" I now know that I can’t save them all . . . but I can make a difference for one. Mother Teresa once said, 'If I look at the mass I will never act. If I look at the one, I will.' " Noel Brewer Yeats - Awake, Doing a World of Good one Person at a Time.
All of this being said.. please don't turn away, because I want to tell you something, and to be honest it is not easy for me to write. I feel like you are gonna see this post and think that this is going to turn into a blog that is always trying to sell ya something, or get money out of you, or the very least be this depressing place filled with pictures of starving children. I promise that this will never be the case, but I also promise to tell you the truth, and the truth is.. we are called to love people, all people, not just the people that are easy to love but all of them.
There are many needs in the world and we can't and aren't supposed to help everyone. It can be so hard to know what to do.. but I will say this; we are not supposed to just sit and do nothing. We need to take our eyes off of the masses and put them on Jesus. He will bring you the people you are called to love and minister to.
We are called to love those God brings across our paths, not just busy our selves with life and pretend someone else will step up.
"If only we could let go of the things that inhibit us from being who we were meant to be. So many distractions keep us from being who we were meant to be and doing what we were meant to do." -Noel Brewer Yeats, Awake (pg. 51)
" The poor do not need our sympathy and our pity, the poor need our love and compassion." - Mother Theresa
