I am the only me.

I am the only me.

Everyone in the world is different. Out of billions of people there is no one that is the same as me. This fact absolutely blows my mind.

It's so common right now for someone to, for example, start a blog, do photography, get a degree, etc etc. There are THOUSANDS of bloggers and photographer...but I am the only me. I am the only Kristen LemMon with the family, friends, faith, and life experiences that I have. 

How does this apply to you?

You need to do what God is calling you to do. Who cares if someone else is already doing it... you are the only you. God has given you certain gifts so that you can use them to bring Him glory and spread the news that Jesus has died on the cross for our sins. Right now I want you to think about what is holding you back from pursuing your passion...once you identify what is holding you back ask God to take it out of your life. Is it a person you are dating? Is it a dead end job that is sucking the life out of you? Is it debt? Is it a friend? If there is something holding you back from having a deep relationship with Christ it needs to go.

You will never feel content unless you pursue Him wholeheartedly. God gives life; He fills you with joy and love but you have to let Him. You have to surrender you heart to Him. 

Whatever is holding you back I encourage you to pray it away. God wants to use you to do incredible work in His name.

John 14:27 says "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid."

God has you. Let go and trust Him.
