You matter, heaven knows you matter Let the water spill from your eyes Let it wash the wounds of those lies Oh, let the water spill from your eyes All that you are, all that you’ll be Someone put the beat in your heart so that you’ll see You matter


Matter - for King & Country 


Let me make it very clear...... you matter.


It doesn’t matter where you are in life. You may have incredible success or hit rock bottom. You may be rich or poor, famous or never heard of..... regardless of any of this you matter. 

You matter to the creator of world and giver of life.  Every breath you take matters to him. To him who created you, gave you a purpose, and knows every hair on you head.... you matter [1 Peter 2:9, Luke 12:7, Romans 8:37-39]


You see, if this modern day life where communication has never been easier, when we have a infinite number of ways to keep in touch, many have never felt more alone. Lost, without direction or without hope and so far from God that they contemplate taking their own lives. 


In the UK men are three times more likely to take their own lives than women. The highest suicide rate in the UK was for men aged 45-491. This is a sad indication of today’s society. More than ever these men need to know that they matter.  That the answer they are looking for is waiting for them.  They just need pointing to God and build a relationship with Jesus, the hope of the world [John 3:16].  There are countless accounts of men turing to Jesus, including my own, in a time of need and prayer being answered. If only today’s men knew that the answer to their addictions, loneliness and depression is Jesus; how many lives would be saved and turned around into something God given. 


God knows, your problems, issues and addictions and is waiting for you to ask for his help and intervention. 

How do you ask for help? .... simple. Just Pray (start a conversation) and ask. The mistakes of your past have already been dealt with through the cross, it’s time to put these behind you and move forward into a life that God has planned for you, a life more fulfilling and more purposeful than you ever thought. 


TRUST in Jesus to get you through....You Matter
