Many, if not all, of us have a desire to fit in. At first, that desire to fit in might manifest as wanting to be like everyone else, but that’s not what it’s all about.
I believe God created us with a desire to fit in because we are supposed to fit together, but not in the way we first thought. God made each of us different, and the way we fit together is like a puzzle–each puzzle piece is different, and that’s why it fits and holds together. When it is put together, it makes one big, beautiful picture.
If the blue piece thought it had to be like the red piece, it would be mistaken, because without the blue piece, the picture would not be right. Likewise, if the blue piece thought the red piece should be conformed to its own blue image, the blue piece would be mistaken, because the picture would not be right without the red piece.
God made each of us unique for a purpose. We each have our own special gifts, abilities, and interests from God, given to us because He knows the big picture, and how we all fit together to make it. And that picture is perfectly beautiful, as a whole, and in each part.
We can accept how God made us even though it is different from how He made another person, because we trust in God’s wisdom.
Praise the Lord, for He is good! Let us rejoice and be glad in Him.
O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! (Romans 11:33)
