     I think one of the saddest things in this world is that so many people live their lives feeling worthless, unwanted, unloved, when that is never true.  In most cases people have family and/or friends that care about them, even in a person doesn't know it or feel like they do.  And even in the cases where no one on earth cares for someone, still there is someone who does care.  His name is Jesus.  Whether you believe in Him or not, He still loves you, because you are still His child.  And if someone loves you, doesn't that mean that you are valued, and if you're valued, doesn't that mean you aren't worthless?  And yet still so many feel alone, for all sorts of reasons.  Sometimes because the people around them are mean, or their family focuses on a sibling more, or their orphan, all sorts of reasons.  Sometimes people feel alone simply because they don't have God in their life, even if they don't think that God exists in the first place.  No matter why someone feels alone or worthless or anything else like that, the same things still apply to them.  They are loved, valuable, not alone and certainly not worthless or unwanted.  

     This is a verse that I have come to love more and more, partly because of the way I discovered it, and partly because of what it has to say.  And it's true for all of us.  "I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty." (2Corinthians 6:18)  God matters, clearly, so if we are His children, then we must matter too. He made us in His image, He takes care of us, He died for us and He loves us.   Just like any good father, and He is certainly the best Father of all.

     "So God created man in his own image, in the image of god he created him; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27)  God made little us in His glorious image, so surely we can't be worthless.  Hence He made us in His image.

     "Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?  Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father.  And even the very hairs of your head are numbered.  So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows." (Matthew 10:29-32)  I think that we can agree that a human life is more important than the life of a bird, or even many birds.  Yet God provides for them, and cares for them, so He does care for us all the more, and provides all we need.  Even if that is not how it feels.  And would you waste time or energy caring for a pet or child if they were of no value?  So why would God waste time on one of His children, if we did not matter.  He cares for us.  "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear.  Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?  Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not much more valuable than they?" (Matthew 6:25-26)

     "The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again." (John 24:7)  "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John3:16)  He died for us and He loves us.  If he did not, why ever would Jesus sacrifice Himself for us, if He did not love us?  Clearly He did and does, because He died for everyone.  Whether you believe in Christ or not, He still died for YOU specifically.  He's just waiting for you to let Him in.

     Just another verse to show our complete worth and value;   "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?" (1Corinthians 6:19)  This verse is aimed more towards Christians, since we have the Holy Spirit in us.  And because we do, how could we say that we don't matter?  If the Holy Spirit dwells in us, doesn't that mean that we have to matter, or why would the Counselor, spend time with us, let alone in us.  "But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name..." (John 14:26)

As for beauty, or value through beauty:

     "Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes.  Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight." (1Peter 3:3-4)  Firstly, it clearly says that what you look like on the outside is not what matters, it's what's inside.  The person you are, the person you let yourself be when no one is looking, rather than the one you pretend to be, that is what matters.  Bigger than others, skinnier, taller or shorter, blonde, brown, redhead, stunningly beautiful or completely average, none of that matters.  And nothing exists below completely average; everyone is pretty in their own ways.  Secondly, it's none of that which matters, it's what's in your heart that does.  Are you kind, generous, patient?  Or do you cheat on your significant other, hurt others for fun, or steal?  Those are the more important questions.  No one is perfect, but we can do our best to avoid sin.  "Instead it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight." (1Peter 3:4)

     "But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and these make a man 'unclean.'" (Matthew 15:18)  Again this shows that it's what comes from inside that matters, not how you look on the outside.
There are many more verses I could refer to, and I shall, but for now I must wrap this up.  So I leave you with one final verse to ponder.  "A new command I give to you: Love one another.  As I have loved you, so you must love one another." (John 13:34)  God just told you that He loves you, and it's not the first time.  Read the Bible, let God speak to you more directly.  Chances are He will show you something that could change who you are.  For now I go, but I am praying for every one of you who read this, and I'll have more up soon if you wish to hear more.  Good day and God bless!
Our hearts
beat in time
as wind
cools our skin.
(we gain reason
to hold each other.)
Our eyes
close in joy
as sun
warms our lips.
(we kiss today
we lose love tomorrow.)
My heart
broke like glass
as rain
cleans my wounds.
(The broken shards
cut my hands.)
Glass Hearts Forget So Easy
Eh, not really sure what to make of this myself.  Guess that's what happens when I write during class.

