You are UNIQUE
From the world’s beginning there has never been, nor will there ever
be, anyone like you. No one else has your eyes, your smile, your hands
or hair. Nobody in the whole universe can see things like you. You are
Blessed be God our Creator who formed you from the first moment you
existed in your mother’s womb. He knew half of you when your mother was
being formed with all her eventual eggs in her mother’s womb – at her
birth your mother already carried millions of eggs – these diminished to
40,000 by her puberty of which only 400 matured from puberty till
menopause, and among them all, God picked you.
God knew the other half of you among the millions of spermatozoa –
each existing for only 60 days before being reabsorbed – developed and
carried over and over since puberty by your father. One unique egg
developed since conception by your mother and one unique sperm briefly
existing among millions in your father – each containing 23 unique
chromosomes, half of you – had only 60 days to join. God saw them, He
wanted you, and He brought them together to make you.
You are different from any other person who ever lived in the history
of the world; you are the only person on this earth who has your
specific collection of abilities.
In the whole world there will be nobody who can walk, speak, think or
do things like you can. Your need to imitate somebody else is
absolutely wrong because you are rare and this is your value, to be you,
and with God, to become you fully.
You are unique and your life was not a mistake; please realize that
God created you for a specific reason – for your own good, for the good
of others, and for God.
He has a mission for you, which nobody can do as well as you can.
There are millions of activities which can be done in this world, but
God has the right one for you. This is because you are unique and have
the right combinations which God needs. Your life – your suffering, your
love, your joy – is all in God.
That is you, an outstanding person created by an outstanding God. Love Him.
