“Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”-Luke 12:7
Christian musician, wife, mom and actress, Jamie Grace, recently shared a compelling thread on Twitter that affirmed me and stopped me in my tracks. She started her thread by saying the following: “To all of the women who are tired and don’t have kids… to the girls struggling with insomnia and exhaustion but don’t have full time jobs… to the women who are busy and balancing the complexities of a life who don’t have a husband…I see you.” She went on to talk about how everyone has pain and there is no need to compare based on our status. She also said all women (girls and old and young women). Please click here to read the entire thread which will bless you and every woman in your tribe. This struck me because I have always been told that because I am not married or do not have kids yet that my sickness, fatigue, frustrations, disappoints and more are not warranted. Thank you, Jamie Grace.
I am so glad that God knows everything about us. He is with us every single day of our lives. He is with us on our stormy, mountaintop and in between days. He knows us more intimately than we know ourselves. He knows that number of hairs on our head. I love myself but I have never desired to count the number of hairs on my head. I want to encourage you that no matter what the world says about you, that you have a heavenly father who values you and every aspect of you. When you are in pain, disappointed, confused, overwhelmed, heartbroken, joyful, peaceful, happy and more, he loves and values you. Psalm 145: 18 says, “The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth.”
I want to encourage you to not only encourage yourself but everyone around us. You may think that because someone is married or single, has kids or no kids, no debt or a lot of debt, great or bad health, anointed, a great speaker and more that they do not need encouragement. Everyone needs encouragement and let us be a body of believers that looks beyond ourselves and opens our eyes to see people through God’s eyes. Allow us to look beyond someone’s status and love them. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 says, “Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10 For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!” May God bless and equip us to be a blessing to ourselves and everyone around us.
