It’s difficult for us to understand how God can see everyone and notice just you. But he does. You matter to God.

There’s lots of pain in the world and if we’re honest, we know that someone’s hurting more than us. When I think of the famine and disease of third world nations and children or adults suffering abuse or addiction, it helps put things into perspective.

It’s not that my pain or your pain isn’t valid, but pain has a way of consuming us if we let it.


Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

– The Bible
