You are meant for greatness…You were created for something much more than ordinary. Your life holds within more purpose than you can fathom. You have the potential to impact, change, influence, and save the lives of those around you. Whether that be through your vocation, ministry, friendships, experiences, adventures, chance, or destiny. You are here for something you may never be able to understand, but will fulfill to it’s greatest potential if you find your indemnity in whom you were created to be. You were created to love, support, encourage, befriend, and lead those around you in hopes the same is done to you. You were created to display love in tangible ways, reaching the world in these small but mighty ways. Accept this purpose, realizing that it is to be used to show others theirs.
You are valued…You are valued beyond measure. Valued by those around you, appreciated for the various things that you contribute to family, friends, acquaintances, and even strangers. Your time, effort, and attention are not taken for granted, but rather recognized by each individual you come into contact with. Your presence in this world places value upon you that is immeasurable. Never doubt that.
You have beauty…You have beauty, but not only physical beauty, but beauty within your inner being. It shows through your smile and shines through your eyes. It is revealed through every word your tongue forms, and touches even those unable to realize or appreciate it. Beauty that cannot be explained because it stems from deep within you and expands outwardly.
You are cherished and love…You are surrounded by people placed into your life to do just this. People who know you and others who don’t, that can see the purpose and value and beauty your life contains, and love you for it. Others who see more-the dark places that sometimes you would rather no one witness-and nevertheless love you just as much. You are loved in such an incredible regard that you were created, given life, to live and to serve.
Your life has direction…Those around you have been precisely placed into the position they are meant for within your life, but you have also crossed their path at exactly the intended point of intersection. There was a plan behind every event of your life as you know it, and is a plan behind every event to come. No one walks into or out of your life on accident. Moments aren’t by mistake, and memories don’t happen without reason. You are living in the direction intended.
You are known…Being known, this can take on many meanings. What I mean is this: You are noticed. Even when you feel as if no one takes time to see you. You are prayed for and cared about. From both near and far people see who you are and who you are becoming. You are not just another shadow on the ground in passing, but rather you are influential through your presence in people’s lives. You are known even when it may feel like all have forgotten you.
Your life…Your life is precious. Your life is special. Your life is set apart, and seen, and treasured simply because it is the only life of you that there will ever be on this earth. Don’t take a single second for granted. Live into every opportunity and experience that you encounter. Invest into others along the way. Be present in silent moments and enjoy the time that passes while surrounded by those who love you. Never lose hope, for it is evident in every breath you take and give. The rhythm of your heart is an anthem of hope, a reason to live looking forward. Anticipate what is to come knowing there is purpose in all of it.
