Each of Us Can Change Someone’s World
I’ve often heard people say that no matter how firmly they stand by their principles, they can try their hardest but one person cannot change the world.
That could not be farther from the truth.
Sometimes I believe they tell themselves that so that they don’t feel guilty for not trying to do more for people in this life.
While most of us may never have an opportunity to do something that the world will forever remember us for, God provides all of us with opportunities to change SOMEONE’S world.
In looking at the big picture, we sometimes overlook these chances and underestimate their power.
You just never know when a seemingly small action may change someone’s world.
An encouraging word, a kind gesture or a simple act that could take someone from hopelessness to hopefulness, from despair to joy, from failure to success, or even from the brink of death to life.
Never underestimate the power that your words and actions may have on another person. Love can move mountains and change lives.
Sometimes it’s the little things that matter the most.
By changing even one life, you are changing the world.
One Woman Who Brought Change to the Lives of Many
Although there are many people throughout history who have changed countless lives, I’m dedicating this post to an amazing woman named Irena Sendler.
Irena was truly an angel sent to earth.
Living in German-occupied Poland during World War II, Irena took a job working in the sewers, risking her life to smuggle Jewish children out of the Warsaw ghetto.
The Żegota managed to save her by bribing the guards, and Irena spent the remainder of the war in hiding.
Sadly, most of the parents had been executed, but those children were placed with foster families or put up for adoption.
Sendler received many awards for her bravery. In 2007, she was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, but astonishingly was not selected.
This angel was called home to be with the Lord in 2008 at the age of 98.
Not only was Irena Sendler a hero in the true sense of the world, she was living proof that one person CAN change the world.
