We were created by God. He formed each of us and placed us in this moment. We may not understand why He gave us the gifts He did, or put us in this place at this time, but He has a plan. Mordecai told Esther in Esther 4:14, “Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?” In Ephesians 2:10, Paul says, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.” God knows who He created us to be. He gave us our personalities, our talents, our circle of people. He knows the situations we’ve been in and the lives we have lived. He knows the good we have done, and He also knows how we have sinned. Our strengths, our weaknesses. Who we have influence over and who we are influenced by. And He has put us in this particular moment. Now it’s up to us to take what He has given us and run with it. To show ourselves and others that we are all worth Jesus’s love and sacrifice. That He can use us even if we are broken. That we deserve authentic friendships. That we are special and unique and our talents are needed. And that, as the children and the creation of the Almighty God, we are priceless.
