Thankful Thursday On Friday- Being Unique


Hello my dear friends, sorry I missed thankful Thursday yesterday. It was one of those crazy busy days. But, I just had to post it today, I love thankful Thursdays. Laurie chose a great theme this week, being unique. Praise God, we are all unique. The world would be quite a boring place if we were all the same, that is why God created us all differently. He gave us all our own personalities, talents, morals, and looks. I am not you, and you are not me. We are all special in our own way, never doubt that. The only one you need to try to be more, and more like, is Jesus. Please do not try to be like your favorite movie star, singer, or even your best friend. Love your sister, but do not try to be a carbon copy of her. Choose to be like Jesus, shine as brightly for Him as you possibly can. Lead others to Him, soon the whole world could be shining for Jesus. Oh beautiful Star of Bethlehem, shine on.

Amen, Denise. We are all special in our own ways, the way God made us. Thanks for the reminder that the only one we need to try to be more, and more like, is Jesus. How true! Thanks for your love for the Lord and His people. Love you.
