Do you remember when you were a kid and they stuck the shape peg board in front of you. You in turn had to put the shapes in the correct peg hole – circle with circle, square with square. You get my drift. But you didn’t always get the shapes right, You always tried to put that triangle in the circle peg and it just didn’t fit.
As I get older I feel like I am that triangle piece and those around me are circles and it just DOESN’T FIT! To me if you have to try really hard to fit in then you really don’t fit – why force it. It’s like trying to fit into those jeans from highschool – you know you can’t wear those jeans anymore (I mean a little exercise, maybe you can, but that’s another topic).
You would think this is something you think about as a pre-teen or an adolescent but not as an adult. But I am finding that as an adult I just don’t fit in with those around me. I mean I do have some commonalities – wife, mother, career woman however these are obvious. But, I am not particularly into going to the club, I don’t participate in male and/or husband bashing, cursing, and I am definitely not fond of negativity. It’s truly time to separate myself which can be a challenge. I am looking for something deeper that I have in common with others – I desire people that our striving to be closer to GOD, people that want to build something of their own – entrepreneurship, those that want to make a true difference in this world – Game changers.
It seems that when GOD is preparing you for greatness he separates you from those you thought you fit in with. He has to pull you away, not necessarily alone but closer to him – he wants you to FIT IN with him. Once you have that relationship you will be able to draw more people to you. Others will be attracted to the good works that God has provided to you.
But as for me, it is good for me to draw near to God; I have made the Lord God my refuge and placed my trust in Him, That I may tell of all Your works. Psalms 73:28 AMP
