There are people in this world that feel unimportant. They've been made to feel unloved, that they're just an annoyance, that they're basically worthless. They may compare themselves with others, and feel that they're not as good, because they don't think they're as pretty or handsome, because they feel ignored by people around them, etc. Some think that there's nothing special about themselves.

But that's just not the case. There is only one you. There has never been another you in the past, and there will never be another in the future. You are unique... special. One-of-a-kind things are extremely valuable, and you are no exception. You're worth more than any precious gem, any amount of gold, and all the money in the world.

The amazing thing about Jesus dying for people's sins is that He left the perfection of Heaven to come to Earth. He suffered both incredible physical pain, and the unspeakable torment of separation from God the Father when he took on the sins of mankind on the cross. He did all of that for you, because He loves you. Because you're precious to Him. He wouldn't have gone through all that if it wasn't true. You may feel completely alone on this Earth, but there is One Who is reaching out to you rigt now. He will welcome you into His arms like in the story of the prodigal son, when he returned home. While he was still far away, his father ran to meet him, overjoyed, and smothered him with affection.

We cannot earn and don't deserve His great mercy. The only way for that to be the case is to be perfect... to never break God's laws. None of us are able to do that. He offers eternal life as a free gift to all who will call on the name of Jesus. You don't need to fear what comes after this life. bluesky07.deviantart.com/art/H… And once He has adopted you as His child, He will never abandon you. Ever.

:clap: These words are such a blessing. Sometimes, for some of us, it can be easy to believe these good things about others...but it can be so hard to believe it about ourselves. It helps to have someone remind us.

This was partially inspired by a Christian comedian I saw on TV recently. His name is John Branyan, and he has a YouTube channel. He was really funny! Something he said at the end of his set was the inspiration for part of this entry.
Thank you, and thanks for the fave! I hope this blessed you. :)
