When I entered the bathroom of a restaurant the light automatically switched on. For a brief moment in time my presence mattered; just me being somewhere made a difference.
Later that day when I took our dog for a walk, I walked past a building with an alarm going off and red lights flashing over the door. No one came. Hour after hour the alarm rang and the lights flashed…and no one came.
Sometimes we just need to know we make a difference for one thing, or to one person. Sometimes our life derails, the alarms scream…and no one comes.
It is a comfort to know that no matter where in the world we live or what in the world we do, we matter to God. No matter what alarm bells shrill in our lives, God is never too busy to hear.
“Cast all your cares upon God, for He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7

Great analogy about the light coming on simply by your presence. You matter to God and I think He is just like that, He lights up when we make an appearance. 🙂
Thank you so much. It’s an honor to get a comment from a fantastic, brilliant writer like you. God bless.
Lovely analogy, Steph. You always make points that make me think
Thanks, Val. And you always make a difference.
