When I take the time to consider the influence we have on the hearts of others, it boggles my mind. And it’s a little scary. And amazing.
But mostly mind-boggling.
Just think about it.
We can literally change the course of someone’s day by one word. Or one action. Or one smile.
And boy, let’s do our best to change that someone’s day for the better, right?
Our ability to influence someone’s heart – change their day – doesn’t happen because we “have a big platform.” Or because we’ve got all our ducks in a row and they’re synchronized swimming perfectly. Or because we are having a good day.
Our ability to influence happens because we notice. We smile. We say a good word of encouragement.
You guys, I’m just so blown away by our profound ability to make someone’s moment better.
I’m also blown away by how quickly I forget this simple truth.
How about this …
What if today we intentionally make a choice to:
1) Stop waiting for someone else to fix our life and bring us the sunshine, and then ..
2) Shove aside our own grumpiness and bring the sunshine to that person right in front of us.
We would make such a difference!
Hear this truth, my friend …
“A cheerful heart is good medicine…” (Proverbs 17:22)
Someone needs your medicine today.
Someone is desperately wanting something good to happen today.
Someone needs to be noticed today.
Let’s be that influencer.
Let’s bring the sunshine!
