I feel like I don’t matter anymore. I mattered before. Once I was loved. I had joy. There was purpose. Someone needed me. But life has been hard and left me scarred. Scarred and scared. The scars are inside. Deep in my heart. I need someone to fix the brokenness. To help me. I don’t know how to ask. I need hope. I feel like I don’t matter anymore.
Is There Any Hope for Me?
I feel like I don’t matter anymore. I hear the lies. They are loud inside my mind. I know they are lies, but I’m too weak to fight. Too beaten down. Heavy and sad. I faintly remember feeling light and happy. It seems like another life. Like another person. Maybe it was. But it was also me. The me that mattered. The me that made a difference. Is there any hope for me? I feel like I don’t matter anymore.
When You’re Treated Like You Don’t Matter
When you are treated like you don’t matter, you begin to believe it. It slowly seeps in. Finds its way to your core. Becomes your foremost thought. It’s a lie that clings like a sticky shroud. Like everyone has left you. Abandoned. Shunned. Alone.
Shunned. Abandoned. Tormented by demons. Literal demons. Seven of them. They overtook her sometimes. People were frightened. She was frightened. She was alone. She felt like she didn’t matter anymore. She understood how you feel.
Then he called her by name. “Mary Magdalene”, he said so gently. How did he know her name? Her real name? Because he made her. He formed her in her mother’s womb. Before she was even born, he had planned her days.
He saw her. Called her. Healed her. Delivered her. Gave her a special place as his follower. Elevated her. Forgave her sins. Fixed her brokenness. Made her new from within. The Savior. The Messiah. The King of Kings. God himself come down from heaven. Jesus Christ. He came to tell her that she was his. She mattered. To tell us we matter. To tell you that you matter.
Why You Matter to God
He sees you. He made you. Gave his life for you. Loves you. He is calling you by name. Formed you in your mother’s womb. Laid out all of your days and recorded them in His book. Created you for a purpose. A reason. You are His. You Matter. There is hope for you. His name is Jesus. He is waiting for you. He is gently calling your name. Listen to His still small voice. Watch the GREAT NEWS FOR YOU Video on this page to know Him as Mary knows Him. As I know Him. As you can also know Him.
Please listen as Max Lucado talks to you about why you matter to God.
Your eyes saw me when I was still an unborn child. Every day of my life was recorded in your book before one of them had taken place.Psalm 139:16
