you remember that one time you came to earth and changed the world?
Yeah, I want to do that too. I want to change the world.
But as the days go by and I grow older, I realize that I can’t do it. I am only one girl who, on most days, can’t even help herself. I sit here and complain about my circumstances; my children, my husband, my house, my personality, my lack of time and resources, my hair, and everything else.
I would like to change the world, but maybe I should start on changing myself.
Will you help me?
Should we start the day together and make a game plan? I feel like that might help me stay focused on the positive things and the ways I can make a difference.
We could start making a list of all the things God, our Father, has blessed me with.
Then You could tell me some stories of when You were on the earth. Those times when You overcame temptation and You loved everyone You met. Maybe you can teach me how You did that.
If You don’t mind, I would also like to share with You the things I am struggling with. I know You are a great listener and some of the things on my heart are too heavy for me to carry alone.
We could also discuss the things I dream of doing. I have a sneaky feeling that the Father has put these desires in my heart so that I can serve Him better. But the thoughts of big things for Him is quickly followed by feelings of fear and inadequacy that paralyze me.
For example, the idea of starting a blog or writing an ebook. I think that it could be a good way to help change the world. The only problem is that I’ve thought about it for a long time without starting anything concrete until now.
It’s because I’m tired, I’m overwhelmed, and I’m scared. Plus, it’s easier to just sit and watch those doing it while telling myself it’s because they are the ‘right’ type of person to blog.
But I want to put myself aside. I want to put You first. I want to put Your message of joy and love and forgiveness at the forefront because people need to know.
You promise to renew the strength of those who put their hope in You and it is in that promise that I push forward to build this blog and to strive to become a better person. I’ve dedicated this blog to You and know that You will lead me.
And maybe, just maybe, I can help to change the world.
I look forward to our times together,
