YOU matter…

You MatterProverbs 16:9
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.

Today matters… but more importantly YOU matter!

I know you may not have all the things you want in life.  You may not even be in the place you thought you would be by now.  But you matter!  You are not here on the earth just to suck up air; you are here for a purpose.  Your purpose is the reason for which you exist… the reason God created you…

I know for a fact that God did not create you for you.  He created you for someone else.  There is someone at this very moment that needs you.  There is someone who needs your smile, your kindness, your forgiveness, your support, your words of encouragement, your loving correction, your presence…  There is someone who needs you to be bold and stand up and be You!  The person you were created to be…

So stop already with the excuses!  You know what I am talking about… those statements you whisper to yourself when you think no one is listening…

I am not (fill in the blank) enough…

Guess what?  God is listening.  The Creator, Almighty God, is listening to you.  He hears your excuses and His heart is grieved.  Why?  Because He created and designed you just the way He wanted… and you are already equipped to fulfill your purpose.  Everything you need has been prepared.  All you have to do is say Yes and then put one foot in front of the other; follow the instructions that He has already given you.  The Bible says that the Lord establishes your steps!

What’s holding you back from reaching out to others?  What’s holding you back from doing what is in your heart?  Could it be you…

Remember to be REAL…
