Hey you, I don't know if you know this but you are pretty brave. Every day of your life is full of daring and death-defying feats. Like getting out of bed and choosing to smile when you don't feel like it. Like doing it all again just one more time. Like driving to work and choosing to love those kids and those co-workers even if they make it hard. Like putting one foot in front of the other and putting yourself out there and sharing ideas and trying to make a difference. You may think we don't see it. You may think that your life is boring, humdrum, anything but a grand adventure. You're wrong. You're shaking up this world because He's moving through you. You're leaving a little bit of His grace everywhere you go and we need that so much. Your prayers, they matter. The things you dare to bring to His throne of grace and lay down? The things you dare to cry out to Him? Those things make a difference. You make a difference because you dare to be here.
You're fighting battles with the enemy every moment of the day. Don't you dare think you're not worth something. The enemy doesn't bother with people who don't matter. You are loved.
