The Christian Empath Declaration of Existence

As I awaken to who and what I am, I begin to question, “Why did God make me like I am? Why do we need Empaths if we already have the Savior? What am I designed to do?” These questions and many more flowed through my mind the first moment I realized ‘I AM AN EMPATH.

I feel like I don’t belong. I am not like most. I feel everything on many levels. I read the thoughts and emotions of other people. And as I learn more about my abilities, I find that I am taking on the energies of other people and also the environment around me. Why? Why did God make me this way?

Here is what I know. The God of this world, The Savior Jesus Christ, does exist. He is a kind, fair, just and loving God. And because I know this, I know he would not create me to just suffer. No. He created me, with the abilities I have, for a wise and glorious purpose. Just as the flower blooms and serves its purpose in this world, I too am here to serve a purpose as well. God created me, an Empath, with abilities to use to serve and love those around me. I was born, to be an Empath, wired differently, and look the same as others around me. It is because of this difference that I can be a shining light in the lives of people I interact with.

God came to earth to atone for all who would repent and follow him. Also, as part of his gift to us, he takes from us our pain and suffering. He reads us like a book and knows what we are feeling. He cries with us when we cry and can find no hope. And yet he gives us hope just by helping us feel his arms around us during those tender moments. He gives energy to us daily to help us feel renewed and strengthened. He knows ahead of time what trials or tribulations we will face. He is in charge of spirits as they leave their bodies and go back to him. If Jesus Christ does all of this, why then do we need Empaths?

I learned in church that God wants people to turn their troubles/lower energies/emotions over to him. They, themselves, not the friendly neighborhood Empath. But not everyone has the faith, understanding, ability or focus to do this. And they still need to clear these energies or they will become sick from them. So, because God loves us so much, he does not want to see us suffering in spite of our own ignorance and stubbornness. This is why God created Empaths. He made us like him. We are assigned as mortal angels to help him with his tasks. He cannot force any person to do anything. But he can still lovingly bless them in such a way as to help relieve their emotional pain. We Empaths are physically designed to do this. We are the mortal angels assigned to this work. We are here to serve and love those around us as he would if he could. It is because not all believe in him, that we can help as substitutes. And we know, that all will eventually know him.

As mortal angels, we still must work through this life the same as all others. We are not better than those around us because of this life-long assignment. It is our duty as an Empath to understand our abilities while working to better our mortal shortcomings. I now know that I am not here as an Empath to replace God. I am instead here to serve him all the more. That as I serve others, I am serving God. It is in this simple truth that I am fulfilling the measure of my creation and existence. I am designed, wired, programmed, created to be a mortal angel. I exist to serve and love. I am an Empath. And I will always exist as an Empath.
