You’re a mom who’s raising your children the best way you know how, yet you find yourself second-guessing if you’re doing enough.
You’re a teacher of teenagers, and most days it feels both your words and efforts are going in one ear and out the other.
You’re writing your heart out, however it appears as if your words aren’t reaching many, if any.
You’re doing your absolute best in your job, but it must not be good enough for anyone to notice.
You may question why you’re doing what you’re doing. You wonder if you’re having an impact. You ponder if you’re making any sort of difference. To your family. To your neighbors. To your community. To your customers. To anyone.
Friend, what you’re doing is impacting the lives of others.
Even when you question it. Even when you don’t “feel” it or see it. Even when no one tells you so.
You’re not the only one. I question this, too. Sometimes more than I’d like to admit. When I do, however, I am promptly reminded God has me right where He wants me, to have an impact on those He puts in my path.
He has you where He wants you, too.
I’m one who believes (and has personally experienced) when our heart is set to following God, He’ll direct us where He wants us to go. We can have confidence if God wants us somewhere else, He’ll move us. If not, He’ll keep us right where we are.
You have an impact, right where you are.
And it’s a beautiful one.
You may not be “saving the world,” or feeding the hungry, or ministering to thousands (or maybe you are!), but the impact you are having on those whom God has placed in your life is just as essential. No matter if it’s one or hundreds. It’s an impact only you can have, and it’s a part of God’s plans–for your life and for theirs.
Your impact is significant.
Friend, keep doing what you’re doing to raise your children right.
Keep teaching those teenagers. They are catching more than you think.
Keep writing and sharing your story. There’s no one else who has yours, and no one can tell it like you can. You are touching more lives than you know.
Keep doing your best in your job. God sees your efforts, and will reward you, even if no one else does.
God is using you in profound ways, more than you realize.
And that, my friend, is a truth you can rest in.
Much love and celebrating you,
