He Makes You Matter

“God has a plan to make you mighty, and make you matter.” 
* Beth Moore
 
 
Do you ever feel like you don’t matter in this world;
Like if you disappeared, no one would care?
Well let me tell you, friend, that can’t be farther from the truth;
‘Cause if you’ve breathed a single breath of air
 
Then God has got a plan for you that He’ll work out for good;
That’s full of hope in all that He can do.
He’s got a special purpose that He wants you to fulfill,
With His own grace and strength at work in you.
 
So if you choose to live for Him, you’ll surely leave some mark
That lets the world know you, indeed, were there.
And even better is the mark that doesn’t point to you,
But leaves the name of Jesus everywhere.
 
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus
to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
Ephesians 2:10 NIV
