I Matter

I MATTER Sometimes I ponder about my importance Wondering about my worth to my Lord Does God really care about little ole me? Then the answer comes as I read His word Consider the beautiful lilies of the fields Consider the birds soaring through the air God deems all them worthy of His attention How much more for His children does he care He knew me while still in the womb His plan for me already laid out He knows every inch of my being The hairs on my head, He has count Through the multitude of prayers He receives everyday My humble, silent prayer somehow makes it to His ears In my quiet room He sits and listens And vanquishes all my worries and fears He has never forsaken me as others have Wrapped around me is always His loving arms To keep me safe through the turbulent storms To comfort me when others do me harm When I am mocked for being His child He gives me the strength to stand my ground As they taunt and laugh with hateful hearts I tell them all of the joy I have found All my needs He supplies and some of my wants My blessings are many...some are unbeknownst From dangerous unseen perils He steers me away And protects me from unknown foes ready to pounce For me He gave the ultimate sacrifice Down to Earth, His only begotten Son He sent Freed from sin; I will no longer perish How important to Him I must have meant So next time I’m down and feeling insignificant That I have little value. My life is in tatters I will remind myself of all He’s done for me I will hold my head high and exclaim, “I matter!”
