I love my life: my work, my coffee, my church, my home, & my family. But every so often, I look around and suddenly feel insignificant. Other women seem to be conquering mountains for the kingdom, while I am over here in my running clothes. Some women travel the country or even the world, speaking to and influencing thousands of people, while my own circle of influence seems rather trivial. I start to wonder if i even matter.
It can become a bad habit, weighing our worth and viewing our value through the lens of accomplishments. I know all about this because it was my story for many years! Accomplishing everything that was in front of me! Even worse, we measure our significance by what other people think of us. Fearing man’s opinion above God’s is a perpetual trap. It’s a horrible way to live, always evaluating our importance by the world’s standards.
We are hardly insignificant to our Father. We are his creation- created in his own imagine, “for good works, which God prepared ahead of time” (Eph 2:10)
For every day we walk on this earth, our existence reveals God’s glory. Who we are in Him can help point others to the Creator and their own significance in his eyes. He created us and Came to redeem us, we belong to Him, and He calls us by name. May his voice ring louder than all others. 🙏
