A Square Peg in a Round Hole


Do you ever feel like you just don't fit in? Well, that's actually a good thing! You weren't designed to fit in. You are unique and wonderfully made! There's no one on this planet that can do what you've been called to do. All the trials, pain and even joy in your life has been used to mold you and make you into the person you've become. That's not necessarily a good thing. The truth of the matter is, without Christ smoothing off the rough edges and remolding the broken pieces, what you're left with is nothing more than a mess! But when a life is brought to Jesus, fragments and all, it becomes transformed into a wonderful sacrifice that blesses God and is used as a vessel to touch and change lives.


The problem comes when you feel that the influence and gifts God has given you just doesn't measure up to what He's doing in and through others. We must remember that we are the Body of Christ and no matter how small or great our function may be, it's all necessary for the body to function to maximum capacity.


Don't compare your gift or calling to someone else's. You must stay in your lane and do what you've been called to do. The mantle that was designed for you is a perfect fit but when you try to walk and live according to another man's calling, you'll stumble around aimlessly and become frustrated and burnt out. Find out what God has called you to do. Don't try to stand behind a pulpit if he's called you to empty trash cans and clean bathrooms. To be honest with you, I've been there and it was one of my favorite acts of worship. Cleaning toilets for Jesus!! Whatever you are called to do, do it willingly, with joy and unto God! It is all a blessed and high calling if you are doing what you've been called and anointed to do!


Don't look around, don't judge or be jealous of another persons calling, just do you as you were designed to!


1 Corinthians 12:14-27 (NKJV) For in fact the body is not one member but many. If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole werehearing, where would be the smelling? But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. And if they were all one member, where would the body be? But now indeed there are many members, yet one body. And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty, but our presentable parts have no need. But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it, that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.
