Hope you enjoyed the last post on What’s So Special About Me? If you missed it, you should check it out. We’ll be continuing the topic today.
One of the key reasons why you keep asking if you are really special is because you haven’t noticed a reason that proves to you that you are really special. Let’s look at Spiderman for example. Do you think he is special? Of course, he is, he has super spider powers. He can shoot webs, swing on them and even help the society by catching criminals and saving the day. He doesn’t need a preacher to tell him how special he is.
You too are like Spiderman; you just haven’t looked well enough, yes you! Have you noticed how gifted you are? The number of talents that you possess without having to do anything special to have them. Some of you have amazing voices that make a room go quiet whenever you sing; people always want to hear you sing often. But you just grew up knowing it was something you could do. For some, it is playing a musical instrument that just comes naturally, for you it can be that you can calculate math in your head real quick.
You have to look within. In one of the Lion King parts, Timon was told to look beyond what he sees. That’s exactly what you ought to do as well, look beyond your everyday life into you, you’ll find what makes you special. That one thing can be a major foundation to getting things done for you in your life, in addition to other things.
So you must carry your sense of uniqueness into every area of your life knowing fully well that there is nothing you cannot do. Don’t ever find yourself saying, I am just a good artist, I can’t pass at anything else. You can excel at everything you do!
Finally, we can learn from the stories of superheroes, that our gifts and talents have a special place in the hearts of others when we use them for good. Most superheroes go about using their skills to solve human needs. Look for avenues and places to help those in need as soon as possible. Can you use your special skills to make someone’s day? When you find them, and help them is when you’ll understand how special you really are. Beyond it all, God sees you and the good you do and will surely bless you. Give it a try today!
