Mother Holding Child's HandI always wanted to change the world.  When I was younger and more of an idealist, I considered the Peace Corp.  Then, I explored social work and psychology.  Maybe I’d make a difference if  I could rescue families from difficult circumstances or offer words of encouragement.

What was my God-assignment?  How could I make a difference in a world like this?

I realize now that my God-assignment can change from that of stay-at-home mom to preschool director to writer–and a I am always responsible for what God has assigned for me to do.  Nothing more; nothing less.

In my own strength, I am too small to take on every assignment.  But through His power and leading, I can impact someone’s life for the better.

What is your God-assignment?  What is He leading you to do today?

You could be the one person to console a hurting friend…offer a word of prayer for a wayward teen…provide a meal for a single parent.

When each of us fulfills His work according to His will, then we make a difference–sometimes an eternal one.
