The things we say…the things we do…it DOES matter. It all matters. You are…

Making a dent in the universe.

We are the hands and feet of Christ. | Read more about making a dent in the Universe... artofabeautifullife.comThat thing you just thought about someone, that nice thought you had about them, TELL them. It WILL matter. That person you thought of when you read that inspiring book, send it to them. Now. Right now. That thought might be a DIVINE nudging. God may be using YOU to speak life into that person. Don’t wait until you forget or chicken out. I know. Sometimes these things…these NICE things…even take courage, don’t they?

We get self-conscious. We start hearing the voices in our head. The voices will tell us that what we say does not matter to them, that they will think we are foolish, that they will find fault with what we say. Honestly, sometimes it happens. But mostly…those voices are lies.

And sometimes it may only seem like it doesn’t matter. Someone may not respond because they do not know how. Many of us are new to this whole people loving on us thing.

“Christ has no body on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which Christ’s compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now.”

~Saint Teresa of Avila 

Let’s be BRAVE. Let’s ALL be brave. If in no other way, let us be brave and do THIS. The reach from one seemingly small act could be FAR. All it takes is to stir something in ONE person for that person to start a mission of their own. It is the ripple effect.

That $5 or $10 that you didn’t donate because it felt too little, it matters. Every little bit is a seed that counts and a thought that counts. God looks at the HEART. And we are His hands and feet to love on people in the flesh.

Do not let any good thing be left unsaid.

Life is short. People matter. Kindness matters. Little gestures matter. That kind thought you are thinking of someone right now could sow seeds of greatness in their life. It could be the thing that might begin to slowly turn everything around for them just because someone, just because YOU, spoke a kindness from your heart or reached out to them in some way.

Show up. Speak up. This is where life is LIVED. Live the story you want to tell. BE the MAGIC.

Write a note. Write a letter. TELL them. Give that gift. Share that quote. Give a hug. POUR into people from your heart.  Let’s do it. Let’s all be brave. Let’s take the time. Let’s make a difference. Let’s make a dent.

Writing on the wall of life,

~Topaz
