795th -- Change The World


We should never doubt our existence and think that our life has no meaning
or purpose. This is so far from the truth that this thought should have 
never been conceived in our minds. The Lord has instilled within each of
us greatness that if we fully realized and understood it, we would be 
awestruck by the gifts God has entrusted us with. You must put away the 
negative, discouraging thoughts that have taken over your mind and start 
believing what God says about you. He says you are unique, beautiful, 
wise, able, lifted up, blessed and the masterpiece of His creation. God 
sees us as special and more than able to overcome any obstacle that comes
our way. We simply must believe God and move forward in confidence letting
our light shine and doing all we can to make this world a brighter place.

I hope this message encourages and inspires your heart to see that you can
make a difference in this world.


My daughter and I planted four trees in our backyard recently. They were 
little more than twigs when she brought them home. She was able to hold 
all four of them in the palm of one hand. Still, with faith in the future,
I dug the holes in our backyard and with loving care my daughter planted 
each one of the saplings. When I look out on them now, I smile. They are 
so small and yet so full of life. As they stretch towards the morning sun
and slowly grow upward to the sky I can see the hundreds of glorious years
that lie ahead of them. Soon they will be filling the air around them with
life giving oxygen. Soon they will be blessing the world with their sweet
smell and comforting shade. Soon they will be changing the world for the 
better just by being in it.

What most of us don’t realize is that we can change the world for the 
better just by being in it too. When we go out of our homes each morning 
we don’t see just how many trees of goodness that we can plant each day. 
Every single smile that we share plants a little more light in another's 
heart. Every single act of kindness that we do plants a little more 
kindness and happiness in this world. Every single moment of joy that we 
spread puts new seedlings of joy in the souls around us. Every single bit
of love that we give plants another sapling of Heaven here on Earth. We 
may only think of ourselves as tiny twigs, but in our lifetimes we all can
do more good than a forest of Redwoods.

Don’t be afraid to try and change the world for the better then. Remember
that you are a Child of God put here to fill this world with love and joy.
With God’s love in your heart and with God’s joy in your soul you can help
to create a never-ending forest of goodness in this world just by planting
one sapling at a time.

By Joseph J. Mazzella

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Philippians 3:13-14 “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but
this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching
forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the
prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

Hebrews 12:1-3 “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great
a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth
so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set 
before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who 
for the Joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame,
and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him
that endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself, lest ye be
wearied and faint in your minds.”

1 Corinthians 2:9 “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard,
neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath
prepared for them that love Him.”

Psalm 34:4-8 “I sought the LORD, and He heard me, and delivered me from 
all my fears. They looked unto Him, and were lightened: and their faces 
were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved
him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encampeth round about
them that fear Him, and delivereth them. O taste and see that the LORD is
good: blessed is the man that trusteth in Him.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
