I felt like I needed to share something that has been on my heart lately. I have been rereading my almost illegible scribbles in my journal on this experience for a few weeks, trying to decide whether I should share it or not. I finally gave in and did it… so here it is.
For a few months now, I had been feeling very much like I don’t matter, or that I am a failure, that I don’t fit in, and am insignificant and unknown. I have felt very lost and unsure what I was supposed to be doing, and how I fit into His plan for me.
Then Jesus spoke this to me in a dream:
“You are not famous. No one knows your name. But I see you. I know your heart. — I know EXACTLY who you are.”
I can’t remember much what the rest of the dream was about, but I remember His words, clear as day.
Those simple sentences still bring tears to my eyes as I type them. I know the weight of the truth they hold. As I continued to meditate on them, I couldn’t help feeling like this word was not just for me, but for some other sweet souls out there… wondering if they matter, feeling a little lost like me.
If this is you, I KNOW He wants you to hear this:
- That He couldn’t care less how successful you are,
- How popular you are,
- How well you have it together.
- He sees your faithfulness in the day-to-day,
- your hard-work and dedication to the little things, the obedience when no one else sees.
- He is proud of you for the simple things you do that no one will ever say thank you for.
- He understands you, He loves you, & He KNOWS YOU.
I am so grateful that we serve a God that sees us like this. It is humbling and awesome — and I can’t even comprehend, much less describe how much He loves you and I. Please be encouraged and remember that you do matter, and you are not alone.
