Being different is hard, especially in the world we live in today. Being different when you are still not sure of your own reality, is a little bit harder.
“Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.” -St. Jerome
Saint Jerome said it perfectly, “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.” For some who were not raised in a traditional Roman Catholic household, it is understandable why family and friends scratch their head when they see a family member who is completely opposite from them – the one who is traditionally seen as the black sheep of the family.
Being different, but being different in a way that should be a good thing, is becoming rear.
“But those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
Are you different from your family? Did you ever feel like there was something wrong with you because you didn’t fit in to what their perception of you should be?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, know that there are many black sheep’s in your grazing meadow. You are not alone, even though you may feel that you are at times. It will be during these times that you will find God, and if you already know God, you will have a deeper understanding of God. Not every step back, every grievance, every tear that you have had means that you have a bad hand in life.
God will use these setbacks to fulfill His Vision for your life.
