What you CAN do.

We were really moved by the comments on the blog yesterday. It was so cool to see people open up and admit their insecurities when asked to finish this sentence:

I feel like I can’t make a difference in the world because . . .

I feel like I can’t make a difference in the world because my own life demands so much time.Laura

I’m the only person holding me back, and I let insignificant matters get in my way. Wanting to change the world is something I’ve always talked about, and despite my love for them, words have never meant much to me in this way. I hear inspiring speeches and get all pumped up to take action and then… I don’t.Adebambo

I don’t know how I, a student in college, could make such a large difference to any group of people.Miranda

I feel like I can’t make a difference in the world because I can’t commit fully to any one humanitarian cause.Hannah

I feel like I can’t make a difference in the world because I’m not enough: not smart enough, not charismatic enough, not together enough, not skilled enough, not connected enough…

Those are just a few of the responses chosen by random. They’ll each be receiving a copy of Little Princes: One Man’s Promise To Bring Home The Lost Children of Nepal.

We’re not done though! We want to continue the conversation and this time switch it around to be a bit more positive! Today one lucky commenter will receive a copy of The Journey Is The Destination: The Journals of Dan Eldon. Comment below by finishing this sentence:

I feel like I CAN make a difference in the world because . . .

    I feel like I CAN make a difference in the world because I can make the world better for at least one person today. I know that. I’m confident that if we all live consistently like that the number of lives made better will grow exponentially. It’s possible.

    I feel like I CAN make a difference in the world because I am like the mustard seed. I may not matter significantly in the grand scheme of things, but God made me for a reason. I can’t let my insecurities of youth hold me back when I know that with God, I can do anything for the greater good.

    (oh, good – I’m glad you turned it around.)

    I feel like I CAN make a difference in the world because I can help other people who are making a difference. I can volunteer.

    I know I’m a little late commenting, but I wanna share mine anyway. I feel like I CAN make a difference in the world because I know God has blessed me with so many talents (and I’m still discovering some) and I know that through Him all things are possible. I know it’s possible to make a difference in this world. It’s just going to take hard work and dedication on all of our parts. I CAN make a difference through Christ!
