A balloon without air in it iswell, just a piece of boring rubber really.
A car tyre without air in it iswell, a flat tyre that ain’t going anywhere quick.
And a world without you in it would bewell, flat and not round how it’s supposed to be.

Jesus said it like thisdough without yeast isn’t going to rise, and if dough is the world I created, you’re my yeast. Don’t for a minute think no one would miss you. You matter. You are seen. You are not alone. You are irreplaceable. Like yeast.

Just ask the woman making bread in Luke 13:20-21 (


Exchange worry for trust.

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” Philippians 4:6-7 (

Worry says, ‘I’m in control.’ And that’s what causes most of our anxiety and our frustration because we give ourselves power that’s not ours to bare. In fact, it becomes a burden because the control of our lives should be given to God. Learn to put this into practice, whenever you get scared or anxious, PRAY. Give it over to God. Point it out to Him. Allow him to lead you to the peace found in Him.


You are valuable.

“And the Lord God made clothing from animal skins for Adam and his wife.” Genesis 3:21 (

Sometimes life can be messy. At times this is because of our own doing and other times because of unforeseen circumstances. In this passage of scripture Adam and Eve had been banished from the garden, but the powerful thing is how God still clothed them. Not wanting them to walk around in shame, still wanting them to know that He will continue to take care of them wherever they may find themselves.

So remember, no matter how chaotic things get, you still matter to God.
You are valuable to Him.


Remember who you are in Christ

“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people” 1 Peter 2:9 (

These first few months have been nothing short of a wild ride. Fear and anxiety have almost gained a permanent seat in most of our hearts. When fear and anxiety are the lens in which you see the world, you are guaranteed a life of misery.

We need to remember who Christ has called us to be especially now – today and for eternity. We are still who He says we are. That should be the lens we choose to see through.
