Changing the World



If I want to change the world, I have to start with me. It is so easy to fall into the trap of paying more attention to the failures and successes of everyone else in this world, instead of working on the one person I actually have control over.

How can I create a little piece of heaven on earth? By living in HIM, by living for Him, by walking with Him every step of the way. God's paradise is filled with His presence and my job as His ambassador in this broken world is to bring His presence wherever I go.

I can't be a perfect specimen of God's holiness, but I can be a vessel for His use. I want to be His - I want my life to display His holiness and shine a little bit of heaven on this earth.


In Other Words is hosted by my friend Lori at All You Have to Give.

Very well said Heather! So simple but yet so hard to do. If we spent more time focusing on our own flaws and how to let Him transform us instead of looking at what's wrong with everyone else, this world would be such an incredible place. Not heaven, but so much closer than what we have now!!

If we keep centered on Christ, we are able to succeed in our humanness to bring His light to others. Nevertheless, even when we miss the mark He gives us an opportunity to bring Him glory. He's an awesome God!
