In this world, there are going to be people that are going to try to drag you down. Their goal is to make you feel worthless, while boosting their own ego. They will be quick to point out every flaw that you have and the mistakes that you make. This is a prime example of Satan’s work on earth. Unfortunately Satan’s work is very widely seen and heard on a daily basis.
I have always been on Satan’s hit list, when it comes to feeling worthless. I am not the type of woman that stands out in a crowd. Nobody has ever really taken notice of the things that I would have to say on any subject. I have been treated with respect very little in my life. This made me a prime target for feeling worthless. For far too long, it seems that Satan was winning this war….but I’m starting to fight back!
Since I have been doing extensive reading and studying my bible, I have noticed that those negative feelings are getting less and less. I am beginning to realize that even a insignificant person such as myself has a special purpose on earth. Not as a pawn of Satan, but as a child of God. In Genesis, we are told that God made man in his own image. We, as humans, were created in the likeness of God. Therefore, he lives in us. How can I be worthless when God surly isn’t and he lives in me? The answer is…..I can’t.
I may not know exactly what my purpose on earth is, but I feel assured that God has one for me. Perhaps, one day, I will be able to open my eyes and find it. Perhaps I already have 🙂 With enough reading, studying, and meditation on the word of God, I hope to block Satan completely from stabbing me with his feelings of worthlessness. While others may not see that I have value due to Satan’s influence, I get great comfort from knowing that God sees my value. In the eyes of God, I matter and……..
YOU MATTER 🙂
