God Has Plans for Me

But I am a worm, and not human; scorned by others, and despised by the people.
All who see me mock at me; they make mouths at me, they shake their heads;
'Commit your cause to the Lord; let him deliver—let him rescue the one in whom he delights!'
Yet it was you who took me from the womb; you kept me safe on my mother’s breast.
On you I was cast from my birth, and since my mother bore me you have been my God.
Do not be far from me, for trouble is near and there is no one to help.

—Psalm 22:6-11

I am being dehumanized. To others I am a nobody. Even my faith is being mocked. Yet to God, I am a beloved child. God has plans for me.

Trouble is near, O God; it's obvious that no mortal can help me: Don't be far from me. Amen.
