You know what term I hate? “Stay in your lane.” I think it has really good intention, and I think that I can understand the heart behind it, but what I believe is that we were created to be multi-faceted human beings. Oftentimes I’ve heard that saying, “stay in your lane” and I’ve thought, wow, I have to be either this way or that way. I have to be either really serious or the funniest girl in the room sometimes. And that’s just like too much pressure. And I think that God has created us to have this range. A range of personality, a range of emotions, a range of things that we’re interested in that can be polar opposites.
And so I just want to encourage you out there. If you feel like you’re stuck in this one lane, whether that be on social media, just in real life, wherever you’re at, at work, I want to encourage you that God wants to break that. We so often say, “don’t put God in a box,” but I think we really put ourselves in a box a lot. And I want you to feel empowered to break out of that, to be all that God has created you to be. To be the woman and man that God has created you to be, to go after everything in life that He has put on your heart, and those can be two polar opposite things.
I just feel like I want to pray for you to have people around you to encourage you to go after the things that you’re passionate about, and to see the different sides of your personality of your heart that God has created so beautifully, and woven you to be this amazing human being. I just want to leave you with that. You’re amazing. You’re more than just one simple thing. You have free range to go after God in whatever way you want to.
