You Matter To God!
Children are a gift from the Lord, they are a reward from Him. Psalms 127:3
There are times when young children feel overlooked. I’m sure, in many cases, it isn’t purposely done. It’s easy for adults to get so busy that they forget to consider your feelings, concerns and valuable input.
But always remember, you matter to God. He thinks of you as a reward! A prize! How exciting to know that God thinks so much of you!

Nothing but a number!
Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity. 1 Tim. 4:12
Being a teenager is difficult! You’re too old to be interested in playing kids games and too young to do “adult” things. It’s a tricky age. But God encourages you to be an example of all that is good, in spite of your age. God has confidence in your ability to show others a better way! He thinks a lot of you!

An Honorable Woman
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate. Proverbs 31:30-31
There is often more emphasis placed on outer beauty and “feminine wiles” than Godly character. The woman who reveres God deserves respect, honor and good reputation. He looks highly on her and there is no higher compliment. Our utmost goal should be to conduct ourselves in such a way that our lives are a reflection of our devotion to God.
