You Matter

By guest blogger, Emily Wolf


I matter, you matter, our children matter. We are all so loved. (John 3:16) God has amazing purpose for our lives.

I didn’t always know this. There were many years I felt completely unseen. I felt as if I was tucked away from society, misunderstood & forgotten because, well..autism had us isolated for a while. During my darkest years God shaped my heart the most. The trials were not wasted, they were my saving grace. His light came through more & more each day until it’s all I could see. His love, His beauty, His truth, Him. Hope. He pulled me out of the darkness & told me I indeed mattered. That I have amazing purpose even if I can’t see if for many years to come.

So I began studying & speaking His word into my life.

I am wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14)

God has great plans for us. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Do all things with love. (1 Corinthians 16:14)

Set you minds on things above. (Colossians 3:2)

And so many other life changing truths fill & fuel my life.

I know I matter. I know I am cherished, loved & counted. Maybe you need to hear that too. You matter, your story matters, your life matters. You are so loved & God has great plans for you!

We are His precious children!!

Praise & glory to Our Father 🙌♥️
