The Graced Misfit

Hello and welcome to my blog. 🙂

I am a twenty something year old daughter of the Most High God and this blog is about my journey to owning my identity in Christ.

You see, for the longest time I fought against the way I always seemed to stick out like a sore thumb, in every setting. I tried nearly everything, just to fit in. Fortunately God stepped in in time and helped me understand that I was meant to be different. And so through faith I began to comprehend that by God’s grace, I am a misfit for Him. Once lost, now found; formerly clueless, now increasingly grounded; I am the graced misfit.

I am by no means perfect, far from it. Each day I’m discovering more and more what it means to be a stranger in this earth. This blog is all about my journey to being the devoted ambassador of Christ that I was created to be.

Do come along with me on this journey and feel free to share your lessons, thoughts, challenges, victories, anything, as we go along.

    Ok, I can comment!

    I was also a misfit, still am in so many ways..i dont fit in, my ideas don’t fit in, the way I talk don’t fit in..thank God that He has taken me from the point where I badly want to fit in, and now I know it’s okay to stand out.
    Sometimes, when I click with someone, it’s mostly a believer, why? Because both our minds are being renewed…. we are lights in Christ, we naturally don’t blend in.

    Welcome to the blogosphere, I hope you stay and grow and bless us continually with God’s words in you.
    *hugs and hugs*

    Frances!! *dancing* It’s such a honour to have you here.

    Yes, I get what you mean about standing out… And that’s why you’re Frances and you make such a difference through your ministry! I doubt that would be the case if you fitted right in with everybody else. It’s always a joy to meet a fellow misfit whose differences gel with your own, awesome feeling! 🙂

    Again, thank you for the warm welcome. Amen, amen and amen to that prayer. *plenty hugs right back*

    How come I didn’t see this post the first time I visited? This is beautiful. Sweetie, God is still working on you. When He is done, my oh my, the world will know that somebody from heaven is indeed living on earth.

    Once again, welcome to the blogosphere!

      Thank you SO much Amaka, you’re such a darling. I’m going to hold on to those words. A million thanks for all the support, I appreciate you.

    Beautiful blog, beautiful writer and beautiful words!!!
    I think the trying to fit in thing happened to the best of us at one stage of our lives when we didn’t know ‘whats up’
    Now as I draw closer to God, I want to yell….”Do you know what’s up?? Jesus is what’s up! Jesus is the real deal. Jesus is life!”
    Okay, I may sound like a maniac but that’s what his love and mercy shows. Sometimes I look back at my life and I’m like was God just shaking his head at me that time when I felt somehow or silently ashamed to talk about him so that I wouldn’t be termed Jesus freak? But now, I talk about him in my writings and whenever I get the chance. He’s like the air I breathe and I can’t even imagine how I tried doing life without him. Ever…

    I’m glad to stand out. I’m glad He called me light bearer. Jesus said they would hate us because the world hated Him. I’ve got Jesus so I’ve really got nothing else to lose. If I didn’t have him now, ehen, that would mean the end for me.

    So here’s cheers to not wanting to blend in anymore. To the Jesus misfits, the women who are blessed to have been chosen by Him. For we didn’t chose him, but He chose us. And that’s just all shades of awesome.

    First time here and I’m loving it 🙂

      I read your message three times and got something new each time.
      I like you, Itunu; and I’m not just saying. Your passion for Christ is contagious, please keep it that way. xxx
      I’m looking forward to learning from you as we walk along the narrow way. 😘

    wow, this is my story. Honestly, I thank God I saw that light that drew me away from the darkness I was drowning in. The need to fit in and to be among my peers or the people I saw in the TV. I never recognised my uniqueness and my peculiarity. I never saw the need to look inwards to see that beauty that God placed in me even before I came into this world. I never saw the need to be unapologetic for being who I am.
    I am on this same journey of self-discovery and I wish us good things as we thread through this exciting path with the help of God. Love ur blog already and I look forward to many more posts that I can relate to.
