Don’t Fit Any Box

Don’t Fit Any Box

March 13


“For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength” (v. 25).

When I was young, I stammered and could not always respond promptly with the people around me. I had terrible handwriting, and many of my teachers complained about it. I struggled in primary school and high school and was not sure If I would ever go to university. But I always wanted to write. I wrote to express my opinion and my mind.

As I trusted God over the years, he provided me with the ability to persevere and go to the university and graduate with many degrees. When I look back, I can genuinely say that “the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom.”

Lord, help me not to accept any labels placed on me by the society to define me. AMEN.
