I like to think of humankind as a stained glass window. In the dark the window is colorless, but in the sun, the same light shines through each piece uniquely revealing God's glory.
What color and shape are you? No two pieces are identical. God has created you to reflect His glory in a way that only you can! Embrace your differentness as a unique way for God to express Himself.
Some people are always trying to make themselves nothing. This is a misunderstanding of Scripture. There is a self that we must die to (the sin nature) but there is a self that we are called to put on and live out of (Ephesians 4:22-24). The new nature is our most true identity (Romans 7:17; Romans 7:22; Romans 7:25). Sanctification is learning to move toward and live out of the "real you." God wants to shine through your special shape and color. Allow Him to do it!
