What does it feel like to change the world?

Well changing the world feels like...
The burn of your knees when you are praying for the lost
The sweat running down your face as you build a home for someone who never had one
The butterflies in your stomach before you sing, preach, or declare the name of Jesus before a crowd
The headache you get after tutoring for endless hours just so that a child could begin to understand to read
The shiver that goes down your spine when there is no heat for your bucket shower
Changing the world feels like
Your hands in someone else's as you lead them in their first prayer
The pain in your foot when step on a Lego while cleaning the church nursery
The heartache when you see a child with sores on their skin
Paint drying on your hands as you paint a community school
Your stomach growling when you give up a meal for someone who didn't get one
Changing the world doesn't take a whole lot... Just the willingness to do it.

I am God's Possession

Now therefore, if you will obey My voice in truth and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own peculiar possession and treasure from among and above all peoples; for all the earth is Mine.
Exodus 19:5

My God!

My God is SO creative. I was just randomly thinging about how creative He is. He made sunsets. I would have never thought of making sunsets!! He made us! You and me! How creative is that? He decided "Oh! Today I am going to make Grace. And she is going to be just how I want her to be. I am going to give her hands so that she can comfort the lonely. I am going to give her feet so that she can go place and declare my name. I am going to give a mouth that she won't always use correctly but I will teach her and tell her how to share my love."
Come on people! That's my God. My God made fingers and toes. My God made knees and elbows. My God freckles and hair. My God got creative and made me how I am. He gave me all I have for a reason. And I am NOT going to waste what my creative God has given me!
