Blog Hop - Encouragement

Scripture
Romans 8:38 & 39 - For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor heavenly rulers, nor things that are present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I find this verse so encouraging - it shows us that there is literally nothing bad enough that we could do/say/think to make Jesus love us less, and there's nothing we can do/say/think to make Him love us more. We are made in His image and He loves us - more than we can imagine. We don't need to work for His love. It is ours, it is free, it is a gift - we just need to receive it, and nothing will ever separate us from that love.

Quote
I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. I will not refuse to do the something I can do. Helen Keller

It sometimes seems like there is so much evil in the world, so much sadness, so much pain that we wonder - how could the little I do make a difference? This quote reminds us that every little bit helps. No matter the type of contribution you can make, no matter your talents, no matter your abilities - everyone can do something and it makes a difference. You can make a difference - so go out and do it!
