Helpless. Devastated. Dark. That’s how I feel when I turn on the news lately. People are being persecuted around the globe for their faith. Iconic entertainers are taking their own lives. Poverty. Oppression. When will it end? When will a change come?
There is a song by a legendary pop star which says, “If you want to make the world a better place, then take a look at yourself and then make a change.” Take a look at yourself.
God has given me a sphere of influence right here. Right where I am. My children. My community. My friends and family. And most of all, myself. Certainly I can change myself? Yes, this I can do.
My attitude. My prayer life. My time spent with the One who can change the world with one breath.
The decisions I make today will affect tomorrow. And the day after. What choices are waiting to be made?
Let me approach each one with prayer. Because God has given me this one life.
Let me make a difference for Him.
