Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
This is part of the “make a joyful noise unto the Lord” Psalm/song that we who don’t sing so well often refer to. The Lord, who is still and always on the throne, made you who you are and has placed you in His pasture where it has pleased Him for His purpose which only you can fill. It is not the same pasture, the same church, without you. This is why God places each obedient believer into a church body, to utilize their gifts and talents for His glory.
