Ordinary people, doing extraordinary things make a difference in this world

Hatred won’t change the world, love will. The impact of inspirational stories leaves a personal touch on the receiving heart. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.”

Making a difference in the life of another person can have a profound effect. In many cases, the difference creates a domino effect of paying it forward.

What has impacted your life? What inspired you to be a better person, a better parent, a better wife, or husband, a better neighbor? Was it a news story you saw that brought you to tears? Was it an heart touching episode that directly impacted what you experienced? Maybe it was a song that spoke to your heart. Or a simple kind gesture from a stranger that inspired you.

Making a difference in this world can be simple. It doesn’t require one person to campaign against social injustice of this world. It doesn’t mean one should organize a concert and raise thousands of dollars to rid the world of terrible diseases. All of these are great, but it doesn’t have to be that grand. It could be as simple as a listening to a grieving friend or babysitting for a single mom.

Every person has a circle of life, a circle of people within their life that shapes their environment. What if you were to be the seed in that circle that made the difference?

What if you brought inspiration and encouragement right where you are? Take a moment and look around you for there are many opportunities within your circle. You can make a difference.

“Using the power of decision gives you the capacity to get past any excuse to change any and every part of your life in an instant.”
Well, think about standing in a completely dark room with no lamps or light switches. You light a candle, and suddenly there’s a little light, and the darkness doesn’t seem quite as bad. Then, slowly, people join you, until there are a hundred people with a hundred candles. Now the room is bright-and the darkness is gone!
Maybe you can’t change the world, but you can change your world. God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things. He can use you right where you are.
“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.”

It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” “The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you.

SADA-E-WATANBy Pervez Saleem “What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.” “The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others.”———————————————————————————— Hitch a night ride for free… with Hyderabad’s dynamic duo… Two Good Samaritans…Making A Difference Late into the night, as traffic begins to disappear on the roads of Hyderabad, Sindh the streets are all but abandoned.
