We all want to have worth and we want to believe our existence—our time on this earth—has meaning. Too many times, we look back at our lives and see nothing of value, and too often focus on the mistakes and bad things we’ve done. When our focus is on God, we will begin to see everything has a purpose, and though our contributions may seem small in our eyes—and the eyes of the world—they are important in His eyes.
I hear and read stories all the time about people who were discouraged and defeated, then a small kindness or helping hand gave them new hope and they went on to accomplish their dreams.
When we focus on God, his counsel will stand in our hearts, and He will use us to bless others.
There are many plans in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand. Proverbs 19:21
