The Lord has made everything for his own purpose. Proverbs 16:4
You are not an accident. There are accidental parents, but there are no accidental births. There are illegitimate parents, but there are no illegitimate children. There are unplanned pregnancies, but there are no unpurposed people. God wanted you in this world.
You are not an accident.
I know that is just a simple statement. It’s so simple in fact that you can think of it as something that a child might say. Many of our children are headed back to school or have gone back to school. Some of us think our only value to the world is that we are someone’s parent, someone;s spouse or someone’s partner.
Those titles are great but they are just that. They are not what makes you matter. You matter because you are a human being. You are a person. You are worthy of respect. You are unique and your life has meaning. We have different abilities and talents.
You are an active, living, breathing human being. That should be enough. You take up space on this earth; not useless space, but space that matters; space that can make a difference. You light up the world with your body and soul, and above all, you are ALIVE. You are alive and this only means one thing; you are yet to accomplish everything you need to.
Don’t at any second belittle yourself. You matter, not just to yourself but to others as well.
