When we talk about uniqueness, most people think we are talking about outward appearance alone.
There is so much more that make you different from the other person. Every part of you is for a purpose.
You may be identical twins or as siblings you may look alike yet you differ in so many ways.
Ever wondered why the master made you the way you are?
You came to perform a duty.
You were prepared for that.
One of the reasons Joseph was sold to slavery was to provide food during the famine for his family.
God does not make mistakes.
Stop wishing to be someone else, your assignments are different.
When I had my last surgery, there was a lot of promise and hope, I expected close to perfect results but as I recovered reality hit, I had better legs alright, the surgery was a huge success but I was still obviously limping.
Disappointment nearly set in and as I questioned why i did not get perfect results.
The Lord asked me "if I take this leg away, who will you be?". You are here on a specific assignment.
The truth hit me hard. This is who I am, I will lose my purpose if I changed.
If I changed , what will I be known by?
The artiste formerly known as ......
If you love me please do not pray for perfection for me.
What about the huge bug like eyes?
They are to see what others cannot see.
And the deep deep voice?
My goodness the most unique voice, I have ever heard, I still shudder when I listen to a recording of my voice.
I hated this the most because people always answered "Yes Sir" to me on the phone.With time I have come to understand that there were reasons for the voice. Reason #1 ask Tony Iro. Reason #2, it makes speaking to others easy as it is very loud but also soothing. The Master knew I will be speaking hope to others.
On the inside, sometimes my heart makes me sad, especially when people hurt me by treating my kindness as stupidity, I have trusted people that may as well have spat on my face and I promise I will become tougher, then I hear a tiny voice ask me "Who will you become after that?" Then I pause.
What about my stubbornness?
"Defender of the universe" I have always been that way, I will fight and defend the weak. Sometimes people think is bad, they call me stubborn, strong headed and rigid.That is who I was made to be, to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.
Care to share what makes you unique?
Happy New Year friends!
