Hello Sweet Soul!
What if you were a giraffe and you were raised by bears? Or a monkey raised by swans? You would try with all your might to please the pack, the giraffe would grow frustrated at not lumbering along like it’s peers, of preferring the taste of a leaf over raw prey, at trying to sleep all winter!
The monkey would try and try to swim beautifully like the graceful swans only to be a shaking, splashing, silly mess.
Following Christ means you won’t always fit in with the hipster peeps you hang out with. But, DearOne, there is only one you that you were created to be. Only one true mirror of who we are – if you want to know who you really are, look to the only source that can reflect your true image back to you. Find who you are in Christ’s mirror. Look at Him for your identity. Keep looking. Go.
‘Yahweh your God is among you, a warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will bring ⌊you⌋ quietness with His love. He will delight in you with shouts of joy.” (Zephaniah 3:17 HCSB)
