I created a post back in November of last year titled “How We See Ourselves,” and this post is going to be similar. What I want to talk about is being unique, God created all of us and He created us to be something special, something like no one else. I have mentioned that I read a book titled, You Can Be Everything God Wants You To Be, and in this book that is all it talks about, how God created us in a unique way. Ephesians 2:10 says, For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago. So why don’t we stop, and figure out what God has planned for our lives, start being happy with what is going on, whether it be at home or at work, let God lead and guide you.
Psalms 139:13-16 says this, You made all the delicate inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous–how well I know is. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.
God made you unique and God knows exactly what is going to happen with you and in your life. So many people today are unhappy, mainly at work, because they aren’t doing what they were made to do. I love statistics, and here are a few that were in my book.
- Unhappiness on the job affects one-fourth of the American work force.
- One-fourth of employees view their jobs as the number-one stressor in their lives.
- Seven out of ten people are neither motivated nor competent to perform the basics of their job.
- Forty-three percent of employees feel anger toward their employers often or very often as a result of feeling overworked.
Don’t add to these statistics, be unique for God and get out there and do what it is that He has planned for you. Live your life for God and in His way, and I guarantee you that you could not be happier.
