God Talk: Be yourself!

"The Bible says, 'We have different gifts, according to the grace [divine enablement] given us.' (Romans 12:6 NIV) So recognise and develop your gift. That can be intimidating, especially if you've spent your life looking for approval from people who've none to give you. Stop making your life an ongoing struggle to be something you weren't meant to be. God made you who you are; when you try to be somebody else the best you can ever be is number two. So be yourself; after all, who's more qualified?" (The Word for Today)
