Devotional: You Matter

You Matter.

Maybe right now, you feel pretty bad about yourself. Maybe you hate yourself. Or maybe some people in your life have made you feel worthless.


In this world, it’s easy to get down on yourself. For years I have struggled with body imagine, hating myself, feeling worthless, hopeless, and useless.

Those are lies from the Devil!

You hear lies from the Devil from a mental illness (I have many), some horrible people in your life telling you lies, from social media, or from magazines.

Hear this:

Social media, magazines, and tv shows LIE!

NO ONES life is that great, that wonderful, or that perfect.

On social media people post the highlights of their lives. You don’t see pictures of someone crying in the bathroom.

If social media makes you feel bad, get off of it! I did a break off social media for a while and it really helped my mental state. Now when I look on it I don’t compare myself to other but be happy for others and all the good things in their life. If you still compare yourself to others: get off social media, stop reading magazines, cut out the negative people in your life, and stop watching tv if all you do is compare yourself.

But just because some great things are happening in other people’s lives, doesn’t mean great things aren’t happening for you! No matter what your life looks like, you always have Jesus to count on.

Jesus loves you, forgives you, comforts you, encourages you, guides you, gives you grace, gives you freedom, gives you rest, gives you peace, helps you, and so much more In Jesus: you matter and your life matters.

In Jesus, You are:

You are beautiful. (Psalm 45:11)

You are unique. (Psalm 139:13)

You are loved. (Jeremiah 31:3)

You are special. (Ephesians 2:10)

You are created with a purpose. (Jeremiah 29:11)

You are cared for. (Ephesians 3:17-19)

You are lovely. (Daniel 12:3)

You are precious. ( 1 Corinthians 6:20)

You are strong. (Psalm 18:35)

You are important. (1 Peter 2:9)

You are forgiven. ( Psalm 103:12)

You are protected. (Psalm 121:3)

You are chosen. (John 15:16)

You are mine. (Isaiah 43:1)

You matter. You can do this. I believe in you. God believes in you. I love you. God loves you. So go to Him today and remember in Him, you matter!


“’I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. ‘” Psalm 63:3-5

“’Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord , who has compassion on you. ‘” Isaiah 54:10

“’See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure. ‘” 1 John 3:1-3

“’For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, ‘” Ephesians 1:4-8


Dear God,

Help me remember that I matter. Help me to remember who I am in you. Help me to stop comparing myself to others, love myself, love you, and love the life you have given me. Help me to build a close relationship with you. Please grab my hand and help me walk through life with you by my side.

I thank you for all my many blessings and for Your Son.

In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen!
