Significance

I’ve been in a bad place recently. I have an area of my life that was immersed in hurt and confusion and I didn’t know how to resolve things.

I asked a friend involved to tell me the truth about that part of my life. I hate asking for truth – you end up hearing really hurtful, shameful things about yourself – but it’s so much more freeing than wallowing in ignorance.

He spoke truth to me, faithfully, painfully, and with healing. It was hard to hear, but it was also very freeing.

As I took what he said to God, God showed me that I am seeking significance in things outside of Him:
Significance

Significance:

1. importance; consequence: the significance of the new treaty.

2. meaning; import: The familiar place had a new significance for her.

3. the quality of being significant or having a meaning: to give significance to dull chores.

When I seek significance outside of God I create dark, shameful things in my life.

The truth is, there is no significance outside of God. That’s easy to say. Not so sure how to live it out as fallen man. I’m going to begin, however, by rehearsing truth (something else we talked about), so I’ve turned to Neil Anderson’s “Who I Am in Christ” to begin with, starting specifically with “I Am Significant”:

I am significant… (click the links below for the verse)

Amen

With that kind of significance behind me, I can hardly feel small.
