MORNING MEDITATIONS AND FOOD FOR THOUGHT!
Psalms 139:14; Read verses 15 and 16.
"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:"
YOU ARE UNIQUELY DIFFERENT!
Society is always trying to tell us who we should be. T.V. Ads are always suggesting products to use so we can be the 'new thing' or the 'more acceptable thing'. I don't know if you noticed, but the African Americans in Hollywood are getting lighter and lighter (complexion wise).
The manufacturers of clothing and designers are always suggesting to men and women what styles to wear, what colors are in or out. Some of us are dependent on the latest style reports. Where is our uniqueness?
I don't know about you, but God created me to be a 'Thinking Person'. He gave me the blue print that's full of knowledge, wisdom and discernment.
I was told that I shouldn't wear white after labor day. I turned to the person and asked, "Who wrote that rule and who are you listening to?"
Each of us are uniquely different. God never intended for us to be like anyone else. God didn't just throw you and I together. We didn't just fall off a meat truck! He strategically created us with what no one else has in the same way! Have you noticed that? We all have two legs, arms, ears, eyes, a nose and a mouth, but it's not positioned the same way on our bodies. Your 'gait' (way you walk) is different than my gait. Our tone of voice is different which suggests to me that our nose canal is different.
God decided that you were to be African American, male or female, Asian, Indian, Caucasian, Hispanic, Cuban, or African, etc...He did that on purpose! There was a reason for your ethnicity! There is a special reason for the race you were born into!
We have been emotionally and psychologically put together differently. It doesn't matter if we came from good stock or not. Some of us may have been born into dysfunction or upper class families, it still doesn't have a thing to do with who God created us to be. We are all 'Wired' differently for God's purposes!
No one is like you! No one can do what you do in the way that you do it! No one can have the desired affect upon the face of this earth like you can! God has made us different. Don't let anyone tell you how to be!
The next time you walk by a mirror, let God know this, "I like what you've done with me. I like how you've wired me!"
Take your stand and make your mark in the corner of the world where God has placed you!
As a writer, I enjoy giving you the honest side of truth! As an artist, I create what doesn't exist. Each day I look for new and creative ways to use every ability God has so graciously given me.
