It was extremely difficult, especially during my middle school years, to tower over most of the girls in the school. I was often called, "amazon or giraffe" (kids can be so cruel). But, the lesson I learned at an early age was priceless. I was not going to be "one of the crowd". I wasn't going to be able to blend in.
Our world is filled with negativity, and darkness. We find an entire nation trying to blend in purchasing the latest Tory Burch shoes or the same lip gloss as Kim Kardashian. We analyze what others are wearing and try to create the same look within our homes. We want to speak like Oprah or have a billion dollar idea like Steve Jobs.
We were never meant to be like someone else. We must stay true to ourselves. Stop looking to the world to define who you should be.
It all starts with the power of ONE. At a sporting event the wave starts with one person standing up and cheering. The next thing you know the entire stadium is doing the wave. Look at the man in the mirror and realize YOU have the power to make a difference-not your neighbor or spouse but YOU!
I love the words from Romans 12:2 (MSG)-Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You will be changed from the inside out...God brings out the best in you!
