So many of us get on with our lives and are completely oblivious to the deep hurt that others are experiencing. We might not know about it because people are great at hiding things. Or it might just be that we are too wrapped up in our own lives.
I’ve always been a bit of an introvert and I get when young people tell me that they just don’t feel that they belong. So many people today are struggling with rejection and find themselves in the depths of despair. Slowly but surely they feel that their grip is slipping and they find it harder and harder to hold on, and to keep going. If that’s you, you’re not alone. And you never will be.
I want you to know that things can never be so dark, that it can supersede light. Put your hand on your heart. What you feel there is purpose. Take a deep breathe. What you feel there is life. And when there is life, there is hope. And when there is hope, there is life. You are not done yet. You have been born for a time such as this.
Although this world is in a mess, there are still people who care. I am one of them. My life is a living testimony of someone who didn’t have an ounce of selfworth a while ago. Today, I know who I am and I know I am precious in the eyes of the One who’s opinion really matters – God. I know that doesn’t fix your circumstances. I know it doesn’t make everything right. But when you know that you are precious to God the Father, and that He has a true plan for your life, it gives you hope to keep going. And as you keep going, you begin growing. That soon transferes into confidence that allows you to look at yourself with eyes that are less condemning, and more accepting.
You are beautifully and wonderfully created. Go and live out what you have always been tentative to do. Because God has given you a spirit of boldness. After all you are a creation of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.
