But you do matter. You wouldn’t be here if you didn’t.
And you can make a difference in someone’s life and for the Kingdom of God.
You can still have an impact on others because
- You are still on earth
- God creates everyone with a purpose and a plan
Two years ago I stumbled on a blog that had a profound effect on my life and how I viewed my circumstances.
The blogger’s name was Sara Frankl and she had a chronic, debilitating, painful disease that was slowly killing her. However, the title of her blog was Choose Joy. Sara, or Gitzen Girl as she was called by her family and close friends, was a young lady confined to her condo for the last years of her life. Yet she had an incredible impact on thousands of others, using technology to reach beyond the four walls of her home.
Sara was a joyful servant of Christ, the queen of encouragement. She presented her entire life to the Lord as a sacrificial offering. And He used a broken, pain-ridden, home-bound girl in the middle of Iowa to make a mighty difference in the lives of thousands and for His kingdom.
If He could use someone like Sara, He can certainly use you.
Sara said it best:
“… if I am still on this earth, it means He has intended for me to do something more. If I didn’t have something more to do, He would reward me by taking me home to Him.” ≈Sara Frankl
Sara received her reward and went home to be with the Lord (and her dad) on September 24, 2011.
But you are still on this earth. God created you to make a difference. Don’t hide away because you perceive yourself as incapable.
Ask God to reveal your abilities.
Find one thing you can do (even if it’s just smile).
Use your one thing to make a difference … today!
“Therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, I urge you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God; this is your spiritual worship” (Romans 12:1).
Q4U: What one thing can you do today to positively impact someone else’s life? Do you know someone who is a joyful servant? What sets them apart?
