what if you changed the world?

There is a quote by Ghandi - "be the change you want to see in the world"

I love that quote.

Yesterday I felt awesome, more energy than I've felt in a month! It felt so good to feel good. I think that on my worst day I have more energy than most on their good days but I always like to run at peak performance. Part of the issue was last week I ate like crap and felt like crap, garbage in garbage out. I woke up angry because I hate cancer, but I listened to worship music and praised God and slowly as I handed everything over to Him, I began to feel better.

One of my favorite other sayings is 'given a cape and a tiara, I know I could change the world'. I believe that, I also believe that I don't need either of those things, my crockpot will do. My gift of cooking will never ever get me a standing ovation from anywhere, but I know that my gift of cooking nourishes people, their bodies and their souls, people know that when I show up with my crockpot that love is overflowing. I LOVE THAT! I know that as dumb as it seems, I know I'm changing the world, and leaving the balance on the side of good. On the side of Love.

I know that my heart has been changed. I know that on my own, there is no good in me, but opening my heart, and letting True Love in, only good dwells in me. I love what Jesus has done to my heart, I love how He has changed me, I love that I take that change and sprinkle love with every step I take when I walk with Him. It's like heart shaped glitter <3 John 1:1-15
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.
6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.

9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
