Change the WORLD!

Recently, I attended a conference and the speaker explained how each of us is created for a special task.  Just as we have our own unique fingerprint, we are called to leave our own unique print on the world and mankind.  Over a year ago I wrestled with the Lord throughout the night unable to sleep at all with His constant admonition, “Heather, you are a World Changer.”  Being a World Changer sounded like such a huge and daunting feat.  I was so intimidated.  I begged the Lord to choose someone else.  Since that time, my understanding has changed and the call is clarified.  I am called to be a World Changer, and so are YOU!
Life lesson:  You are a World Changer
The word radical seems to have a negative connotation.  Take a close look at its definition:
rad·i·cal/ˈradikəl/Noun: A person who advocates thorough or complete political or social reform.  Adjective: (esp. of change or action) Relating to or affecting the fundamental nature of something; far-reaching or thorough
The call to be a World Changer sounds a bit like the call to be a radical believer, a radical Christian, a radical follower of Christ.  Aren’t those people crazy?  I am beginning to believe we have to be crazy NOT to live radical lives.  We should be agents of change.  Our lives should be noticeably different than nonbelievers.  We should work for social reform.  We should have a cause.  We should passionately work to make our mark on society and the World.  Our impact should be far-reaching, it should be thorough.  We should be difference makers.
This presents some great questions for consideration should you chose to accept the mission to change the world:
  1. What am I passionate about?  (your cause)
  2. How has my life’s journey made me unique/different?  (your testimony)
  3. Where do my talents lie? (your gifts)
  4. What is the one thing that defines me? (your purpose)
  5. What can I do today to change the world?  (you plan of action)
Think about it, pray about it, and DO IT!  Be a radical servant of the Most High King.  This life is an adventure; don’t let your life slip by without making your mark.  God has given you a purpose and a cause.   Now, live it!   If you never jump, He can never catch you!  This is your moment, JUMP……….
Let me know your mission.  How can I pray for you?  Comment and I will pray and support your efforts to change the World!

  1. I love this post Heather! I too have wrestled with the "World Changer" label. I think it's because for so long I thought that to be a World Changer you had to change the whole world at once. God has revealed to me though that changing my world-my family, my church, my community- is in fact changing the world. I love that God takes our efforts, big or small, and makes miracles happen with them. Some miracles we get to see now and some we won't know about until Heaven but they happen all the same. Ironically, I'm memorizing Ephesians 3:20-21 right now, "Now to Him Who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen." :-)

  2. our responsibility is to do what we can
    we plant
    but God can use that to change the world
    Mk 4:8
    Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they sprouted, grew, and produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted!"
    Lets plant,plant,plant
