Uniquely You

Do you stand out in a crowd or do you just blend in with everyone else? Do you wear the same clothes, making the same fashion statement as those around you? Do you style your hair the same as all your friends? Do you say the same thing just because ‘everyone is saying it’?

Most people don’t realize they will be more successful in life if they differentiate themselves from others.

People try to fit into a mold and be what others want them to be; only to end up disappointed with themselves and in bondage.

What we’re required to do is be exactly who we are…who God created us to be. Unique. When we act like ourselves, there is no fake façade or story to remember. Our uniqueness is what others will like and respect in us, and that is what separates us from the crowd.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5.

Just as God called and appointed Jeremiah for a specific plan, He’s done the same for you! He created you with a specific purpose.

Today, in every moment of your day, start being who you truly are. The person God created you to be. Full of life, full of joy, and full of love! Don’t change who you are depending on the situation or who you’re taking to.

The more you are you, the more success you will have and the more wealth you will attract. Be unique, be free, be YOU! The YOU God created you to be.

When you come to the end of yourself – there you are!! Usually empty handed, disappointed, frustrated, and broken hearted. Probably wondering why things are working the way you thought they should be.

Been there! Done that! Got the t-shirt!!! Wore it out!! How about you?  Well guess what, when you find yourself in this position, you can always look up and find help; usually a prayer’s whisper away, because God is always watching and listening, waiting to answer your call. He doesn’t sleep or slumber.  Psalm 121:4

At the alter, my alter – white sitting behind my car’s steering wheel driving to town – last month, I had a come to Jesus meeting! I simply ask him why I wasn’t receiving the things I’d been believing Him for.  He told me it was because I was putting my expectations in the wrong places, on the wrong people. I could hardly believe it, but knew it was, in fact, true!

I repented, asked him to forgive me for not trusting Him, made a simple heart adjustment, and the results have been amazing! 

I share the victories and blessings this past month with you because I want to brag on my Father God – El Shaddai – the God who is more than enough! The All Sufficient One!

He bought me a sewing machine in a nice wood cabinet. He brought more babycaring jobs to my daughters. He gave two of my daughters with jobs at a boutique of which they have been blessed with awesome, stylish clothes and accessories. He blessed me with a four-day trip out of town with friends. He blessed our family with unexpected, delicious food. He blessed me with the opportunity to be a blessing to someone else by doing yard work, which I love! My husband and daughters fixed an awesome dinner for birthday. And I got a raise with my job.

I’ve been overwhelmed with His goodness to me this past month…and it’s all because I changed the focus of my expectation to Him, El Shaddai – The All Sufficient One!!!  Thank you, Lord. I will magnify you because you delight in my prosperity! Psalm 35:27 

He will do the same for you because He’s no respecter of persons.  Just trust Him and believe that He is faithful to His Word.
