It’s easy to get lost in a world of billions of people.
One person.That’s all you and I can be.
There are celebrities and professional athletes that standout in the crowd in our world. Most of us don’t. We are the ones who seem invisible to the world around us. We work our jobs and live our lives hoping we have enough paycheck to pay our bills. It’s a routine that I often get tired of doing.
You and I may have times that we feel that we are nobodies. We aren’t rich and we aren’t famous for anything. Honestly I wonder sometimes how some celebrities became famous.
The good news is that our creator says that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14) That sounds pretty awesome but what does that mean to us? It means that God knows us intimately and personally. There is nothing about us that He doesn’t know. He even knows how many hairs we have on our head. (Luke 12:7) That can sound pretty unsettling that someone can know us that well.
it’s nice to know weren’t aren’t a nobody. He’s even interested in us talking to Him too. I know there are times when my voice either isn’t heard, not important or drowned out by others but God hears us and He’s interested in the details of our lives.
If you aren’t into God or the Bible, you still aren’t a nobody. Who you are is important. We all have the ability to make the world around us a better place. You don’t have to be the worlds’ definition of being a somebody. We can all make or break someone’s day. Being nice isn’t that difficult but it seems to be in short supply.
We may feel lost at times but we can find our direction. Sometimes we have to find our purpose. We all have a purpose for being here. We don’t have to be a nobody. We can be somebody with a purpose.
Don’t know what your purpose is? There is no need to stress out about it. It will find you. Don’t force it or allow someone to tell you what you should do. I was a bit anxious when I was growing up that I had to be a preacher since my father and grandfather were both preachers in the family. I was even named after my grandfather. I tried it but it didn’t feel right. It wasn’t me. Then I realized that the calling to be a preacher wasn’t something that was hereditary. Believe me – it takes a special type of personality to be a preacher. I realized that I did not possess that personality and did not have that calling. I had to be me. I couldn’t be another Milton Sweat or Billy Hooper.
Don’t let people make you feel like a nobody. People are quick to judge and classify you based on outward things such as your job, money, looks, etc. People can only make you feel like a nobody if you let them. Don’t give them the power to do that. You know you. If they really care about you, they would treat you right. Always remember that people’s opinion of you doesn’t mean they are right.
Let people think what they want. Let them underestimate you. Just be you. You can’t be anybody else. Something you say or do can change make an impact on someone’s life. Look for opportunities to do that today.
