change_world[1]“A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in the mission can alter the course of history.” Mahatma Gandhi

The odds are not good. There are more of them than there are of us. We need more money, equipment, resources, talent and critical mass. Most people give up and experience great disappointment in life and their own powerlessness. Quitting does not satisfy, inspire or achieve. History is full of armies and people who faced impossible odds—1,000,000 to zero—not a chance! And they overcame. They had an unquenchable faith in their mission. They knew what they believed and that was their core and it affected all they did.

My theme for 2014 is “Presence then Power”. I am first seeking to experience God’s presence. I want to be aware of Him in my life—feel His comfort, correction and challenge. I want to get a clearer sense of His voice so I can hear Him speak affirmation, love and guidance to me. Then my approach to every day and event will be stronger—even powerful.

What will you do with your days and with this year? How will you use your power to change the world?

Read Philippians 3:13-14.
