Many of us go through life feeling insignificant. We feel like we just don’t matter, and whatever we do will never measure up. This is not a new feeling, it has been in humans since the beginning of time. King David lamented in the Psalms, “But I am a worm and not a man. I am scorned and despised by all!”
Have you ever felt that insignificant before? That you were no more than a worm? I have felt I never measured up my whole life. I was king of the benchwarmers. Relegated to the not good enough team, always the last one picked. And I was always the last one picked. My sophomore year of high school I weighed 89 pounds and wore size 12 clothes, that would be about the size of a 4th or 5th grader. I knew not to get my hopes up of being wanted on anyone’s team. I felt like a worm and anyone could step on me anytime they wanted and just snuff me out. Sometimes I wish that would of happened.
I questioned my life around every corner. I searched for why didn’t I matter. I found out “Whose” I was and who I am in Him. But even coming to a relationship with Christ I still felt irrelevant. Then I came across this quote:
“We are all worms. But I believe that I am a glow-worm.” -Winston Churchill
I decided I would glow right where I was and be the best me, I could be. I may never be change the world but I can change my world and those whom I come in contact with. You also can change your world and your little piece of it. SHINE!
