Y is for Yearn
Yearn: to long for; to have an intense desire for; to feel tenderness or affection.
There is a yearning inside us for meaning. Will my life have meant something when I reach the end? Do I matter? We don't want to go through life without making a difference.
We yearn for affection. Are we loved? Does anyone care for us?
God also yearns. He yearns for us to know Him. He loves us even if we don't know or understand it. He made us to be social creatures, living life together, in community.
So yes, you are loved. Your life has meaning. And unless you go through life without interacting with a single person, you will make a difference. The question is, will you make a difference for good?
