Change Starts with You [right here, right now]

If your dreaming produces discontentment, then your dreaming is doing more harm than good. 

God’s word says to be content and to give thanks in all circumstances. It even says God will give us the strength to do these things. Much of my dreaming is about how I can expand the kingdom of God in this world. Our world is in desperate need of love and hope, rooted in the unshakable truth of God’s word. But sometimes it’s easy to forget that change begins right here, right now. 

It begins with having coffee with a friend, talking to them about how Jesus changed your life. It begins with reconciling with an old friend, putting aside differences and making up. It’s about making new friends who may not look or think like you. It’s about serving in the community you live in. It begins with a smile, a kind word or gesture that begins a chain reaction of kindness. 

Go ahead, dream big on how you can change the world. God has given you gifts and talents to be used to impact people’s lives. But don't forget change begins with you, right here, right now, in this very moment. 

"And what does the Lord require of you
Except to be just, and to love [and to diligently practice] kindness (compassion),
And to walk humbly with your God [setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness]"

Micah 6:8 [AMP]
