Does My Life Matter?

What is the meaning of life?

  • A corresponding state, existence, or principle of existence conceived of as belonging to the soul.”

No, what is the meaning of life?

  • “The general or universal condition of human existence.”

No… What is the meaning of life? The meaning of life is you. You are made up of all the things that makes life possible. So why shouldn’t you matter?

You are important! Why? Because you are a creation of God.
Anything that God has laid his hands on, has infinite value.
 Today’s message is- Understanding the importance of YOU! Recognize your self worth and the importance of having self love. This will also help you appreciate and respect the worth of others.

       Many of us are in this deadly battle with society. We are either trying to fit in, or trying to find a way we can survive in our own  world while living in the miss of reality. Society sets the standard which is represented by the masses, and it is perceived that, if one does not fit the standards set by society, then they have no equal stand among their peers. People are either trying to fight society’s rules, or trying to change them. In this battle, it truly takes the strong to survive. So many of our young brethren and our young women have lost their lives trying to develop themselves to fit inside of a box that allows them no air to breathe.

        When we don’t know who we are, we become subjects for other people to define, we become the pawns for the chess masters to use and move wherever they see that we fit. When we don’t know who we are, we transform ourselves into the people we idolize or are told to worship. We turn into the people that seem to have all of the things we believe that we need in order for us not to feel worthless, but important. To whom? To whom are you trying to prove your own worth to? For whom’s eyes are you dying to satisfy? For whom are you breathing for? If the first person on your list isn’t you, then I can show you where the problem is, and how the solution begins.

ImproveSelfEsteem_thumb     The problem is in the unawareness of what you cannot see looking through the eyes of the flesh; the problem is not being conscious of the spirit within you, and not knowing that that spirit chose to be in your specific flesh for a reason, to live the life you have been living for a reason, every struggle and every triumph has happened for a reason, you are here for a reason… You have a purpose! knowing this, and identifying that purpose is where the solution to your problems begin.

We must watch what we feed our energy to. Negativity will grant you with negative emotions, depressing things will make you depressed, satisfaction will make you satisfied, and happiness will bring you joy. Life can be so ill when given the wrong medicine, and our bodies get sick, our mental and physical states get weary when we allow ourselves to step out into the cold, with no protection to cover us up from the virus’s in the air. Understand that sometimes, keeping you to yourself, being selfish with your energy, is not wrong at all. Sometimes you only have this choice, either preserve your energy, or give in to pressure and have it drained. How much does your life matter to you? Your answer to this question will be the same answer you receive from all of life around you. When you matter to you the most, your self worth glows so brightly, so that no one could ever mistake your shine.

happy     How bright you shine in this world, depends on the light you provide to yourself… Be worth as much as the air you breathe. Granted, you both work for each eachother.

good
