I used to feel that my life was significant. I was meeting people’s needs, i was close to my siblings’ families and i had friendships that were meaningful. Now things are a little rough. I’m not as able as I used to be. It’s not that i don’t have these things i’m just not as active.

I’ve found that after age 45 or so being significant or meaningful is extremely important. You start wanting to leave a legacy and make a difference in everybody’s lives.

Giving meaning

Giving meaning

So i wrote a book about Moses called “Meet Me at the Mercy Seat.” It didn’t accomplish my desired outcome.

Now from reading this verse

Humble yourselves [feeling very insignificant] in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you [He will lift you up and make your lives significant]. (James 4:10 AMP)

I realize the way to significance and meaning is insignificance. It doesn’t make sense except that it’s typical Jesus. It’s backwards and upside down. God is so pervasive with His love and His power to do right that He’s worthy, more than worthy to bow before. And He’s easy to feel insignificant before. And when I do then the significance I desire comes from Him.
