Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this
“What difference does it make?” Have you ever asked yourself that question? Have you talked yourself out of taking action with that question?
You are a difference maker! Every day, whether you are intentional or not, you make an impact – for the good or the not-so-good. You decide the difference that you will make.
Instead of counting our blessings, we frequently choose to focus on things we would like to change. When it comes time to take the action that leads to change, though, we often throw up our hands and ask, “What difference does it make?” With that question, we discount any strategy, action, or outcome that would help us achieve our goal.
Do you wish your boss appreciated you more? Show up early. Stay later. Do a little more than what is required.
Do you wish you were in better physical shape? Put down the remote. Take a walk. Make healthier eating choices.
Do you wish that your family life was stronger? Spend time together. Look one another in the eyes. Talk about your accomplishments and challenges.
The power to make a difference lives in you. God has chosen you. He has inserted you into this moment in history to impact the world for Him. Live in wide-eyed expectation for the difference He will make through you today.
