WATCH THIS VIDEO FIRST
I watched this video and was reminded of the story of Esther in the bible. That's the ONE book I've read this year...many more to go..God help me. Im not sure what prompted me to read it. Maybe it's the fact that it's not that long... I do that sometimes... pick random stories in the bible. I have a Chicken Soup for the Soul bible which I love cuz it has life stories and it's also in plain english so Im better able to understand. My niece's name is Esther, she was born about two years ago...so so cute and I remember thinking I didnt really like that name because I thought it seemed so... not touche... Im one to talk right? since my own name is Favor.... anyways, I read the book of Esther and I was inspired by her story. What an honor it is to bear such a name. Esther became queen and thus saved her people...read the story for yourself HERE
and then recently I read Laspapi's blog entry BROKEN WALLS and I thought to myself what a good guy...his actions are certainly commendable and then I thought this is how everyone should be.... actions such as his should be common place... it should be weird when no one wants to help
Basically...to sum up my post...
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF ONE
I think of it this way: Sometimes it seems ur but one drop of water in an empty pail...but thinking about it...if everyone was or were to become a drop....eventually...one day... the pail would get full...and then it would start to overflow... then we can set up filling the next one...I dont know how else to put it. It may start out that you feel a bit lonely...being just that one drop...thinking...how will this work... insert thoughts of Nigeria here
I sometimes doubt myself. It's interesting that some people see a greatness in me that I sometimes dont see in myself. Why do I doubt me? I need to be brave like Esther a whole lot more... step out more on faith...take more risks....
My prayer for myself..and for you...is that I(you) be strategically placed...wherever God wants me to be. That God will order my steps and that all the other voices around me...all the distractions are silenced and removed.... so that God's voice and His word will come thru pure and clear and that I will be obedient to His instructions with no hesistation even when it doesnt make sense to me
never understimate the power of one
Jesus was ONE! that just occured to me actually
You can be too
I will be too
infact...i am ONE
so help me God
how's your day/week so far....
did u like the song?
It's by Nickelback - If everyone cared
in other news...all you prayer warriors should keep me in their prayers...I dont feel so well. Not sure what's wrong...sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe...not necessarily a good thing....but Im believing that all will be...all IS well with me
