When Searching the World

I have searched the world. I have met such a large diversity of unique people that I have loved all around the world. I have traveled and searched all over. Always looking. Always exploring. Always wondering what was next. I found I was searching for my identity, trying to see who I was like of my vast array of ingredients I am made of. Hungarian, French, English, Aboriginal American Indian, Swedish, German, Scotch- Irish, and much of my family living in Africa. Which part is me? Where do I fit in?

It struck me that I am unique. There is no one like me. No one that I am like. I am weird. And really, I am an exquisite coctail of all these brave and successful descendents but fully God’s special built me. And I fit in with Him and pretty much that is what really matters most. More than that I am loved deeply by Him, no matter what. So I don’t have to keep searching. There is no right fit. I am beautifully weird everywhere except in God’s arms.❤

Life’s Strange Journeys and Perfect Imperfection

I believe that from conception, we are destined to be on a strange journey until we leave this body and go to our eternal destination. I believe that we are on that strange journey partly because of the choices we make out of pride, selfishness, greed or even good intentions, but also because of the choices God makes in leading is toward Himself and a glorious eternity. I believe life is beautiful because everyone’s strange journey is unique. Even if it parallels another person’s journey, the giftedness of each person is unique, their looks or ethnicity is unique, their other relationships are unique, and these differences are part of the beauty. And all the twists and turns make it even more beautiful and hopefully closer to God. And my own personal story, wrought with glory, joy, happiness, intense pain, more intense pain, almost killed me pain, beauty, nature, travel, lots and lots of people, distance at times and now extreme closeness to God, music, art, leadership, degrees from formal education, life education, children, husband, and grandchildren, and weirdness. This has been the highlights of my life. I would not change a damn thing, not even the near death experiences, not even the depression, and definitely not all the good moments or those two seconds when life was perfect and I felt loved unconditionally by a person which faded fast. All of it and definitely my relationship with God my Father, I would not change one thing. It is accumulatively strange and beautiful. No one’s story is mine. No one’s mind is filled with my memories and story. These together are my steange and amazing journey. And yours is just as unique and strange.and beautiful. This is exactly as God designed and intended. Perfectly imperfect.❤

Truth of Stereotypes, Categorizations & Cliches

Every single person is unique. Every person was made uniquely by God out of love and careful thought. There is no love in judging people as being the same as everyone who is female or male or brown or peachish-tan or young or old or anything. For every woman who likes to shop and buys shoes like they breathe, I can show you a woman who works hard for her family and has three pairs of shoes (I am one of those). For every brown person who loves vulgar lyric rap songs, I can show you one who appreciates the sophistication of classical and jazz. For every man who thinks women were made to be their worshipping slaves, I can show you one who respects and teams with his wife. For every half-dead somber church member, I can show you a flaming charasmatic one. What I am saying is that the only true stereotypes or categorizations or cliches concerning people groups is that they are all ignorant constructs based on faulty or inadequate evidence to back them up. They are basically lies that foster division. And we must educate ourselves and work as a team as we were designed to do. Get over the propoganda and discover for yourself. I will be happy to introduce you to some people who would blow your mind, they are so very different than what people think by looking at them. All my patients are so stinking unique and amazing! I am too. So are you. So is evrrybody, that is the point. We were all designed by a loving God uniquely and on purpose and no person should ever be put into a stereotyping, cliche- driven category. It is demeaning and demoralizing and shows great disrespect for our Creator. Thank God we andre all unique and praise God He is so clever to give us all a mind to think for ourselves. Be you! ❤

Uniqueness

I could not possibly be you and do all that you do. Likewise, you could not possibly be me and do all I can do. This is a truth that will always be. How do I know this? What makes me so sure? God made each of us unique with special gifts and abilities. As such, He expects us to use those for Him.❤

A Copy of a Copy of a Copy

I really don’t listen to 9 Inch Nails because I am quite guarded as to the lyrics I allow into my head and am picky about the style of music, etc. Anyway, we were flipping through channels and on Paladia they came on singing this song with the lyrics, “I am a copy of a copy of a copy…”. And nothing else about that song mattered because my mind was going off on a tangent, so off the TV went and here I am thinking it out. Are we just a copy of a copy of a copy? And I think the reality answer is both yes and no. Yes, we are genetic copies of our parents and yes, we all are copies of sorts of our forefathers through that chromosomal line of nuclear information. However, I and you are much much more than the sum of our parts. We are each unique in this way: God used the tools from your mother and father’s cells as the basis for forming us in the womb of our mother and then adds unique abilities and thought processing beginnings and specific gifts of spiritual and/or physical basis. He designs us each just exactly the way He thinks is best for us and His kingdom, where everyone harmoniously has their part to play and work to do for everything to work best. Every person is vital, every person is unique and no gift is unimportant or insignificant by any stretch of the imagination. This is why abortion is horrific, ending a life created not by a mistake or misdeed but on purpose for a purpose. And even if you had/have a “bad” parent on one side does not determine the “fate” or destiny of the child. Genes are building blocks but not the final story and certainly not stronger than the Holy Spirit’s work in the redeemed soul. Each gift is different and a person’s unique gift has absolutely nothing to do with what gift your parents received. We are each different. Even identical twins differ in their spiritual and sometimes physical gifts from God. There is no mistake or hopeless case and on the flip side there is no one person more important than anyone else. We are vastly important individually because of Who created us. We are also incredibly powerful because of His Spirit living inside us when we are saved. And not one single person is more important or more powerful than any other person because we are all made uniquely by God and He is the focus, He is the Creator God, the Great One. When He is lifted up, He is right where He should be and we are all lifted with Him because He is generous and loving. This is truth. End of story.
