You matter…..

Have you ever felt like you just didn’t belong or like you couldn’t find your place?   I have felt this way at times recently.  I know I am not alone because I know we fight the same enemy.  Satan is the enemy of our souls and he wants us sad, depressed, and miserable.  However, Jesus tells us in John 10:10 that He came to give us life more abundantly.  I love that verse, it has always meant a lot to me since I learned it when I was in ninth grade.  I love in 1 Peter 5:7, where we are told to cast our cares on him because he cares for us. Who cares?  God cares!!

My friend, if you are finding yourself in a place that you feel unwanted, unneeded or unloved may you find the peace that you are where you are supposed to be.  I know our flesh calls out to us to run, give up or quit but I don’t feel like that is always the best answer.  Many times in our lives we have to wait and trust that God is leading us and He has us in the palm of his hand.  As your going through whatever you may be going through may you feel the peace and grace that comes from knowing and trusting Him.


I pray that you will find comfort in these scriptures and know that you truly do matter 🙂

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10 

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27

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. Jeremiah 29:11

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

I call on the LORD in my distress, and he answers me. Psalm 120:1
