Different?

No two people are alike. God designed us uniquely and intricately. No two people share the same fingerprints. No two people have the same dental records. We are so different God knows our names and the number of hairs on our head. Every tear that falls from our faces, God is aware.

In a world where society dictates what is acceptable and what is not, it is refreshing to hear the words, “It’s okay to be different.” We all are. Some of us are small, some medium, some large, and some extra large. Some of us are dark and some of us are light and some of us are tinted in between. We like different hobbies. We talk in different ways.

As a person who enjoys watching people, I’ve learned over the years how amazingly beautiful each person is in his or her own way – some more so on the inside, some more so on the outside, and some both.

Why then do so many people suffer from insecurities and feelings of inadequacy? The reality is ‘different is normal.’ If we are all created by God and no two people are the same, aren’t we all then different?

Several years ago, I had the opportunity to speak with a man who had been blind since birth. He told me his blindness was a blessing. When I questioned him why, he explained, “Because I do not have the ability to judge anyone based on his or her outward appearance. People are who they are to me.”

Today, view the people as God sees them. God doesn’t make mistakes. Each and every one of us are cherished and loved by Him.
