You are a part of a much bigger and much more beautiful picture than you can imagine. I hope that you realize this and realize that your life matters. It matters to your Heavenly Father; it matters to your family and it should matter to YOU. Jesus teaches that if we try to hang on to our lives, we will lose them; and if we lose our lives by giving them over to Him, we will save ourselves. This might seem contradictory but it is not because life really does not begin until we are born again through Christ. My prayer is that every human being will come to know who they are meant to be in Christ, giving themselves over to HIS calling upon their lives. Have you done that? Have you submitted your will to His? Do you truly trust God with every facet of your life? Believe it or not, it is possible and the key is Jesus Christ Himself. In all we do, just as scripture teaches, “Seek the kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” (Matt 6:33 NLT) Pray – now.
