You Matter

You’ve probably heard it more times than you can count and from multiple sources that ‘one person can make a difference’. Pretty powerful words that we could easily justify away; “How could little, bitty me take a giant step forward for mankind or make an impact in my small world.”

Yet, it’s been quoted often that “there is at least one important thing that needs doing that only you can do.” God has made each of us unique as stated in Psalm 139:14; “…I am fearfully and wonderfully made…” With that empowering acknowledgment, what God-given abilities and resources can you use to impact the world and make a difference? Truly, you matter more than you think even if the world may seem big. In actuality, it is indeed a small world after all as experienced through the advent of the world-wide-web.

Why not be a difference-maker and save a life by joining a local army of warriors at Care Net Pregnancy Services of the Treasure Coast. In this community for over 27 years, Care Net is a faith-based, non-profit organization drawing in and raising up life fighters and difference-makers. These are warriors who stand in the gap for the unborn and want each life to be given a chance to live out God’s divine purpose. After all, God knew us before He formed us in our mother’s womb. Jeremiah 1:5.

Join us to make an impact for life at Care Net’s 27th Annual Walk For Life on Saturday, March 12th, Jensen Beach High School from 9:00 AM to Noon. Obtain pledges and lead a team from your community, organization or church… “Raise’em up” to an exceedingly great army as proclaimed in this year’s theme found in Ezekiel 37:10b. Your sponsorships will save lives so that in turn, those lives will make a difference or even change the world. All it takes is ‘one person to make a difference’…You DO matter more than you think.

Throughout history, a multitude of ‘difference-makers’ have gone before us blazing trails, leaving legacies, raising money for a cause, creating movements, and shaking up status quo. Impactful to the Kingdom, many life warriors are leading people to Christ, one soul at a time. All it takes is one person to hear the calling, lead the way, have the will of heart to give it all and make sacrifices for the good of others and for the bigger picture of heaven-bound.

Even further from glimpses we obtain in the bible of impactful stories about men and women, we see they had different gifts, different personalities. They had some great accomplishments, but they also touched lives in quiet ways – inspiring, encouraging, supporting and serving. These characters of the bible used who they were and what they had to carry on the work of God. They ran their own race and at times picked up speed, jumped out in faith or simply stood steady in walking toward a goal. A goal we pray to have in sight; “to press forward for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. “ Philippians 3:14

But it doesn’t have to take a grand stand or a big venue to make a difference or impact for the Kingdom or for this world, big or small. One person in their local community can make a difference that inspires others to follow suit. We can use our homes, our jobs, our relationships, our knowledge and even our setbacks to build up other believers and make a difference…A difference for life… Here in our community alone, we can impact this world by saving a life through joining a community outreach or a cause like Care Net Pregnancy Services of the Treasure Coast.

Register or make a pledge today at www.WalkForLifeTC.com! It’s a difference you can make for a life that matters.
