Ever feel like you are unimportant?

Or unremarkable?

"On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor." (1 Corinthians 12:22)

It's common to assume if you don't hold a prominent position or have an obvious-to-everyone talent that you're lacking somehow and unimportant.  That you're overlooked by everyone - even God. 

Not so. You are created for God's glory according to His good pleasure.

"Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth—everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made." (Isaiah 43:6-7).

My friend Amy Carroll is with a team ministering to women in India right now.  She just sent me a quick update to say:

We finished our first 3-day conference in Siliguri, and it was absolutely glorious--so much more amazing than I even imagined.  One woman approached my friend Peggy at the end and said, "Thank you for making us important." 

Peggy replied with a smile, "God had already made you important, sweetheart." 

The woman said, "Yes, but we didn't know." 


  1. Thank you for sharing and proclaiming this truth today, Rachel. We, as women, are remarkable, important and we are more than because of HE who dwells within us. What a beautiful, simple post.

  2. Makes me want to go and tell more people!!!


  3. My prayer request is that my daughter's volleyball team would play their best to win the district tournament this Friday. She (my daughter) has been through so much since her sophomore year being a senior now. They have all worked very hard and though this may seem a simple little request I know it is huge to them. Being a mom--it is huge to me also. I loved your reading today--guilt gets we women in a lot of trouble sometimes. We need to put our trust completely in Jesus and only Jesus!


Chime in.
