Life is a wonderful thing. I cannot imagine life without my Savior, My King, My Father. There are so many different people in this life. People who smoke and drink. People who sleep around. People who scoff at those who do. People who marry. People who stay single. People who dance.People who sing. People who do not do anything.
Why do I try and conform to that which I am not? Why do I think that others want me to be something I am not? The truth is others might want you to be something you are not because that is what they are. Often we try and conform others to have OUR passions and OUR desires. But God in His infinite majestic detailed ways (He knows the number to all the hairs on your head Luke 12:7) has created each one of us different - for a different purpose, place, position, people.
I think about the snow. Each snowflake is different; no two are alike. God is not a God of favoritism but of love. I find myself wondering - where did I go wrong - how can I be better? All because I am different and do not desire for others to think I'm wrong. Boiling down to the simple fact that I do not have their passion, I am not them.
For too long I have allowed people to control who I am. I, not them, allowed it to happen. So - Who am I?
I am a child of the King; I am a daughter of the Most High God!We all have our differences and our faults. But, God, He looks at the heart. So, when some come against you - know it is truly Him - our Father who knows the truth. He knows our heart.
Father - I pray for a spirit of humility to clothe your children. Humility in the fact that we cannot do this in our own strength. Humility to be ourselves. Humility to accept all you have created us to be. Humility to let go of those whom you have called to be in our lives for a short time. Humility to keep those who belong. Humility to take our place. Humility to run OUR race (Heb 12:1). Humility to carry on regardless of what others think.
