You are Making an Impact

Are we going to wait for people to die before we pay tribute to them or make them feel special?

As what Pastora Rhoda shared at our service this morning, "People of different races are of equal value."

We don't need to choose which people to talk to, which people to smile/wave at or which people to give gifts to. Whether a person is nice or not, they all deserve attention. I've observed that the grumpiest people in the world are the ones who really need attention. Let's make people feel they're special, loved and appreciated. Let's appreciate the little things they say and do. A simple "thank you" makes a heart smile with joy. You don't need to feel shy or feel that it won't make an impact. It does. It really does. I was talking to one of my young friends yesterday and she said that whenever her mom says "Thank You" or "Take Care" to her, it makes her heart smile. Simple words mean a lot. We don't need to wait for a special occasion or holiday to appreciate someone. Let's pay tribute and make people feel special while they are still alive. Everyday is an opportunity.

If you are someone who is always being criticized at, who is fat or thin, who does not belong to the "group", who is a loner, who is disabled/handicapped, who is poor, who is always being laughed at, who does not feel good about yourself coz you've been single for 30 years now, who is battered/abused, who is always nagged at, who thinks that no one likes to be around you, who thinks negatively about yourself in all aspects, who is heartbroken, who lost their value coz of someone they love/d or just someone who feels sad and wasted, YOU ARE SPECIAL. YOUR LIFE HAS A BEAUTIFUL PURPOSE. YOU HAVE AN IMPORTANT VALUE IN GOD'S EYES. GOD'S WORLD REVOLVES AROUND YOU, MY FRIEND.



I'd really like to share how GREAT IS OUR GOD! With our GOD, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE! If you're a faithful reader of this blog, you'll know what I'm talking about. hehehe! My uncle and his family who we have been praying for to go back to church attended service last week. So amazing! But I would like to ask for your extension of intercession to them as their children are experiencing sicknesses for a week now. We just claim complete healing right now. In JESUS CHRIST's name! Also, I'm so amazed at how GOD is working in our female cousin's life. She is very promising in GOD's ministry. Now, she has started attending services at my sister's congregation. GOD IS SO GREAT for answering this desire we have to win the souls of all our relatives. We just hope and pray that we will always be a channel of GOD's love to everyone.

Thank you for all those who prayed and will pray. Thank you so much.

I pray that you will touch the lives of the people you meet. I pray for GOD's Victory in your life.




When you feel GOD's love, OVERFLOW!

Make an impact. Make a difference. Make a ripple. Tip the scale. Be a blessing. Be different.

Hi! Every time I come to read your blog, you have written exactly what I need to hear. Today, I want to THANK YOU for what you are doing here! I believe God led me to this blog; I have no idea how I found it. I have to admit, I don't read it every day, but each time I do, that day's post speaks to me directly about what I need to hear. So thank you, and remember that you too are special!
