Standing Out, What Makes Me Different

By LeannaRose, Moreno Valley, CA

I walk through the doors of my high school as I watch hundreds of kids pass by. Millions of teenagers just like me nationwide attend school as well, so what makes me so special? What am I doing to stand out? I would hope the answer is obvious to those who know me. I smile every time I am recognized as the Christian girl, so innocent and outspoken. It is an accomplishment to know I do not have to tell someone how I stand because my actions are speaking for me. I attend the Bible study at my school, and Church regularly. I stand out from the crowd by saying no to the simplest things. My peers may say im “too innocent” because I choose not to cuss, “try” alcohol, or go too far with a boy. However, I know I am not a saint. I make mistakes, sometimes I make the wrong decisions, I get mad and frustrated and slip a few words I should not have, but that is what makes me human.

This is one of the best things I have read in a long time. Way to hit the nail on the head! This is exactly what being a Christian is all about. I hope you don't mind if I quote this when I speak to people about Christ.

I thought this was amazing. Honestly, I agreed with everything you said. I like how you explained your reasoning through God's word. Also, I think it's great that you don't swear or any of those things. So many people do and I often question why? Anyway, this was amazing to read. Great job!
