me into your family. I’m grateful that you love me and that your amazing presence surrounds me. I am special and unique with a very bright future ahead of me. Thank you for all that you do, Father. In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen!
