What makes you special?
Is it your sense of humor? Your keen ability to organize? Your way of making others feel welcome?
Or, can you make a mean chocolate cream pie? Are you one who always sees the glass half-full, or do you have a passion for a specific sport or hobby?
Last night I gleaned from fourteen amazing women one thing that made each one special. As I listened to each one share, I couldn’t help but smile. I couldn’t help but secretly rejoice and praise God for creating all of us with such individuality. It was refreshing and inspiring.
But, when it was my turn to share, I met a roadblock. I had a difficult time coming up with something. What makes me special? Should I share how I’m a jock at heart? Is it my knack of taking on too much? Or, is it because I’m a wife and mom? I ended up sharing how my three brothers and I all live within 20 minutes of each other. That’s pretty special, but I’m not sure I really answered the question.
Friend, what makes you special?
Take a few moments if needed. Ponder this all-important question. Because if we’re wanting to live a real life, embracing how we are individually extraordinary is key.
And, if you’re feeling like sharing, I sure would like to read it below. I’d love to celebrate what makes you incredibly special.
We have different gifts because God has blessed us in different ways. Romans 12:6a (WE)
Allow me to share another perspective. You and I are special because we are children of the King. We are God’s unique creation. After all, He formed us in His image. Wow! That alone makes us special. So, even if we have a hard time answering the above question, or if we are feeling un-special today, here is a truthful answer. Maybe the most important answer.
We are special because of our Creator.
And, that’s a truth we can rest in today and build a real life upon.
