BIBLE TEXT: Matthew 10:29-30: What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.
PERSONAL REFLECTION: So as I sit down to write this I really have no idea what I am going to write. I asked God, “Why did you ask me to do this? I don’t have anything to share? Nothing happens to me that is huge or life changing.” That is when I heard that still small voice saying, “Everything about you is special, everything that happens to you is significant.” I realized I don’t think very highly of myself or the things I have overcome or walked through. Who knows what small thing I might say that might help or encourage someone. So what I have for my Life family today is: you are special, you are significant, you matter!!!!
PERSONAL APPLICATION: So how do I apply that to my life? By getting up every day and reminding myself that Jesus came to earth and died for me. He loves me that much so I owe it to Him to love myself even half as much as He loves me.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, thank you for the reminder that I am special and that what I have to say matters. Please use my life to minister to others speak through me and shine through me. And most of all help me love me! In Jesus name I pray, Amen
