Are you struggling to be strong and courageous in a job , a performance, a choice to do right or you simply fear being different? One of the greatest fear in life is 'being different' or 'making a difference'. Yet, the greatest difference any one can be or make in this life is by being 'Christ-like'. As Christians we are often tormented by fear. We fear not being understood, we fear being rejected for our faith, we fear being different in a world where it seems as though the world has a greater force. There is absolutely nothing wrong about being different, yet the world makes it look like it is the most humiliating state anyone could be in. Being different is a choice to show everyone that you can conqueror your fears.
"You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world." -1 John 4:4(NIV)
