When God made you it put a smile on His face. Yes, that's what the book of I Corinthians tells us. So, why then do so many people not accept the way God made them? And even more incredibly, try and change the way God made them?
He made you on purpose for a purpose. He has a job for you to do that no one else can do as well as you can. Out of billions of applicants, you're the most qualified.
It's been said that the biggest enemy of great is good. The biggest enemy most of us will face is ourselves. That nagging voice that says, "Be like him, you're not worthy, do what she does, go where the crowd is going." You see, when you are trying to be like someone else, the best you can ever be is second best.
It's time to get our eyes off of others and onto God. People will always detour you, but God will always keep you on track. To become the person God intended you to be, use what God has given you. Follow your unique plan. Resist imitation and live the unlimited life God has for you...
