#HAPPYSUNDAY "Dance To The Beat of Your Own Drum"
We are fighting to find a place in this world where we fit in and perhaps even, meld or disappear into. There are some that seek to be noticed, and others who don’t necessarily want to be noticed but instead, liked by everyone. They want badly to fit it, and would do almost anything—even go against what they believe and who they are—to be accepted and liked by a minority that only seems like everybody. This is not who God created us to be. This is not His plan or vision. God has set us apart; a peculiar people and us chosen. Instead of dancing to the beat of everyone else’s drum, we need to find the beat of our own and dance to it with all we got. Here is the secret that many of us do not see before tragedy strikes. Almost everyone is trying to be somebody that they believe and hope someone else will like. Many of the same people that you want to impress or be like are living a façade. They don’t even know who they are. They are putting on a show for the whole world, just trying to fit in. Dying—literally dying—for someone to love them. To accept the picture that they have painted of themselves, without question. Beloved, just be yourself. Love yourself. Believe in yourself. Celebrate who you are. God has created us to be individuals who complement one another. We all have something that somebody else needs. Once we learn to accept ourselves and love ourselves, then we will begin to appreciate the uniqueness of ourselves and the power of what we bring to the table as individuals.
You are more awesome than you probably know. More special than you ever thought or could conceive. God has set us apart; a peculiar people and us chosen. Instead of dancing to the beat of everyone else’s drum, we need to find the beat of our own and dance to it with all we got. bit.ly/R4LDance2UROwnDrum
