I am Irreplaceable in God's Heart and You Are Too
But if people matter to God, then I had to believe that I matter to Him too. How do we know that we are irreplaceable to Him? How do we bestow on ourselves that same grace we extend to others? I struggled with this for many years. I could see the goodness in people. I encouraged them to shine and to realize who they are in Christ. But I just couldn't see it for myself. I felt that if there was no "me" in this world, there would be someone else who could share the love of God just as effectively as I do.
But over the years, I have come to realize that what He has put on the inside of me is unique and different from everyone else. Just as what He has imparted to you is special. As I spend time in His presence through praise and worship and as I see myself in His lap, letting Him love on me, I realize more and more, every day, that I am irreplaceable in His heart!
Do you know that you are irreplaceable to Him? Do you know that you have unique gifts and purposes in you? Have you spent quiet time with Him, listening with your heart, to hear what He might be speaking to you? I do know this...you are precious to Him and precious to the world. And we all need whatever it is that He has put on the inside of you! So don't be afraid to shine. Don't hold back from offering what He has imparted to you...you, who are irreplaceable!
Hop on over to Heart to Heart with Holley Gerth and see how others are discovering that they are irreplaceable in God's heart!