^ That picture is really bad quality, sorry about that. But it's all you're getting, even just having that one is bad enough. xD I'm not really sure how it ended up bad in the first place, it looks fine on my computer.

Hello everyone! I'm a shy girl in person but I still love talking to people, so if you want to chat with me just feel free to message me. :D I have many chatrooms so if you want into one of them just tell me. I'm a born again Christian girl but I'll never judge any of you, for any reasons, and I won't try to shove my religion down your throats. My ears are always open if you want to talk to me about anything. :heart: I know what it's like to suffer, I've fought depression on and off my whole life, and I'm only just recovering from a two year fight with it, the hardest two years of my life. I've cut hundreds of time, and I've tried to kill myself, but I'm glad to say that I am happy and healthy (mostly) now. I have great friends on this here site, friends who have helped me with so much, I'm grateful to all of you! But my point is that I can try to understand whatever you all are going through, and I know there are lots of people who have it so much worse then I, but I want to do what I can to help all of you. :)

I'm a photographer, I take pictures of anything, nature, animals, people (though always covered, never nudity or anythingthing similar), and anything else random that catches my eye. I love reading, and lots of people tell me I read too much. But ah well, it's not harming me. ;) I also like drawing, though it's just a hobby, not a possible carreer the way photography is, or hopefully will be. I also love writing, I've got a lot of ideas bouncing around in my head, and I've started several novels, hopefully I'll be able to publish them someday. :D

I live in Canada with my parents and younger brother, I'm sort of the outcast of the family though, but I don't really mind. I don't really have friends in person, but like I said, plenty on this thingy called internet. :heart: I love Country music, Christian music, some Pop depending on the artist, and also some Classical music, like Lindsey Stirling. I don't watch much t.v, but when I do it's things like Corner Gas, Seinfeld, MASH, and Flashpoint. Anywho, to be more specific than just 'Canada', I live in British Columbia, in the country, outside of a small town. I have one rhodesian ridgeback named Zoe, she's adorable but quite evil, haha. And I have what, ten chickens? Used to be over seventy, but we can't keep all of them! :P

I'm 17, I have hazel eyes (though they seem to change a lot), dirty blond hair, I'm 5'7" and about 120 pounds. I used to be a great runner, with speed and stamina, but since I injured my leg (and it never healed right from bullies at school) I've only been a sprinter, no longer being able to run distances. I can still hike pretty well at least, especualy on the days where my leg doesn't always hurt, so I do that a lot. I love wolves and hawks, but I like all animals, even insects. Though I am terrified of bees, wasps and hornets.

Lets see.... I can't think of anything else to say, but congrats if you read through all of this! Feel free to ask me for requests, whether it's a photography requests, writing, drawing... I can't garuntee the quality, but I won't charge you for any requests. Though of course, if you do want to give me points I can use on friends or a premium membership, I won't say no. XD So that's me, later everyone and have a good day!

Do not use any of my artwork or writting without permission please. If you ask and I say yes than feel free to use them.

Even when you can't see Him, GOD is there! Did you know that 98 of teenagers will not stand up for God, and 93 of the people that read this won’t repost it?
Jesus had no servants, yet they called him Master...
He had no degree, yet they called him Teacher...
He had no medicine, yet they called him Healer...
He had no army, yet kings feared him...
He won no military battles, yet he conquered the world...
He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him...
He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today
Feel honored to serve such a leader who loves us...
If you believe in the trinity; God, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
then copy and paste this in your profile
If you ignore him, in the Holy Bible, Jesus says...
"If you deny me before man, I will deny you before my Father in Heaven..."
