This post is an unedited, 5-minute free write on the word prompt “Same.” It’s part of a “5 Minute Friday Challenge” and you can view the wonderfully diverse results from other bloggers at the bottom of the linked page.
May the contents inspire you to Shine the wonderfully awesome, one-of-a-kind Light you have in you…

I want different. I need different. I don’t want a rainbow full of red bands….give me full color.
I don’t want people like zombies…I want diversity. I want to see the world through your eyes. I want to know what makes your heart sing. And I want to be me.
Sometimes we move in circles where we are expected to fit into some mold. I am sad to say I hit this hardest in some church settings. When I expect or hope for freedom, I get hit with regulations. Same old Same old.
When my spirit wants to fly through the roof, I get hit with structure and time constraints…and crying little ones.
It’s ok, I know it must be like this now, but I long for the Day when we will all truly be free. When the beautiful diversity that God put into us is fully expressed and fully appreciated.
Don’t be the “Same”….be You. You are the only one He made like you—if you don’t shine your light, the entire universe will miss His Unique Reflection through you.
The rainbow needs all it’s colors.
