Do you ever feel like you don’t really matter?
Like all of your effort is for nothing.
Thoughts like this go through my mind from time to time, “Ciara, there are 7 billion people in the world….do you honestly think you have anything to offer.”
And then I realize it’s Satan trying to mess with me.
His only job is to destroy people, and he’s had YEARS of practice so he can be pretty convincing….and annoying. But please don’t feel bad if you let stupid thoughts from him ruin your day from time to time. I’ve been there. But after I leave the pity party for one 😉 I remember that God created me for a specific reason.“The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out.” Proverbs 20:5.
Your life matters to God. He created you for a purpose. With intention. With beautiful design. He’s made no mistakes.
He wants you to thrive in ways that you’ve never imagined.
“The righteous will thrive like a green leaf. not just survive. but to have a life to the fullest.” Proverbs 11:28
I recommend this book for a deeper dive….you can purchase it for less than $10 here!
It’s packed with colorful writing, practical examples, fun quotes, and discussion questions to help you truly live like you matter.
A life where you don’t just wake up and fulfill the mundane duties of the day. You don’t have to “live for the weekend.” You don’t need constant escape.
A life where you don’t just survive….you thrive!
