This is difficult to pinpoint one person. Because; I can’t really think of one person that has made a massive impact on me in the last few weeks or months…
That’s not a sad thing. Perhaps living in community, rubbing shoulders with others… people make small impacts on our lives along the way.
If we added all those little impacts that would surely amount to something big?
This morning, I sat in a little church in Secunda where an 83 year old woman preached with such conviction.
He words, the message she delivered… carried an impact 🙂
As I drove home today from visiting my girlfriend, in those 5 hours, many artists made an impact on me with their lyrics:
“And if I am your child
Then why should this side us
Let fear overcome my line of sight
I’ll be more inclined to You” (Matthew Mole)
“Open up your hands
Synchronize your plans and find the way to go
Open up your hands
Synchronize your plans and find the way home” (Matthew Mole)
“You live your life like you’re not in control.
Like you’re playing a role.
You live your life like you’re not in control.
Like you’re playing a role (convince me).
You wonder why it always ends the same (convince me).
You wonder why it always ends
(destroy what you create)
Wonder why it always ends, it always ends the same” (Taking Back Sunday)
“If you need some quiet time
To process all that guilt
Well the desert lasts for days and out there
There’s nothing else to do” (Taking Back Sunday)
“So, put a posy in your hair
Pretend you couldn’t give a care
Whistle past the graveyard
Even the dead deserve a song” (Twin Forks)
So there you have it. Some little impacts combined for a greater affect!
Who knows, maybe even the words you say may inspire others? Use your words wisely. Speak adding light and love to others!
