You matter to me.


One of the reasons I finally decided to start a blog, was to be able to share what’s on my heart with others. I also wanted to be able to leave a little piece of me behind, so that there is some small memory of what was important to me after I’m gone.  I am hopeful that the memories left behind here, will in some small way make a difference in your life. You never know how words can speak to people. Sometimes it’s the simplest things you might say, that can make all the difference in the world to someone.

Words are powerful and have the ability to cause war or bring about peace. I want the words I write to bring hope and never despair. I hope the words I share with you are words you need to hear.  If you’re reading this, I want you to know that you matter, even if you think you don’t. I want you to remember that this life is temporary and a greater life is still ahead. Don’t lose your heart in the things of this world, for your reward will never be found here.

Keep your faith in trying times and remember that life doesn’t always make sense. Accept the fact that there are things in this life which you will never fully understand. Try to stay positive and know that there is a God who loves you and who wants you to know Him.  He understands your daily struggles, for He has suffered through this life as well. In fact, He suffered more than the rest of us and has never asked any of us to suffer as much as He did.

We have to stop blaming God for the mistakes we’ve made, and realize that He isn’t the one causing our misery. It’s always easy to blame somebody else when life isn’t taking you down the road you hoped for. Don’t be misled, you can turn around and walk in the opposite direction at any point in your life. Seek Him first and you will always find the answers you are looking for. Just as Jesus loves me, I love you, my friend… I really do… ~M xoxo

    1. Thank you…. it really is a mission statement isn’t it? Hmmm… hadn’t read it for a couple of years and then randomly selected it for reposting today. If I had written this today, I don’t think I would change a thing. And yet I have changed by leaps and bounds in the last two years. Guess my heart will always stay the same. 🙂

  1. Wonderful words, Michelle. Yes, you do bring comfort and encouragement here. It is a reminder, when our challenge is greatest, our faith should be at its strongest.

    1. I just deleted the reblog for Monotony-free Mondays before noticing that you had commented. Sorry about that… I was hopeful about the contest, but unfortunately we didn’t get any new writers. I have decided to come up with a new contest and would welcome your thoughts. I am leaving the story as is for now.

        1. Sorry Tessa… You will be happy to know that you won though! 😉 I might bring it back in the fall when people have more time. I think a lot of it has to do with so many people being busy due to summer activities.

      1. I was a bit remiss in my submission but I wonder if there were any issues with persons that are not WordPress members. I was told from several people that subscribed by email that they aren’t getting their notices. Hmmmm. Let me think on this and get back to you.

        1. I wonder… I know that there is a WordPress member that has been posting and I am subscribed to them, but for some reason I only receive email posts from them about 1/4 of the time. It’s really strange…

  2. Love you too and a beautiful post. These kinds of posts just cement my faith that returning to God is the best thing I could do for myself. I just got turned down by a writing network because I post a daily devotional on my blog. Their loss and I really feel that way. It hurt at first, but then I decided I built all this up without them so I don’t need them now. Have a great week.

    1. Thanks Tessa! Your kind words really show how much you care and I really love that about you. I am glad that you aren’t going to be discouraged by that writing network. I know you have what it takes to be a great writer and I’m glad that you haven’t forgotten that yourself. Take care my friend and you have a great week too! 😉
