Why in the world are we so afraid of standing out? Being different? What God intends for us to be is ourselves. But so many times we are uncomfortable with that. Girls- spend all their time in front of a mirror trying to figure out what went wrong, why they "aren't as pretty" as all the other girls. Guys- get their self worth and affirmation from sports, and how many girls they can "hook up" with. Being Mr. Popular. Now not all girls and guys are this way, but most of us- before we truly know what God wants for us, are. We don't listen to who God says we are, but we'll listen to someone who is only our friend for our social status. What? That is crazy! God is TRUTH! We don't need to listen to crazy garbage that people say we are and are not. I want to stand out and be different from the world. Romans 12:2 says, "Do not conform to pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be to test and approve what God's will is- His good, pleasing, and perfect will." NOT OF THIS WORLD!! Different, called out by Christ. Jesus wasn't like everybody else and really people were drawn to Him by that (and many other things too :) So how about instead of being just like everybody else, you stand out for the Kingdom of God. love ya'll!!!!!
