I've been told that I'm different. I know I'm different. Sometimes I want to be the same as everyone else... it's so tempting. But then I remember that the world doesn't want more people like me. The world wants someone who is different.
Romans 12:2 says to "not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind"
Believe me, there are days that I just want to fall into the patter of the world, but I know that I've been called to be different. That I'm set apart. That God has great things in store for my life that can't be accomplished if I'm the same as everyone else.
1 Peter 2:9 says "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light."
I'm trying to be different. It's hard, but in the end it'll all be worth it.
