Why are you dimming your light?



Why the pressure to be “Normal?”
Why the strive to blend in with the world/society?
What happened to the bubbling young girl or boy who believed he or she could take on the world?
Why do we lose that zeal as we get older?
Why do we just give in to the world?
“I don”t care about being great anymore, I just want to live. I just want a normal life.”
“Oh, I am shinning too bright. I stand out too much, I need to hide. I need to dim my light.”
“Oh, I am thinking of the impossibles. Things no-one has ever done before. I need to kill those thoughts. I just want to be ordinary.”


The world is filled with so much darkness.
It is filled with so many people who have given up on their dreams.
Many who have decided to just be “normal”
I just want to go to school, get a job, get married, have kids and have my own little corner of life.
Why does your life have to be other people’s lives?
Is there any rule that says it has to be that way?
Why can’t you be different? Why can’t you stand out?
Why can’t you be the light in the darkness?
Why can’t you deviate from the status quo?

Is there a rule that says you must have a degree by 25?
Is there one that says you must be married before 30?
Why do we run, strive, and beat ourselves just to fit in?
We work, work, work and work just to be normal.
If we are working so much shouldn’t it be for something above normal?


My story doesn’t have to be same as yours
In fact, I don’t want it to be the same.
Where’s the fun in that?
I only get to live once. Why should I live it “normally”, according to the society/world standard?
Why can’t I dare to be different?
I serve a supernatural God.
I serve a God that is definitely not normal.
Because no god will give their life for their people.

Well, I serve a God who did that. He died for my sins.
I serve a God that loves like crazy.
He loves so deeply and unconditionally.
I carry His DNA. So, by all means, I refuse to be normal.
I want to serve my God the way He wants me to serve Him not how the world has chosen to serve Him.
I want to do what He has created me to do no matter how insane and impossible it seems to others.
I want to dream and have my child-like faith in Abba again.
Because with Him by my side, I truly can take on the world.

I am a LIGHT!

The light of the world and I cannot be hidden.
I just have to shine. It is my nature.
I am not going to change who I am because of the world.
If anyone has to change, it is the world, NOT me.

God has put way too much in me for me to dumb it down.
Dare to SHINE this year.
Stop Dimming Your Light.

God bless.
