When You Feel Like a Nobody
Today I got up and of course grabbed a cup of coffee and went to sit in my
white sturdy rocking chair on my front porch. As I set there I contemplated about my life
and my blessings. For my Bible reading I turned to 2 Kings 5:2
It tells about a little maid who was taken captive out of the land of Israel against her will.
This peaked my interest. She was captive which tells me against her will and tells me
she did not ask or choose to be there. I am sure that she would have rather been at home and not in a strange land with the duties of a servant. I don't know her name she was just a maid. A person
serving someone else. This little maid heard about a man called Naaman a mighty man of valour who
had an incurable disease Leprosy. She said...Oh if Naaman would just go to the prophet he could recover him of his leprosy. Naaman's wife told someone the words of the little servant girl. Naaman was sent to the King of Israel who tore his clothes saying I can not cure this man but the prophet instructed him of what he should do to be made whole.
In reflection....sometimes we think life is hard and that nobody cares about us or even knows
that we are alive. Sometimes life is difficult and we find ourselves in uncomfortable circumstances, In situations that we just want out of. Sometimes we are surrounded by self pity
and pain and nothing will come out of our lips except crying and sadness. Just remember that just maybe
it is because you are the one who has been placed here for such a time as this. You are the one will give hope to the hopeless and who will stand up in the face of adversity and proclaim faith and encouragement.
Maybe it is you who will do something which will affect or even change the life of someone you don't even know. Maybe you are the one who will change your world.
Maybe when you feel like a nobody and no one even knows your name you are mighty in the eyes of God!
