You are it!

Max Lucado writes... "You are the only you God made. He made you and broke the mold."

Think about this for a moment! No one in the whole world is YOU. You're it. The way you act, the way you think, the things you do and the way you do them... they are uniquely you. You see, we get one shot, just one shot at shining and impacting this world. How do you influence your community? How do you influence your place of employment? How do you impact the Kingdom of God? What about your influence on your family and friends? You're the only one that can do it. No one else has what you offer!

The sad thing is that if you don't shine, the world misses out. There's no one else that can or will do what you can. You are individually made by God with his purpose and plan for life in mind. You offer society a gift that no one else brings. If you don't bring it, it won't be brought. If you aren't you, we don't get you. The world misses out.

Psalm 33:14-15
From the place of His dwelling He looks on all the inhabitants of the earth; He fashions their hearts individually.

Very true... each person has their own gifts to give. Sometimes we don't want to speak up when we should, and perhaps if we do we will bring a new light into someone else's life.
