“You Are the Only You”
by Dona Hake
“You are the only person on earth who can use your ability.”
Zig Ziglar
YOU were fearfully and wonderfully made with the creative fingers of your Lord.   He formed YOU so intricately in the womb.   He had a special purpose for YOU for such a time as this!    
It is interesting as we continue to walk out our days on this earth.   What God may have assigned us to do yesterday was only for that day.   We cannot live off of the fumes of our faith and accomplishments of yesterday.   Each day is a brand new canvas in our life, His mercies are new toward you, and His faithfulness is there for every breath you take.   Today there is a new assignment that only YOU can do for Him.
I will never forget when I heard someone share this wonderful tidbit of wisdom.
  “The call is to the heart and the grace is to the call.”
No matter what we have been called to do, our Lord will equip us for that call with His precious grace.  Let us never compare our walk with the Lord with another Believer.     Instead, stay aware of the moment in which you live, and live to only do that which He is speaking to YOU.   You are the only YOU that will ever live, and only YOU can use those God given abilities, talents, etc. as you draw upon His grace each day of your life.  
Today I encourage you to thank God for the gifts and abilities that He has put in YOU for such a time as this!
