You Matter. You’re Seen. You’re Loved.

We are dreamed up in God’s heart, formed by His hands, and placed in this world for a purpose.

Maybe you’re in a season of rocking babies or caring for aging parents or working on the big project in the office with the door closed. Maybe what you do feels invisible at times. If so, then I want to say, “What’s visible isn’t more valuable.”

God sees us in the shadows of others who seem to be standing more in the spotlight, during the midnight hours meeting deadlines, and in the kitchen making scrambled eggs. God sees all that we do out of our loving hearts as beautiful and precious and worthwhile. The less-visible parts of life aren’t second place; they are sacred space.

It’s almost silent in my house this morning. The only noise I hear is the buzz of the fan above my head. It seems no one sees me right now. But God does, and He calls me beloved. He tells me that what I do matters. He reminds me I have a purpose and I don’t have anything to prove.

Wherever you are right now, the same is true for you.
