In the eyes of God, you are a treasure. And if you desire a godly, intentional relationship, wait on the one who knows that you are a treasure, too. You are so much more than “just a college student” or “just an employee” or even “just a friend.” You are a member of God’s royal priesthood and regardless of who does or doesn’t see what you’re worth, nothing will change that!
There might be people in your life right now who completely ignore you or overlook you. Maybe you’ve spent years building relationships with people but when you need them the most, they are nowhere to be found. When you need their help or their love or just a listening ear, they go the other direction.
Don’t let other people’s actions toward you (or lack of action toward you) cause you to forget that you are still a treasure in the eyes of God! Of course, our brotherly and sisterly relationships and romantic relationships are reward, but the ultimate reward is Jesus Christ. The ultimate reward is knowing that God treasured us when we were completely doomed and gave us eternal life through Jesus Christ.
When you find yourself getting frustrated by who isn’t paying attention to you, who’s ignoring you, or who doesn’t see what you’re worth, remember what you’re worth to your Father and remember that in His eyes, you are a treasure.
Your sister in Christ,
