“We were built to count, as water is made to run downhill. We are placed in a specific context to count in ways no one else does. That is our destiny.Our hunger for significance is a signal of who we are and why we are here, and it also is the basis of humanity’s enduring response to Jesus. For he always takes individual human beings as seriously as their shredded dignity demands, and he has the resources to carry through with his high estimate of them.”
I still find it quite astounding how much my life has changed over the last 12 years. I remember very cleary what it felt like to believe I was completely and utterly worthless, yet crying out (both internally and externally) to be noticed. I also remember the first time I realised that my God had always known of me and the first time I realised just how much He loves me.
I truly desire to live up to “His high estimate” of me, in fact, His love compels me… how wonderful!!
