Make a Splash
It's raining outside... and not just one drop but millions are falling. One drop... does it really make a difference when there are so many others? In this photo, for that one split second in time, it most certainly did.
I don't know about you, but being one of 8 billion people in the world makes me feel pretty unimportant and insignificant in the grand scheme, but my PURPOSE may not be to change the world, but to impact the world in which I make a splash.
God has a lot to say about purpose and how He works in, through and around you. Check out just a few of the biblical references:
1. No purpose of God's can be thwarted. (Job 42:2)
2. It is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. (Proverbs 19:21)
3. God fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart. (Jeremiah 23:20)
4. Great are God's purposes. (Jeremiah 32:19)
5. We have been called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
6. God raises up people for His purpose, that He might display His power in them and that His name might be proclaimed in all the earth. (Romans 9:17)
7. As the Potter (and we the clay), God has the right to choose our purpose. (Romans 9:21)
8. God rewards us according to how we live out our purpose. (1 Corinthians 3:8)
9. In God we were chosen according to His plan and He works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will. (Ephesians 1:11)

11. It is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill His good purpose. (Philippians 2:13)

So, make a splash. Make a difference -- big or small. Do not compare your impact with others. Do not fret the grand scheme because God's got that figured out. Fulfill the purpose God created for YOU.
