How to Make a Difference Right Where You Are –– Part III

Oh my goodness! In trying to find what I posted on last week, I came across an old post from a little over two years ago…from the day after my birthday in 2015. The post was called “God’s Timing is a Platitude.” Oooooo! Was I cynical! I was hurt, disappointed, and felt in limbo. My, how things have changed. #makeadifferencerightwhereyouare

Even a year ago, I was in a state of disappointment, having had one thing after another after another. I’m not going to review those again. My point this week, and I’ve written on this before, is that sometimes, you can make a difference in your own life.

I have other posts on how to strengthen yourself in the Lord. Check those out. That’s what will get you through when your circumstances make you wanna to throw in the towel and give up. I have other posts about not giving up, that perseverance is the key. And it is.

This year has been the most amazing year of my life! Yes, I’ve had some things…two teeth extractions, two bouts of the flu, a root canal.

But oh my! The good, the great, the wonderful, the outstanding, have definitely already overridden the bad, the pain, and the hard.

Because I learned in the midst of the pain, to worship the Lord. Not easy when all you want to do is yell and scream…which was me on the inside. So, you can make a difference in your own life by the choices you make for yourself. Click to Tweet

I am unashamedly a follower of Jesus. My life would be nothing without Him.

The last two weeks have been incredibly amazing for me. It started during my normal watch at the local House of Prayer. A young woman asked me to pray for her. I think I got more of a blessing than she did. I had to share it. So, I texted three people, and talked with two of them.

As soon as I got off the phone with my “new” aunt, I got an email that said I made the finals of a writing contest. That never happens to me! Never. Then, this last week, at a writers’ retreat in North Carolina, I got two 1st Place Awards! That also never happens to me!

I am so astounded at God’s goodness being poured on me. It’s almost more than I can handle. When I came across my old blog post, I wanted to cry because I felt sorry that I’d felt that bad –– and it was only a couple years ago.

What a difference a year or two makes. How can you make a difference in your own life today? Take a short look back and see where you’ve come. Click to Tweet #makeadifferencerightwhereyouare

For a purpose

The blog site of Rick Wade


Where it is a good thing to be an outcast.


We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; let your light shine through your cracked pot. Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, That's how the light gets in and comes out.
