We are loved of God & we are a piece of His body.
Not all parts have the same function, but they all have the same banner.
Being different is not a reason to doubt yourself & stay quiet.
Your voice, the things you say & do that are different, are needed.
No matter how different or new your voice may seem, when you use it under the banner of God’s love you are where you are supposed to be.
Do not step back, do not be silent.
We are all made of the same material. We are not all the same pieces, but we are all under the same banner.
Find Your Voice!!!”””””!

Each of us has a calling & an anointing working in us, leading & guiding us.
We see other people being led by the Lord, & because that is the example…
