Called To Be More

Satan is looking for our weaknesses. He is looking for our faults and fears. He doesn't have to tempt us with evil, he only has to get us to delay or detour for a "Good" reason from God's plan for our lives.

An interesting thought is it not? Our hesitations and fears are keeping us from being all that we can be.

What would have happened if Esther had said no I'm afraid I can't do this. I'm just an orphan. I'm just one person. But she didn't she stepped up handed her future to God and obeyed. That doesn't mean she wasn't scared -I'm sure she was terrified- but she had courage and obeyed anyway. Courage doesn't mean that you're not afraid. It means that despite the fear you act.

I'm here to tell you that one girl - yes that's you- can change the world. That doesn't mean you're going to be famous, or that people will always remember you. Or that you will be a star. - though all those may happen- Sometimes it's just getting the door for someone of giving them a smile. Other time it's getting your hands dirty. Or giving someone a cup of water. You don't know what is going on in someone else life.

Mother Teresa put it this way "We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop." What you are called to do may feel small or terrifyingly huge. But without us, the "Ocean" would be less.

So here is my challenge to you, change the world. Even if it is just for one person. Change it.
