…we are significant

A friend posted this on their facebook page… It so resonated with me I had to share it.  Thanks, Chad Chriestenson…

“We should never feel small or insignificant.  Yes, it’s true our planet is but a speck in a grand, majestic sea of stars and wonder.  A universe filled with many celestial objects and wonders that utterly dwarf our earth. But should we feel pointless compared to this?  No!   For out of this entire plane of existence, God holds you more precious in his sight than the most brilliant star, the most beautiful galaxy, the most awe inspiring aspects of nature, or even the most valuable jewels. If our God in all of his majesty is that focused on us compared to everything else, why should we worry what tomorrow will bring or if we are ignored?  He is the God who sees us.  The one who sees us as being so valuable that he came to earth to be with us.”

What a perfect thought, especially at this time of year.  So many are lonely at this time of year and feel insignificant.  If you were the only one, Jesus would have come for you.  God with us… Emmanuel.
