day 2859: Singular Difference

“God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.”

One person can make a difference.  We see that over and over in history.  Some times bad and some times good, but we have enough examples to know that the singular impact a person can have can be significant.  So why do we feel so often in the workplace that we can’t make a difference and we then defer to someone else or work in a frustrated manner feeling as though what we say or do is not worthwhile?  There isn’t an easy answer, but there is a way forward that has us each reminding ourselves that with so many other examples, that we should work with confidence and courage that we can make a difference and that our voice, talents and results could be the change that everyone else has been waiting for.

God has His many ways of working, and we know that they are as varied as each one us are in this world.  We are the “last mile of delivery” for His works and for His divine work to be done we have to believe and trust that He will do amazing, remarkable and even miraculous things through us if we only allow Him to do so.  Yes, we can be a huge singular difference for Him, with Him working through us.
