Day 30: Dramatically Different


What if you could be DIFFERENT?

So dramatically DIFFERENT

that you don't even feel like yourself,

because "your self" is

feeling & doing & being

someone else

who is way better than the you

who you thought you were.

Would it be

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE?

Oh YES!

I never BELIEVED I could be

DIFFERENT

than who I BELIEVED I was.

I was ANXIOUS about everything.

I was AFRAID of my own shadow.

I FEARED the other shoe dropping.

I BELIEVED every cruel word that was said against me.

I LIVED stuck in a cocoon just wanting to be a butterfly,

yet never BELIEVED I could be.

So I strived to be DIFFERENT,

to be CHANGED

to not be my "self",

yet I always fell short

not only of my own expectations

but also of the expectations of others.

But then IT HAPPENED

because

HE HAPPENED.

JESUS took the me who I BELIEVED I was

out of my cocoon of

ANXIETY

FEAR

INSIGNIFICANCE

INSECURITY

&

REJECTION

and made me

DRAMATICALLY DIFFERENT

with

HIS PEACE that transcends all understanding

&

HIS LOVE that drives out all fear.

All because

GOD didn't create me

&

GOD didn't create you

to stay the SAME,

because if we were all the

SAME then where would DIFFERENT be?

DIFFERENT is the BETTER

than you could ever imagine

and all it takes is to

SURRENDER

your whole self

to the ONE who takes you beyond

your self

so that you become so

DIFFERENT

that you never want to be the SAME again.

JESUS stands with HIS outstretched arms

with an invitation

to you, to me, to everyone~

“Take courage, it is I! Do not be afraid!”

(Matthew 14:27)

Oh when you take the

COURAGE to SURRENDER

your SAME self

you wish you hadn't wasted so much time in the past

dreaming about being

DIFFERENT

because

DIFFERENT

happens in an instant

that lasts beyond this lifetime~

"Therefore if anyone is in Christ [that is, grafted in, joined to Him by faith in Him as Savior], he is a new creature [reborn and renewed by the Holy Spirit]; the old things [the previous moral and spiritual condition] have passed away. Behold, new things have come [because spiritual awakening brings a new life]" ( 2 Corinthians 5:17)

I have been called

DIFFERENT

and that is the best compliment that I will ever receive

because being

DIFFERENT IN HIM

is the only place where I ever want to be.

Are you DIFFERENT?

And if not,

What

"IF I GAVE YOU (GOD) MY HEART"

(listen to the song below)
