What really matters

I'm linking up today over at Holley Gerth's place for Coffee for Your Heart. Today, her prompt is "Who inspires you?" I'm also linking up at Three Word Wednesday.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I want to whisper in your ear, you inspire me.

You've been through some tough battles. You've fought long and hard and deep for goodness sake, and sometimes you wonder if anyone else notices.

Never mind that you already know God notices.

But, it would sure be nice if he would send someone with skin on to remind you that you matter and what you say and do really does matter.

And I'm here to tell you that it matters.

I see the way you position yourself outside the limelight, but with just enough light on your voice so that it's heard.

That is beautiful.

I see the way you ask meaningful questions out of genuine curiosity, even though many times they aren't reciprocated. At least not now.

Life can sometimes feel one-sided.




Can I tell you a secret?

Your words are making a difference. Your presence is making a difference. 

What you said there, in that brief exchange, was a seed.
Once you planted that seed, God the Master Gardener, will water and bring it to maturity.

Your positive words and encouragement mean more than you will ever know.

I promise, you will be rewarded someday for your selfless giving.

You inspire me.


Thanks for stopping by, friend!
