Day 30: Somebody's Nobody


00 is actually a size,

because a 0 is just not small enough!

A size so many strive to wear

striving to be a zero~

worse yet

a Double Zero.

Striving to be something that doesn't exist~

a

nobody,

who you are really striving not to be

because everyone wants to be a

somebody

Hmmm....

A

Nobody~

Just

a me

Just

a you

Just

a name.

No title to define you

when someone asks

"What do you do?"

and

you reply

with just your name~

no

Mr.

Mrs.

Dr.

Lawyer

Teacher or

Indian chief

no title

Just your name.

Have you felt like a nobody, a zero,

feeling not seen, or heard, or accepted~

a Nobody

having nothing to define you~

not what you do or what you have

just your name?

Living beyond a title.

Living beyond what you do

Would you be enough

just being a

Nobody?

A nobody

defined by the great Dean Martin...

You're nobody 'til somebody loves you You're nobody 'til somebody cares You may be king, you may possess the world and it's gold But gold won't bring you happiness when you're growing old The world still is the same, you never change it As sure as the stars shine above You're nobody 'til somebody loves you

And you know what,

Dean Martin has that right

because

you're nobody til somebody loves you.

Being a somebody

isn't having a title

before or after your name

It is being

Loved!

But...

you have

somebody

Who has loved you from

the day He knitted you together in your mother's womb

Who

hears your voice Psalm 5:3

Who is the

God who sees me Genesis 16:13

Who

first loved you I John 4:19

with a perfect love

that

is real love—not that we loved God,

but that He loved us I John 4:10

Who

showed His great love for us Romans 5:8

by sending

a

Somebody

to

become

a

Nobody

to die for us while we were still sinners Romans 5:8

~to turn

the

Nobody

in us

to a

Somebody.

A

Somebody

Who so loves you

that

He has

written your precious name in heaven (Luke 10:20)

~not your title

just your name

making you a

Somebody

because

He Loves

the

nobody

in you.

So if

you're nobody til Somebody loves you

and

you have

Somebody

Who Loves you

then

you are a

Somebody

and

never can be a

nobody

even if you can squeeze into a size 00.

So

Let's fast from

being a

nobody

and instead

walk as a

Somebody

with the

Somebody~

the

One

Who

Knows Your Name...
