Pause: Breathe in deeply…..breathe out. Breathe in deeply….breathe out.

Ponder: It can be easy sometimes to buy into the illusion of our own unimportance. We may see large companies or organizations, superstars or successful people in our community, and compare ourselves to them, thinking that their fame or material power confirm how little our own lives amount to. But nothing could be further from the truth. Every single one of us matters–tremendously. Our very existence touches numerous people in numerous ways. The world simply could not exist as it does now if you, or any one of us, were not in it. God gifted you with unique talents. You may feel inadequate or ordinary, but you’re not.

Pray: Do you feel like you matter? Talk to God about it….and then give God thanks for your life, for your unique talents.
