BE THE DIFFERENCE

We constantly blame God for all that goes wrong around the world and in our lives. Shamelessly, we ask Him to fix everything while we, His children, His vessels, do nothing. We complain ceaselessly about the millions who are straying away from His word, both believers and unbelievers alike. We point our fingers at God, defying Him to prove His existence to us, mere mortals. We talk about poverty and suffering, about corruption and malice while we do nothing about it.
But today, a new breed of believers are rising. A generation that screams from the very atom of their souls 'Here I am, Lord. Send me!'. A generation whose passion for God knows no bounds. A generation whose sole desire is to fulfill their spiritual and sole purpose: to serve their Almighty God. This generation will no longer sit back but will put on their spiritual armor and move against the enemy. This generation will be greater than any other before it. Because this generation will prove to the world that their God lives!

"But YOU are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God's instruments to do His work and speak out for Him, to TELL OTHERS of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted."
- 1 Peter 2:9 (The Message)
- Miriam

I write so much of being the difference too,I speak so much of rising above..and I've almost given up cause I often think no one wants to listen to what God's showing me.. I doubt if I am being any difference at all..I wonder if I inspire..I ask myself are my words just words.. is my talk just talk..Is anybody listening at all? Am I capable of changing lives? I don't want to be limited to a "title" or a "type" I want to be more..I want people to say "what you said to me..what you wrote ..It changed my life.."so thank u for sharing what God's showing you..cause even though it's unmentioned I feel like my words have been remembered too..

So here's what God shared with me this morning, it seemed appropriate to share y'all...
"Whatever you do for God, its never wasted. Even when it seems like your wasting your time and it feels like no matter what you
do nothing is changing. I can tell you when you sow good seed you will reap a good harvest.
God is continually aware of the things that we are doing, and he is continually aware of the work that we do for him.
We will not get our reward from man all the time but we WILL get our reward from God."
If the bible promises, it will come to pass, yes?
