All It Takes Is Just ONE.




"I'm only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something, and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do that something I can do."
Edward Everett Hale


The plain and simple truth is that each and every one of us only get one shot at this beautiful life before we go to live with our Heavenly Father.
We aren't guaranteed a certain number of days, so we must decide today what we will give our lives to.

So the question is.....will we choose to live a life of love in service to others or will we refuse to do our part because we feel we can't make a big enough difference?

One person has the ability to make a profound difference!


So what will you give your life to?

What are you going to give your everyday actions to?


God Works Through Us

We are an army, and it's going to take everyone doing their part to change this world.

God is calling us to put on love and get to work.

God works through us. 
He is waiting for us to arise and do something while we are here to help all of his children. 

Do It on Purpose
In order to start helping others and reaching them with the love of God, we are going to have to get ourselves off OUR minds, out of OUR prayers and out of OUR conversations.

We have to start living life with purpose—on purpose!


Those two little words "on purpose" have become very important to me. They've actually been quite life-changing for me in the last few years, because I have realized that you cannot wait to feel like it.

You cannot wait to think it's a good idea.

You cannot wait to even want to.

You just have to do it on purpose!

True and pure happiness comes from thinking of others first.

Our Power

What is the power of the Gospel?

Love.

Nothing else!

Love is the power of the Gospel.


 One person—one—totally committed, dedicated and submitted to God.
So just think what a bunch of "ones" can do.

 Jesus didn't have to go in and clean out the demons. When He came in, they left. Romans 12:21 says, Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good .
One thing is for sure, Jesus went about doing good, and we should too. That's walking in love!



Every single one of us needs to decide right now to declare war on selfishness. Let's declare war on selfishness in our families, in our homes, at the workplace… Let's get up every day and say, "God, I give myself to You. I dedicate myself to You."


Lets saturate everyone around us with the pure love of Christ through simple acts of love, every single day—on purpose!



HAPPY MONDAY!!!

Oh so true. We might be a small "blip" in life, but I've seen that one person truly can make a difference, even if it's just in the lives of those that surround us. Live out loud. :)

Love this! I definitely have to have a "do-it-on-purpose" mentality or it's just good intentions. Thanks for sharing this encouragement!
