I am but one... and I have hope for the world

I am one person, who has the ability to touch those in my life in a positive way.

How many times we ask ourselves, "why on earth am I RIGHT here?" I don't always feel like I belong. I feel like a square peg in a round hole at work, and sometimes even at church, I feel like a round peg in a square hole.

I am not like anyone else. I have characteristics like others, but I am my own me. God made me that way.

Sometimes, in my loudest screaming "WHY AM I HERE, LORD, WHY?"
I get my answers in quiet whispers and thunderstorm loud screams. "You are here because that's where I need you" or "you are here to learn a lesson".

My boss, who might I add is awesome, she is one of the greatest people I know, has a neighbor who's son needs help. He needs Jesus, he needs to not only be told he's loved, but to feel God's love. So, I sent out some emails looking for some places for him to go to get loved on like crazy (they live too far for Metro). I got some emails back. I don't know how this will all end. I know that I was here to help. Prayer their family hears the quiet whispers of God, and the loud shouts too.

I am but one, but can be used for many of God's great things.

Psalm 31:24 24 Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.
