You are very special, - Never Despair

You are unique, distinct and unique. In the eyes of God, you are something special. No one can replace you in the role that you fulfill in God's creation at any given place and at any point in time. You are most necessary and indispensable for that particular set-up in that particular time-space context. Therefore, rejoice and be grateful to the Lord that He has given a role for you to perform.

How well you perform your given role is irrelevant. God expects each one to do only what one is capable of doing at any point in time. God does not expect an ant to haul a great timber as the elephant does in the forest. Nor does God expect the elephant to fly in the air gracefully as parrots and doves and many other birds of flight who wend their way in the open space. He expects birds to fly and He loves them for what they do. He expects elephants to fulfill their role, giving dignity to the forest and doing incredible jobs of strength. He expects man to be man. And each one in his own sphere can fulfill a task and gladden the heart of the Maker and contribute something to His plan on earth. To be aware of this truth is to be worry free.

Things are as they should be. The Lord is in heaven and all is well on earth. This is the firm belief of those who have faith in the infinite love of God, who have trust in the infinite goodness of God, and who are sure that in God's heart they have a special and unique place. This place is ever kept reserved for them and no one can take it away from them because God's infinite heart is large enough to hold the entire cosmos and everything within it.

The peace of God pervades the entire earth. The peace of God pervades everywhere, without and within. The peace of God is the one great truth underlying all things, ever-present, ever-accessible and available, ever-full and inexhaustible. Try to live in the light of this truth, and the heart and mind will be at ease.

Never compare and contrast, because there is no comparing and contrasting among unique things. Every little fledgling hatched from an egg is unique to its parents. So is each being unique in itself, for God is the parent of all.

Therefore, rejoice that you are special to God in His infinite love. Rejoice that you have your own special place and role to perform in this creation of God. And rejoice that His love is immediately available to you. For He is not a remote reality, but He is the indwelling Reality, nearer to you than anything else on earth. And rejoice that within you is the peace of God as your own Self. You are God's peace and you have a duty to perform, that is, to spread this peace which you are to one and all.

Live to spread this peace!
