Have you ever wondered what it's like to be an ant? The live in a world where almost everything is bigger than them, their food, their predators, their home. They're powerless against the ant eaters and toast when a human zaps them.

Sometimes I feel like it feels like as humans we are ants too. Now we're not exactly one of the smallest creatures on earth, but in the grand scheme of things we can feel lost and powerless. I often find myself wondering about the universe and how we came to be, but I'm not talking science. I'm talking about the inconceivable, the unprovable, the things in life that need faith in order to be believed, and sometimes a lot of faith.

I believe that even though we can feel so small and powerless, we don't have to feel that way. We were all dreamed up and placed here for one purpose, and that purpose is because we have a purpose in life. We all have strengths and gifts. We all have things that we're not so good at, but that's okay. We don't have to be good at everything.

Here's why:

Where we're not good at something someone else picks up.

When we are good at something we shine, we glow and share our gifts with others who need them.

Lastly and most importantly, we don't have to be afraid of our girlfriend because the God of the universe fearfully and wonderfully knit us in our mother's wombs and before we were born he knew what we would do and how we would react to obstacles in life.

So, do not be afraid when presented in hard times, don't run from it. He's got you right now, right here and He isn't letting go nor will He ever give up on you. If you let Him in, you'll never feel so powerless against anything, because your life has purpose and you have unique gifts, and God is there to help you ever step of the way.
