We’re all in search of significance.
Whether it be in the title we hold at our jobs. Trying to measure up to the neighbor next door. What kind of car we drive. What kind of clothes we have. How much money we have. How many friends we have. Whether we have the white-picket fence with the husband and the kids to go with it. Looking for significance in our relationships, and truth be told, even looking for significance in the blog and twitter world, or even in the FB statuses we put out there to send the message, “Hey, I’m significant.”
Y’all, I have been struggling fiercely with the blogging lately. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve written a blog post and deleted it, or published and then maybe didn’t get a lot of comments and deleted the post all together, thinking to myself maybe it wasn’t significant and not what people wanted to read.
That.Is.Crazy and all together just flat out stupid.
I don’t know how I let myself get to that place. I didn’t ever want to get to that place.
Sometimes I guess I feel like the odd man out because I have no significant other to write about, no cute kids to blog about, no cute house of my own to show you.
I guess it’s easy to think that there’s no significance to your life when compared with others. But I have to do a heart check and know how dishonoring to God it is to even think like this…. Because God thinks of each and every one of us as significant.
Each day written and ordained by him is significant. Each season of our life is significant.
When I think of the word significant I think of importance, value, worth…
Don’t we get it???? This is how God sees us… We are important to him. He sees the value and worth in us, even when we can’t see it in ourselves.
Our significance isn’t found in people or meaningless stuff. Or how many people comment on our blog or our follower count on Twitter, etc.
Good grief, when we get to heaven… do you think we’re going to be tweeting away to all our followers, blogging, or be on Facebook for that matter? NO. I think we’ll be enthralled with far greater things.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ll be the first to say I LOVE all this stuff.
But I think the ways in which we find our significance (raising my hand) is so screwed up.
