we should never go through life doubting our existence or believing the lie that our life does not matter. by being alive in this day and time, we should be eager for each new day that comes our way to meet its challenges and exceed what we even thought was possible. by having a quiet confidence, we are reaffirming our faith in ourselves as well as our faith in the lord who has promised our success and our victory. get it deep in your mind and heart that you are special and are alive today because you are meant to accomplish something that no one else has been equipped to accomplish

if we only knew how special god sees us, we would never allow our temporary trials to get down or discouraged. we would be true overcomers because we would see with renewed eyes how special we really are. be encouraged to believe this truth about how special you are in god's eyes and rededicate yourself to being positive, outgoing, steadfast, faithful and unwavered in your walk with the lord. by doing our simple part of staying in faith, the lord will continue to do his part to lead us onto the path that is best for our life (psalm 139:17-18, psalm 103:10-12, philippians 3:13-14).

you are worth it.

do not undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. it is because we are different that each of us is special.

do not set your goals by what other people deem important. only you know what is best for you.

do not take for granted the things closest to your heart. cling to them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.

do not let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past nor for the future. by living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.

do not give up when you still have something to give. nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying. it is a fragile thread that binds us to each other.

do not be afraid to encounter risks. it is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.

do not shut love out of your life by saying it is impossible to find. the quickest way to receive love is to give love; the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly.

do not dismiss your dreams. to be without dreams is to be without hope; to be without hope is to be without purpose.

do not run through life so fast that you forget not only where you have been, but also where you are going. life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way. he hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. for as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. as far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us (psalm 103:10-12).

a merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones (proverbs 17:22).

let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, i will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. so that we may boldly say, the lord is my helper, and i will not fear what man shall do unto me (hebrews 13:5-6).

trust in the lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. delight thyself also in the lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. commit thy way unto the lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. and he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday (psalm 37:3-6).

finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the god of peace shall be with you (phillippians 4:8-9)
