My Uniqueness And My Heart Of Stone

Jesus was grieved at their hardness of heart and said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and his hand was restored. Mark 3:5

My disappointments and frustrations that have transformed my heart into stone arise from the fact that I am unique. There is no other one like me. Therefore, there will always be rough edges when I meet and interact with others. Their thoughts, actions and emotions may sometimes be like mine but they will always be different, even quite the opposite of what I think, do or feel.

My uniqueness also make me one of a kind and special. When God created me, He was thinking of nobody else and nothing else but me. The bundle of joy that I came as into the world was and is and will be like no other else. This makes me God’s special creation. I am His beloved. And I know this deep in my heart.

I get lonely and frustrated when and if I expect everybody else to be like me when they are not. I find joy and peace when I delight in my uniqueness as God’s beloved and also celebrate the uniqueness and beloved-ness of others around me.

I’m unique, special.
That makes me one of a kind,
One and alone too.
