Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version (NIV)
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
YOU ARE IMPORTANT ~
I hope you see yourself important. You were created by God, a king of all times and your heavenly father. A father figure may pop into your brain right now of the man you call Father. That may be a good experience or that may bring some sorrows to your mind. We each have experiences growing up that change us from within a home. Then the word of God comes into play and some have the best life ever, while others struggle with their childhood. One of the greatest statements to me is this: YOU ARE IMPORTANT. Never doubt that your life makes a difference and somebody looks at you as a example in this big world. A good beginning each day of life is to read scriptures.
2 Timonthy 3:16-17 (NIV)
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
YOU ARE IMPORTANT ~
Equip yourself with words from the Bible. Memorize scriptures to grow from daily. Then you will know how to face this day with a joyful heart and keep that when trials come into yourself. Think about how the weather changes daily. It can be sunny and nice, but the next day brings rain. It is the rain that waters the ground, fills the lakes and helps flowers to grow. Sun is needed, rain is needed and the outcome is beautiful. We have greens hills, full lakes and no water shortage. Their is so much more to the sun, rain and time. It all changes and we experiences seeing new things with our eyes daily.
As I grow older, I see the importance of a new day. The value of time and what I do with my time. I value family and friendships far more than I used to. I ask God daily to use my life in the ways he wants to help others. Can I be a light to someone today and can I balance out my time? Sure I can and I will do that each day of my life. God created my fingers to type and my life to shine with hope. I know that God helped me during the dark times of my life and continues to do that today. I will forever be grateful that God took my sins away. Helped me to see a brighter day and to cherish this life he has given me.
Say this with me: I AM IMPORTANT
When I was in college, one of my teachers said: if you want to remember something, say it three times to yourself. Like this: I am important, I am important, I am important and it will stick in your mind. So I started doing that in college. Often a sentence is followed by a question. I am important, but why? The answer is simple, you are a child of God, you are a child of God, you are a child of God and he continues to shine through you if you allow him too.
Keeping a good attitude is far greater than gold my friends. You just look at like different and you can look into the mirror to see that face that God created. There is only one you and you are important. Never compare your life, because you never know the depth of someone else's life. You were never created to be anyone but you. You are have a story to share about your journey and that is valuable.
Hebrews 4:16 (NIV)
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
I AM IMPORTANT ~
YES YOU ARE
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
