A few years ago when I was going through a stack of scrapbooks and albums that my dear friends had carefully put together and saved from their childhood. I came across one of my favourite handmade cards and noticed these words written in yellow pencil at the bottom of the card: โ€œI feel like we are somebody important, and I know that we areโ€. When I read those words, I thought, โ€œWhat was I thinking as a little person that caused them to write thatโ€? At first, I thought it was cute and it made me chuckle, but those words kept going through my mind over and over. โ€œWhat was I thinkingโ€?



And finally I realized that inside every one of us, even as little children, the voice of God is saying, โ€œYou are made in My image. You are valuable, you are significant, and you are important in this lifeโ€. But sometimes life tries to drown out that voice and devalue us. Unfair things happen. People talk negatively about us. Somebody walks out of our life. I realize now that struggles and problems try to silence His voice, and we have to allow that voice to be strong in us. What really matters is who you are. You may feel insignificant, but God sees you as valuable and exceptional. He sees you as important.



The day that I read that handmade card with my signature butterflies and flowers, I realized just how much I want to keep that childlike wonder in the things of God. I told myself, โ€œI may feel unqualified. I may not have the confidence I wish I had. I may feel as though I lack in my abilities. But God doesnโ€™t see me that way. He sees me as strong, capable, and well able to do what Heโ€™s called me to do. And I know that I amโ€!



How you feel and what life has done to you doesnโ€™t change the value of your life in the eyes of God. Remember, you โ€œare Godโ€™s masterpieceโ€ โ€“ Ephesians 2 verse 10. You are a masterpiece in His eyes. Heโ€™s already qualified you, and Heโ€™s left nothing out of you. Keep His voice clear and free from the debris of life. Spend your life well and make it count. Our great God has put so many amazing things in you, and Heโ€™s put assignments in your path that will make a difference in the lives of the people you love. He โ€œhas created you anew in Christ Jesus, so you can do the good things He planned for you long agoโ€. How you live your life matters.

Donโ€™t lose the wonder of what God has put in you!ย

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
