You Can Make a Difference

Do you feel as though you are nothing?  Do you feel like no one sees you?  I have and continue to feel like this occasionally.  Every person fills a position in this world that only they can fill.  Their life gives the world meaning, they give it volume.  You are not a waste of space.  Yes, I know that there are others out there that may say the opposite about you.  But know this, if they only speak negatively about you, about the world, about everything, they themselves feel empty.  They only try to give their lives volume by filling themselves with hate.  But you… you can make a difference.

To that someone out there who feels empty, as though they are nothing: You are not alone.  You can count me in as your friend.  You also have someone who is always there no matter what, someone who loves every fiber of your being 24/7.  That someone is Jesus.  No, I am not a crazy person. No, I don’t say this as a cliche when I say that Jesus loves you.  I am not going to stuff religion down your throat.  I am saying this because I believe it and I have experienced His love in my life.

Just in the last year, I went through separation, loneliness, depression, and worthlessness.  I felt as though no one cared.  I didn’t want to live.  At times, my emotions were so intense.  I felt angry and sad.  Why am I going through this? Why do I feel alone?  Even though I had so much support from friends, I felt as though they had abandoned me. I felt as though God had left me.  It was the darkest time in my life.  When people would say that they loved me, that Jesus loved me, I felt like it was all a lie. I would go through several days of feeling hopeful only to sink deeper and deeper in what felt like a black hole.  It was like life was one big rollercoaster ride.

Eventually, I started to find hope and happiness.  I have discovered that on the days I do feel good, I can make a difference in my own life, in other’s lives.  I can give this world more volume – fill the emptiness with good, happiness, and positivity.  There are so many others that are worse off than me, I can choose to focus on positivity and showing the world that I am truly worth something.  However, to show people your worth, you must first believe it yourself.

So, my words to you today: BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE LOVED. YOU ARE WORTH IT ALL. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE UP.  BELIEVE IT OR NOT, YOU GIVE THIS WORLD VOLUME.  YOU FILL THE SPOT ONLY YOU CAN FILL – YOUR SMILE, CHARACTER, AND YOUR ORIGINALITY IS SOMETHING NO ONE ELSE CAN HAVE BECAUSE YOU ARE MORE THAN ONE IN A MILLION.

  1. I am so encouraged and inspired when a young person like yourself can write with such genuine openness, great wisdom and humble compassion. I’m very impressed, and my heart is touched by the balm of Jesus you offer. At 65, a devout Christian woman, I have this year been plunged back into depression I believed God had healed in 2011. Perhaps you can imagine how that feels like a great spiritual failure. But God doesn’t ask me to “figure it out and get back on track”–He only asks that I trust Him each day, as He loves me back into peace and joy. I do know that the depression comes from feeling that I am NOT valued by people–so your post spoke specifically to that. I can’t thank you enough, dear one. God is telling me I must keep repeating every word He says about how much HE values us–never mind other people. May He bless you so abundantly, pressed down and spilling over. You are a gift, a gem, an angel ❤

    1. Thank you for your kind words! I understand what you said about feeling like a failure – like I’ve failed myself, God, and my friends. Praise God for healing! I am not 100% today, but that doesn’t mean I can’t use my experience to help others. For me, acceptance and being valued was and still is one of my biggest struggles. When your family and friends are not there for you, always remember that Jesus is right there beside you and taking care of you like Psalm 27:10 says. I know there are days when it feels like even God has left you, but be assured He hasn’t! I’ll be praying for you tonight, friend. ❤

      1. Bless your darling heart ❤ I do usually remember that JESUS is very near, for I practice God's Presence each day…but every now and then when "everything" seems wrong, I half-teasingly ask Him if he's on vacation in Tahiti 🙂 🙂 Thanks for your prayers–God bless you BIG & MUCHLY!
