NO ONE Can Compare to YOU

so…BE YOU.

Be YOURSELF

I saw this foto yesterday and it just really struck me.  You see, I had the opportunity this past week to share about some of the kids I’ve met…and so I’ve thought a lot about them…each one different, with their own personalities, their own stories, their own struggles, and their own skills.  How I so much wanted to help call out the greatness in them, the greatness of simply being themselves, who they were created to be.

We are surrounded by self-help books, the pressure to be the next big star, or to invent, discover, or create the next best thing.  Even I get lost in the comparison and pressure of it all.  “Am I enough?”, I wonder from time to time.  “How am I contributing?”  Don’t get me wrong, there are so many areas in which I can improve, but do I really appreciate the uniqueness of me, what I offer that no one, not even my twin sister (though she is pretty incredible, I might say) can offer?

Each one of us has this in us.  We were created different, unique, special!  Why don’t we appreciate that in ourselves, rather than spending energy and effort trying to be someone we aren’t?  Do we even appreciate that in others when they are different than us?

I know I’ve written about this before, but it’s always a great reminder to me, and something I believe is important to remember.  This is a message I want to share with children, with generations…This is a message I want to remember…

Be you.  You were created with purpose.

  1. Wow sis!!! Love this! God created each and every one of us and said, it is good! And he sent his son to die for us because he loves us and calls us his own! Praise God for his creations!!! Love you!!!

  2. Papa has definitely spent a lot of time walking me through this – teaching me that one of the best ways I can honor Him is to love the me He created.

    Thanks for this reminder today. You’re beautiful, friend. Love you!
