Did you know that you are amazing, beautiful, talented, and compassionate? That’s right, you heard me. You are all those things and infinitely more. You just don’t give yourself enough credit. Ok so you have been picked on, or had a rumor started about you. Maybe you didn’t make the soccer or volleyball team. Perhaps, the guy or girl you like doesn’t like you, or everything seems to be going wrong and you can’t seem to get out of your funk. Maybe its money troubles or an injury that is keeping you from doing something you want to do.
Yep, you feel like the world is caving in around you, nothing is going right and you can’t believe that this is your life. I have one thing to say to you….STOP THAT… You heard me. I said “STOP THAT.” Life is a long complicated road that takes us down so many different paths. It is not about fame, fortune, popularity, or skill. Those pieces may play a role in your life, but they do not and should not rule it.
You my dear one are so precious, you are the apple of someone’s eye. You are important to so many people, you just need to open your eyes and look around at those that hold you as such an important part of their lives. You make a difference and have so many things to offer this world; you just need to find the right place to use them. You are loving, caring, honest, and motivated.
So many times in life, we are dragged down by the people around us and the direction we are headed it. We don’t stop to think that words are just that, their words. Someone is spreading a rumor about you at school or work. You know the truth, so do the following, write down the rumor that is being spread. There, you have it in front of you and you see, they are just words on a piece of paper. They are mean, nasty words but just that, they are words. Why do you let them hurt you? Why do they matter so much? Watch this. Take the paper and tear it up into little tiny pieces. Oh look, the words are gone. Just as fast as they came, they are gone.
Money is an important part of life, but sometimes we take it for granted what we have and what we need versus what we want. There will be tough times in our lives when we don’t have all the money that we may need or want but we must trust that we can make it through. God doesn’t give us want we want, he gives us what we need and it is up to us to figure it out. Don’t let money or lack of it, change who you are.
Each of us is given God given talents, sometimes we want them to be something they are not. We want to be awesome at a sport or a hobby and no matter how hard we work at it, we are just not as good as others around us. We try so hard it hurts, but it’s ok. You have to realize the things that you do well. Take an inventory of the things are you do well and you will see that you excel in places that others don’t. Maybe it’s making movies, or sewing, maybe it’s writing or public speaking, maybe it’s one of the most overlooked and underused skills in the world the art of listening to others and being there for them. You have to look inside yourself to find your God given talents and use them to the best of your ability.
You are a child of God. He loves you more than anything and will never leave you. So when you feel like the world is caving in and things just aren’t going the way you planed. YOU need to hold your head up high, take a deep breath and remember that God loves you so much. Remember that they are only words, and that money isn’t everything. Remember that you have skills and talents that God has given you. You are a child of God and he is always there and ready to help you find where you truly belong. Keep God in your heart always so that when worries and trouble is near, you know who to call on. YOU need to call on HIM. To him you are precious, and loved. You are everything to him.
