You Matter

Yesterday I attended Citylight Church in Plymouth Meeting. A great experience – from music, to welcoming community, to sermon.  Nehemiah 4 is about rebuilding in the face of opposition, part of which is – encourage one another. A personal story was shared regarding an unsolicited message of encouragement while feeling overwhelmed – the message was in part – “You matter to God”. That one sentence shook me to the core and tears. It was as if I was supposed to be there so I could hear that one sentence.
