to change the world

the winner of the giveaway is lindsey. congrats! you have been contacted. 
People are small. We are weak, we break down in tears sometimes, we all will die. But we can make a difference. There have been many people who have changed the world. 

How? I wonder. I don't want to be known because I tortured people or killed thousands. And yet I don't even want to be known as the person who was a success or was beautiful on the outside. I don't even want to be known in this world if that means all the glory goes to me. I want to stand out, but that doesn't mean I want to be popular. I want to be known as the woman who was on fire for Christ. Not the beautiful woman, not the woman who did good deeds. Sure, I want to do good things for people. But not so I'll be popular.

 I just want to reflect Christ, someway, somehow. It's hard. I hope Jesus shines through me. I really, really hope He does. But the more I go on this journey, the more I seem to find things that I'm missing out on, things that need work. I'll never be perfect. Yet I can still try to show Jesus.

    1. *ahem* actually, I won a giveaway a long time ago from my friend Hannah, and SHE did it. :) Just wanted to clarify that. It says so on the bottom of my blog, but I just didn't feel like it was right to add that I got a new blog design from her on this certain post. And you're right, this is a lovely design. she's super talented.

      of course I wouldn't mind you ordering from me though...*winks*.

  4. Kendra, this is exactly how I feel! I don't care of what this world think of me, I only think of Jesus and how he can use me to change the world! That's why I am desperate to be a missionary! Amen Kendra, Amen!
