You Don’t Fit

image

You are a square peg and your world is filled with holes, round ones at that. Is it any wonder you don’t fit?

So stop trying.

Be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

That renewal does not come from the latest fad, which usually is just a regurgitation of what was popular ten years ago. Or endless hours in front of the screen watching reruns of the same old violent plots.

Originality has gone out the window, along with the manger baby and the baptismal water. Stop trying to be original for originality’s sake.

Be yourself. But in order to do that you need to turn off the noise and the voices around you clamoring for your time, money, and attention. You need to know yourself.

And the One who knows you best.

You will never fit. You are not supposed to. There will always be some discomfort.

But if you seek, you will find . . . your place and contentment.
