This is an old blog that I started in 2006. I keep it because it has a lot of historical data and people still come here. As of September 2016, no new updates will be made here. All new blog posts and writing/publishing related news will be posted over on my new site at www.jenniferhudsontaylor.net.

Word of Inspiration: YOU are Invaluable to God

“Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows." (Luke 12:6-7)


Sometimes we forget to put things into perspective and we feel forgotten, unloved, invisible and as if we don't matter. It's true that the world doesn't care about any of us, and even the celebrities have a temporary spotlight of favor. Tiger Woods and Brittany Spears is proof enough of that. The world is unforgiving and volatile toward the whims of fads and the latest hype. 


But God's love endures forever. God IS love. He is steadfast, unchanging, and if that makes Him old-fashioned, then so be it. He will still be there for us when all the fads are past, the hype is gone, and the money runs out. Think of the Footprints in the Sand poem. When we are at our lowest and in the depths of despair, God will be the one carrying us through it whether or not we acknowledge Him. He will never leave us nor forsake us. 


If we feel separated from God, it is because we are the ones who have turned from Him. We are invaluable to Him. He proved that when He gave his only son, to die as atonement for our sins. No one can put a price on that.

This is a good post. I've been thinking of the Sparrow scriptures this week. I actually touched on it in a blog of mine a few days ago.

I think Satan also likes to try and make us feel lonely. If we think we're alone, without other Christian brothers and sisters or because we FEEL alone(feelings are subjective) then we will be more likely to give up. So it's good to see your post and know...we have one another and most of all, we have a Father who promised to never leave us.

Britt, I agree. The enemy would like nothing more than to isolate us or make us feel that way. Thank you for stopping by.
