Days of gratitude: four

I am grateful that I matter to Heavenly Father.

"...the vast expanse of eternity, the glories and mysteries of infinite space and time are all built for the benefit of ordinary mortals like you and me. Our Heavenly Father created the universe that we might reach our potential as His sons and daughters.

Compared to God, man is nothing; yet we are everything to God.
My dear brothers and sisters, it may be true that a man is nothing in comparison to the greatness of the universe. At times we man even feel insignificant, invisible, alone, or forgotten. But always remember—you matter to Him!

You are not invisible to your Heavenly Father. He loves you.
...He will neither forget nor forsake those who incline their hearts to Him. Have hope and faith in that promise. Learn to love your Heavenly Father and become His disciple in word and in deed.

Brothers and sisters, the most powerful Being in the universe is the Father of your spirit. He knows you. He loves you with a perfect love. ... He sees you as the being you are capable and designed to become. He wants you to know that you matter to Him.

May we ever believe, trust, and align our lives so that we will understand our true eternal worth and potential. May we be worthy of the precious blessings our Heavenly Father has in store for us is my prayer in the name of His Son, even Jesus Christ, amen."
