Different 

This song by Micah Tyler, from the very first time I heard it, grabbed at me. The raw emotion and realness of the lyrics and music are so powerful. I just feel such a connection with the words. It kinda seems out of place, though, in a world where society believes if you aren’t exactly like everyone else, you are an anomaly or a misfit. As Christians (or more specifically, Apostolics), we were created to stand out. Yet, so many among us try to be cookie-cutter Christians. How can you truly do anything for God by blending in and seeking to look and/or act like everyone else? Especially when Jesus is the one we are supposed to be modeling our life after?

Sorry for being extra deep and spiritual today. I haven’t done an inspirational/motivating post in a while, and I was feeling it, sooo.🙄💁 Guess you’ll just have to deal with it.😉😂

I don’t wanna see anymore, give me a vision
That you could move this heart, to be set apart
I don’t need to recognize the man in the mirror
And I don’t wanna trade Your plan for something familiar
I can’t waste a day, I can’t
stay the same

I wanna be different
I wanna be changed
‘Til all of me is gone
And all that remains
Is a fire so bright
The whole world can see
That there’s something different
So come and be different
In me

And I don’t wanna spend my life stuck in a pattern
And I don’t wanna gain this world
but lose what matters
And so I’m giving up everything because

I wanna be different
I wanna be changed
‘Til all of me is gone
And all that remains
Is a fire so bright
The whole world can see
That there’s something different
So come and be different, oh

I know, that I am far from perfect
But through You, the cross still says I’m worth it
So take this beating in my heart and
Come and finish what You started
When they see me, let them see You
‘Cause I just wanna be different, yea

I wanna be different
I wanna be changed
‘Til all of me is gone
And all that remains
Oh, is a fire so bright
The whole world can see
That there’s something different
So come and be different
I just wanna be different
So You could be different
In me

  1. Seriously this song means so much to me in so many ways! I don’t want to be a person who looks like the world when I say I’m not part of the world. This song is my prayer.
