I am nothing without the Savior.
I have been reminded of this the last few weeks as I have failed a many things, survived others, and completed a few. I can do nothing alone. This used to make me depressed, this thought of being nothing, but I wasn't looking at it correctly.
The Lord loves me. He created me. He created this marvelous world. The Master of all that lives created me, that means I am of worth. Being nothing does not take away my value, but it's an acknowledgement that I need help every single day. Sometimes every single minute. It's not a bad thing, in fact it's wonderful.
It means I don't have to traverse this life alone. I have someone Omnipotent by my side and who wouldn't want someone Omnipotent by their side. I have an advocate, a healer, a creator, and a redeemer ready to help me at a moments notice. All I have to do is ask. What a powerful blessing, that I sometimes don't take advantage of because I don't want to burden the Lord with my problems not when others are truly struggling.
Today as I look around at the overcast clouds, the beautiful trees, and enjoy a few moments of solitude, I am so grateful for a merciful Father who allowed His only begotten Son to atone for my sins. I know that in the dark places and moments of my life I have an understanding counselor who abides with and supports me. In the stages of peace and joy, gratitude is overflowing for I can see His hand in our lives so clearly that I didn't recognize before.
I am happy to be nothing, to be molded by His hands. He is my all.
