WHY YOU MATTER.
You matter more then you know. Here are five reasons why you matter...
1. YOU ARE CREATED IN GOD'S IMAGE.
Looking out my window I can see trees, mountains, birds, and the sky. All of this creation individually speaks of a great creative giant that holds excellence in hand crafting His creatures. Just as all art speaks of its artist, all of creation shouts with force about an untamable painter that sculpts sunrises in His sleep. And yet He has chosen to create you in a unique way, a way that is different than all other creation. He has chosen to make you in His own image. Not that we look exactly look like God but that He took time to adjust our make-up to say something supernatural and special to all of the cosmos. You are a miracle made to stand higher than the mountains, connected to immeasureable power.
2. HE HAS CHOSEN YOU TO BE HIS AMBASSADOR
The Lord has not only created you an a unique way but has destined you for glorious purpose. He has chosen you as His follower to represent Him and His authority on the earth. If you had the ability to choose someone to play you in a movie of your life (yes I would choose Justin Timberlake) who would you choose? Is it just absolutely mind blowing madness that God has chosen you to "play Him" here on the earth. Not that we are gods in ourself but that we represent heaven here on the earth. Unreal.
3. YOU ARE HIS TREASURED ART
He not only has made you, He not only has given you great purpose, but He will continue to make you look more like Him. I recently heard a quote that captured me about how, "art is never finished but rather just abandoned." Personally I love art and I think this statement is so true since art is never really ever done but rather there comes a time where an artist just put a cap on their creation and calls it good. Do you know that God won't quit on creating you? You are so important to Him that He has named you His workmanship and He will continue to craft you day in and day out until that glorious moment of His return. If you matter to God that much, that He would spent so much time on who you're becoming, then you matter.
4. YOU HAVE PEOPLE AROUND You WHO LOOK UP TO YOU
Maybe you don't realize it but there are people all around you that look up to you. You truly are a giant in someone else's eyes. And you know that person you look up to or looked up to when you were younger? That person that meant so much to you? The person that changed how you thought, what you dressed like, or how you talked? You are that person to someone else. You can make a difference. You are extraordinarily powerful.
5. YOU CAN MAKE OUR TEAM BETTER
You are a culture setter. How you interact with each team member, the attitude you bring to the table, the excitement and expectation you carry will rub off and create an enviroment on our team. Personally I want to help build an enhancing envirmoent that our leaders and students walk in and experience a green house effect of growth. Do you know that you can help build that? That when you show up and how you show up matters? That you could be a large part of why lives are changed within our community!?
