being balanced

As I was going to spend some time with friends from high school that I don’t see often, the Lord seemed to place a prayer on my lips of which I didn’t realize the depth until I had spoken it aloud in the car. 

“Lord, help me not to compromise myself simply to fit in.  Yet help me not emphasize my differences so as to stand out.”

Letting one’s light shine is a balancing act in itself.  I don’t want it to be a mere flicker that will die out soon, yet I don’t want it to be a spotlight that seeks to highlight everyone’s faults.  I’m seeking for balance without falling into mediocrity.
