The Blessing Of Being Disliked

Yeah, that is right! I believe there is a blessing in being disliked, if you can be who you are, and not something or someone they want you to be. When God made you, He was intentional. I think one of the saddest ways to live life, if you name it living, is to go through life being someone you are not. In other words, you are living a life you think they except you to live. You are not being true to the person you are. You say to yourself; “I’m not who they think I am; I’m what I think they think I am!”

I guess at the end of the day I want to be who I am. I do not want to become something or someone that I’m not just to get a pat on the back. I want to live life; so that when I die, it will have mattered that I lived in the first place. I want to experience being faithful to the real me, and not what they want me to be. How about you-do you feel the same way?

What am I trying to say? I’m telling you to stop being someone beside yourself and lead your life strong just the way God made you. I’m not sure where I heard it, but I agree with this next statement… “I would rather be disliked for who I am than loved for whom I’m not.” If someone doesn’t love you for who you are then they don’t deserve to be in your company. Just remember this today…everything about you is exclusive (the way God made you) and everything about you matters.

The bible says  in Psalm 139:14, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Now go be the YOU God made you to be and change the world for His glory.
