You, my friend, have the power to influence others in a positive manner. You have a minute by minute choice to be a positive or negative influence on the people around you.
You don’t have to be famous, rich or successful. You don’t need an impressive degree or lots of followers on social media. You do not have to be a specific age, nationality or personality is not a requirement, and you’re not limited by your job, location or marital status or political views.
Romans 12:2, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (NIV)
I believe within every woman’s heart is the desire to be successful, positive and encouraging. Whether we are buried under loads of laundry or piles of dish, climbing the corporate ladder in our business suits, or serving the least of these, you can be a positive influence on others. You may be here or in the mission field. Who and wherever you are, God gives you opportunities to do good and encourage others. Each one of us has lots and lots of opportunities to influence our kids and grand kids, our fiends and coworkers and maybe even our friends on social media.
God uses ordinary people like you and me to do extraordinary things! Although we are not perfect and because of God’s grace and power in and through us, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. As Jesus said: ““I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 (NIV)
