You Are Making a Difference

  • 18 February 2021

I don’t know about you, but I often wonder if I am impacting anyone’s life. I feel like I do my best to encourage others and hold a standard in order to be an example but, at the end of the day, does anyone notice or do they just pass me off as a crazy lady? I expect many times that it’s the latter, but lately, I have been reminded that people really do pay attention more than it may seem. Humanly, it would just be nice to receive proof before I’m lying in a cold grave somewhere.

If you’re a parent, it can be especially tiring as it seems like everything goes into your child’s ear and out the other, but I expect that they are catching more than you realize. It may take 20 years for you to see how much influence you really had, but I imagine that it’s there just the same.

Maybe you are trying to be a light to your work or community. Don’t stop. I know the battle can be weary and oftentimes thankless, but your Father in Heaven is watching, and He will be glorified through your faithfulness.

Walking in the Spirit is not always easy, but it is vital. You have been placed where you are for a purpose, and that purpose is to bring glory to the Father. This comes through exhibiting fruit that only He can give: peace, joy, love, gentleness, patience, kindness, self-control. Every time you give into the flesh whether it’s through your language, your attitude, the tone of your voice … you are discrediting the God that you profess to serve.

So, my friend, I want to encourage you to keep pressing on. Don’t give up. Don’t become discouraged. You are most likely making a difference more than you realize. Let’s pray that those who come behind us find us faithful. And let’s continue to encourage each other to love and good works.
