Are the things you hold of importance in life, life changing to others?
Who do you inspire to be like?
Do you have a message to share? Or are you inspiring anyone?
To Inspire means: to fill with an animating, quickening, or exalting influence; to produce or arouse a specified feeling, thought, etc.;
The Bible was inspired by a divine influence. The writings were inspired by God. And oh what a message it is!
The 12 disciples were inspired and became Jesus followers. They trusted and believed in His wonderful message. And it was one of His Amazing Grace!
I am inspired by a God who promises me an eternal future. He is creating in me a wonderful message, which I can only pray reaches others, as I live by Truth, Love and Service!
So, does your message share Hope?
Is it Inspiring anyone to know Jesus and transform their life?
Make a choice to make your message matter!
Lord, Use us to inspire others to want to know you personally. Let our lives (at all times and in all things) share the message of you alone. Your love, Grace and Mercy. Forgive us for when we miss the mark and our words or actions distort our true life message of you. Help us to be better at reading your word more often and living your beautiful message more boldly. Create in us clean hearts oh God. Guide and direct us in the way that you want us to go….so that when we draw others to you, we also bring you all the glory deserved.
As I walked along the seashore…
This young boy greeted me. He was tossing stranded starfish back to the deep blue sea. I said “Tell me why you bother, why you waste your time this way. There’s a million stranded starfish, does it matter, anyway?”
And he said, “It matters to this one. It deserves a chance to grow. It matters to this one. I can’t save them all I know. But it matters to this one; I’ll return it to the sea. It matters to this one, and it matters to me.”
As I walked into Social Services…
This little boy greeted me. I knew that he deserved a chance, the hope in his eyes I could see. Some say, “Tell me why you bother, why you spend your time this way. He is only one of thousands, does it matter anyway?”
And I said, “It matters to this one. He deserves a home I know. It matters to this one. With our families help he will grow. But it matters to this one; I’ll help him become what God wants him to be. It matters to this one, and it matters to me.”
~Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, Making a Difference~ Jude 1:22-23
There are so many ways you can make a difference In a child’s life. It may not be that you are called to Foster or to Adopt. Pray that the Lord reveals what it is you can do. You could sponsor a child through WorldHelp organization or start by teaching your neighbor’s children about Jesus. Look for opportunities to lend a helping hand, encourage and make yourself a positive influence in the lives of the children you come in contact with.
We can all make a difference! Together we can change the world. One child at a time!
