Making Sure You Matter!


Do you ever feel insignificant, under-appreciated, uncertain and worthless?  Most all of us at some point in our lives – will feel this way.  It’s not that we aren’t doing anything.  It’s not that we aren’t making a contribution.  It’s just that it really seems that our actions seem to be making very little difference or having very little impact on the world around us!  It would appear that no one around us seems to notice, care or appreciate what we do.  We can’t help but wonder should we even be doing anything at all.  We question in our heads:  “Is my effort really just a big waste of time?”

If you are feeling this way, then the most important question for you to ask and answer is this:  “Are You Doing God’s Will?”  Are you doing the thing that God has called and gifted you to do?  It does not matter how small or insignificant it may seem to the rest of the world.  If you are doing the thing that God has called you to do, then regardless of it’s size according to the world – it is a big deal!  Don’t allow others inattention to the details of what you are doing for God take away from it’s meaning and power! 

Others may not see, recognize or appreciate your labor and contribution, but God knows what is going on and He has promised that He would finish the good work that He started in you.  Are you doing what God has called you to do?  If the answer is yes, then stay after it for God’s glory and everybody’s blessing!  If you discover that you are not doing the thing that God has called and gifted you to do, then make whatever changes you need to make and head your life in the right direction and get started!

God loves you!  You matter!  And what you do matters!  It matters more than most of us realize!
