Fresh Hope – 17th March 2020

On the inside of every person is a God-given gift that the world needs. Maybe that gift will serve millions, maybe it will serve a handful, but either way, you have something to contribute.

Don’t believe the lie that nobody wants to hear what you have to say, and certainly don’t believe the lie that the world would be a better place without you. Friend, you are of great value and can add value to whatever environment you find yourself in!

Whether it’s the classroom, the workplace, the home, these are all places that can be made better because of you.

Now, of course, we shouldn’t assert ourselves in a brash sort-of-way, but should approach every opportunity with humility.

I’m sure like me, you’ve encountered people who light up a room when they step into it. They don’t take from the atmosphere, they add to it. Particularly in the unique times we currently find ourselves in, our world needs people like this. People who add value, people who add perspective. Those who contribute joy and hope to any given scenario.

Today, don’t shy away, but be confident that you have something to contribute, and that your contribution can have a positive impact on the lives of those around you.
