Be yourself

Be ye set apart for the work of the Lord.  As you submit to God's plan for your life more and more, you will find yourself doing things a little different than others.  I cannot stress enough that we are unique in the Lord and we all have a unique design.  The "cookie cutter" christian is not living according to God's plan.  When you are following God's plan for your life,  not only will there be something "set apart" in your actions, behavior, and routine; but you will also have a strong sense of your own uniqueness; and we need to own that and be proud of it because God did it!  Praise God.  Don't try to fit in. 

There have been 2 scriptures that have been on my heart.

Matthew 11:12

12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.
Ephesians 3:20
New King James Version (NKJV)
20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,

Don't get 2 intertwined in the lives of others.  Keep your focus on whatever vision God has given you for your life and that's what he will work through.  I find that when I allow myself to get intertwined the thoughts and purpose of others, I sense myself getting further from my relationship with God.  But when I'm focused on what the Lord has told me and showed me, I sense that I'm right in the center of His will.
