It only takes ONE…

Have you ever thought about the incredible power of ONE?

It took ONE man named Walt Disney to completey change and revolutionize family fun and vacations—creating Walt Disney World.

It took ONE woman named Nancy Goodman Brinker, who would go through her sister’s painful death, to completely change Cancer awareness—creating the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and Race For The Cure.

It took ONE couple named Bill & Lois Wilson, who would go through the horrible experience of alcoholism, to have the heart and ability to help millions who struggle too—creating Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon.

It took ONE very broken, bullied, and wounded little girl named Christine, to grow up and allow God to use her story to help millions of men and women to find incredible freedom—creating Christine Caine Ministries.

It took ONE mom, who was living in absolute poverty, to want better for her children—today, her son, Dr. Ben Carson, is running for President of the United States. Ben graduated from Yale, and was the first surgeon to successfully separate conjoined twins joined at the head. At 33 yrs of age, he became the youngest major division director in the history of John Hopkins Hospital.

It took ONE man to realize how broken he was, completely and radically changing evangelism—creating Billy Graham Ministries. Today, millions personally know of the love, grace, forgiveness and mercy of Christ!

As you can see, all it takes is ONE person to CHOOSE to make a strong difference in the world. It takes ONE to say, “God, use me and my life to make a difference!” Anyone can CHOOSE to leave a lasting legacy—it just takes making a choice and seeing that decision through each and every day!

What difference can YOU choose to make today? What are your talents, convictions, and passions? What has helped or hurt you in life? What needs do you see around you? What do you feel is your life purpose?

Your life can absolutely make a difference in the lives around you—your spouse, children, family, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandchildren, grandparents, friends, fellow church members, neighbors, coworkers, etc.

Here’s to leaving a lasting legacy from this day forward!

No matter your past…anyone can choose to leave an incredible legacy starting today!

Make life count! You are so very valuable and your ONE life CAN make a difference!

Gratitude & blessings,
