To the one who spoke and set the sun ablaze. To the one who stopped the storm and walked the waves. To the one who took the tree so He could say. You matter, I hope you know you matter. -Matter// for King & Country
Put your hand over your heart. You feel that? It’s called “a beating heart.” When it is time for it to stop beating, that’s when God will call you home. Until then, you are meant to live.
I know it’s hard. I know life isn’t far. I know it would be easier to give up. But nothing, that is worth doing, or having is easy.
You have a purpose. God has ordained all the days of your life (Psalm 139:16). Up until the last second of your life on earth. You will always have purpose, He will always give you purpose. God will put things in front of you to do. You will always play a part in The Kingdom. But you have to stay alive to do those things.
“Why should I? I’m worthless.” Hear me, and hear me loud and clear: YOU ARE NOT WORTHLESS. YOU HAVE PURPOSE! God’s word is true, and He states it. It’s Satan who says the opposite and tells you lies. He’s the one who is telling you, you’re worthless and have no purpose.
To stay alive you have to stand on the truth, not lies. But how do you tell the difference? Read God’s Word. Believe what He says is true. He loves you more than you can dream or comprehend, let alone imagine. God loves YOU!
To the cutter: Jesus was pierced for our transgressions, He payed the price for you, so you don’t even have to think about picking up that razor, and cutting yourself. He payed the price, so you can have freedom (Isaiah 53:5)!
To the person thinking about killing themselves: God loves you so much that He gave up His One and only Son. So that you could live with Him one day in Heaven. So you could know Him, have a relatioship with Him. He will give you life. No one can take you out of His hands (John 3:16; John 10:18).
To the one who doesn’t think they have purpose: God has beautiful plans for you! Plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).
And to the one who can relate to all those things I have just described: ALL OF THOSE VERSES APPLY TO YOU. Hold onto His promises.
Life isn’t always about happiness, however, it’s about the peace that lays within you. Seek the peace, for its the peace that will calm you in the middle of your storms. Who is this peace? It’s Christ.
So to those who feel like they have no strength, rely on Jesus. His strength will give you hope, a new direction. Jesus is the key. He loves you more than you could ever imagine. Hang on to the promises and let go of everything else, and He’ll hang on to you.
Love and peace to all.
