Somebody Worth Dying For
“I am NOBODY.”
Those three words have never left my mouth.
If I think back as far as I can remember, I don’t even think they rattled around in my thoughts.
But, as the saying goes, actions speak louder than words, and the way I lived my life demonstrated how strongly I believed that statement.
This blog post has been tripping me up for a week. I’ve rewritten it with at least three different words beginning with letter N, but I keep coming back to "nobody." If I want to complete the ABCs of Living as God’s Beloved, I’ve got to get this letter done and move on!
So, why is this one so difficult? I finally got still before the Lord and asked Him. I wish I could tell you I came away with some profound revelation of why I considered myself a nobody, no one important, nothing significant.
There wasn’t an explanation of the “why,” but the “why” is behind me, and I’m quite positive the Lord is calling me to look ahead.
And in the future... I’m okay with being nobody.
As long as I’m nobody apart from the One who says I’m somebody worth dying for.
