Your presence makes such a difference! You matter to your family and friends, you matter at work and in your community, and you matter to me. I can’t see you, but I wrote this for you. See how much you matter? Your life is more important than you realize.
And you matter to God. He not only sees you, He knows your name. He knew your name before you or even your parents did! God knows every detail of your life, body, mind, personality, achievements, regrets, and future. He knows everything about you. Why? Because you matter to Him.
Don’t believe anyone who says you’re unlovable, unworthy, or unimportant.
Avoid the trap of relying on others for your sense of self-worth. Don’t look to a relationship, job, body, house, or children to give you your identity. You are not those things. You are not what people, possessions or places say about you.
When you root your identity in Jesus’ love for you — when you see and experience how much you matter to Him — you’ll have an easier time coping with the hard parts of life.
Yes, you’ll still feel grief and pain. Yes, you’ll still struggle with health issues, relationship problems, family troubles, and losses that break your heart. But if you set your identity on Jesus and trust that God is working all things together for those who believe, then you’ll have the energy and strength you need to move forward.
