Do you feel as if you have no value? Does life seem to prove that you are a nothing?
Do you ever wonder if your life counts for anything? We all struggle, at times, with thoughts that life is meaningless and that our lives actually matter very little to anyone. If we run with this thought we will soon develop feelings of loneliness and despair. Maybe you have even thought that you are so insignificant that it would be better to end your life than to take up space on this planet.
These feelings that you do not count for anything special are not unique to you. Some of the most successful and important people in the world … the A list of celebrities and media darlings … struggle with who they are and why they exist. You can try to prop up yourself by work harder, by taking risks, or by trying to make life as fun as possible. This might bring significance for a time but ultimately it will fail because you know that these accomplishments are meaningless.
So, here’s the deal … you do not find true meaning, life with a purpose, until you turn your live over to the only One who matters and He is Jesus Christ. In order to enter into a relationship with God you have to be perfect because God is perfect and in Him there is absolute love and righteousness. Well, then how can you journey with God when you know that you have fallen woefully short of perfection? The answer is: you can’t. You can’t walk with Him based on your qualifications because you are not perfect; none of us are. We have all fallen short of God’s perfection and that is called sin.
But, God loves you so much that He gave His son, His one and only Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the price for your sin by dying on the cross thousands of years ago and then by bring raised from the dead on the third day. Jesus is alive today. He wants to be in relationship with you. He wants to give you true love and happiness. And only He can give you that because only He is perfect.
Do you really want to find significance and life with meaning? Turn to Jesus Christ. He has a specific plan for your life and He will journey with you. If you are willing to listen and to do what He says, He will guide you through life and even give you life in eternity. Trying to find significance and a life with purpose through your works or through relationships is like chasing after the wind. It will be fun for a short time but at the end of the day you will have nothing to show for it.
So, this is your decision … and you can make a life changing decision just by asking Jesus Christ to come into your life.
As you travel life’s journey, you can take the road from insignificance to significance. Pray this prayer with us...
"Dear Jesus, I am tired of the feelings that my life is meaningless and that I do not matter to anyone, I am lonely. Please forgive me of my sin and bring meaning and fulfillment into my life. I surrender my heart to you and ask that you take control of my life now. Thank you."
