It might sound outlandish to some, but I believe that we each have the God-given power to change the world. We all do – right where we are. All we have to do is allow God to use us. We are here for that very purpose. If we are not changing the world around us, what are we doing? Maybe the world is changing us…
Here at Four Corners Home for Children, when a child comes into our care, we are very aware of that special opportunity. We know we have the chance to change the course of their future. When a child who has a family history of pain and destruction finds hope, love, and a new future; their lives change course. The trajectory of their entire life is changed forever. And make no mistake about it, when one child changes course from that destructive life, then the world is being changed.
Many people fail to get involved because they are very aware that they can’t do everything – the problems just seem too big for their effort to have any value. We know we can’t help every child. We know we can’t solve all the worlds’ problems. We know we can’t do everything, but we can do something. We cannot allow what we can’t do to keep us from doing what we can. And what we can do, is valuable and powerful. Because when one life is changed, the world begins to change with her. Never underestimate what God can do through one person. Never underestimate what God can do through you.
We are partners with Christ in changing this world. Set that change in motion today – right where you are. “If not you – who? If not now – when?” We can change this world together!
