I Want to be Unique!

The contest:
Five minutes.
Most unique rock.
Within the five minutes I spotted several that I thought looked interesting, and I even picked up three or four others. But at the end of the five minutes I decided this one was the most unique. What made me pick this one up? What about it drew my eyes? As the waves of Lake Michigan kept rolling over all the rocks, my eyes were constantly scanning for something different. Color was the thing that caught my eye most of the time. This one had a yellow tone to it. Looking at it even from a distance, I noticed the beautiful black stripe on it. None of the other rocks I saw had that definite of a stripe or that boldness of contrasting colors. So I chose this one.
My desire is to be like this rock. I want to be unique. I want to stand out. I want my love for Jesus and people to be as bold as that black stripe.
 I noticed that this rock was that it was more colorful when it was wet than when it was dry. If it had been dry when I first saw it, I don't think I would've even given it a second thought. The water made it shiny and beautifully bold.
If I'm dry, I'll just blend in with the world. In order to be unique and stand out, I must be constantly submerging myself in the Living Water, who is Jesus. The more time I spend with Him and the more I get to know Him, the more I will shine and uniquely stand out!
