I feel so at peace for the first time in my life.  For as long as I can remember I’ve felt this inner unease.  I couldn’t have explained it or come anywhere close to having anyone understand how I was feeling.  I’m not sure I would’ve had the words to use to truly express what was going on inside me; my mind, heart, soul.  Such conflict.  Confusion.  A battle.

I searched and searched for an answer to it all and kept coming up short.   No way to end the war going on inside of me.  At least, none that I could see.

I realized that I was trying to find a fix to the issue on my own and that, quite simply, it was impossible.  Wasn’t going to happen.  I needed help.

So, who or what might help?  I tried all sorts of various things.  None worked.  Nothing.  I tried talking to lots of different people from friends and family to even doctors.   Help me?  Quiet all of it down, please?   They couldn’t.   Tried, sure.   But they couldn’t help me.

Why does it take us so long to find wisdom?  He makes it so easy to find, yet we still look everywhere else first so very often.

I figured it out.  No doubt He helped by shoving me in the right direction.

Prayer.

My Bible.

All I ever needed was Him.

He created me; knit me in my mother’s womb.

He knows me because I am His.  All His.

I wasted so much time.   Time that I’m not sure was even mine to waste, but I know He’ll take care of it.

I found Him, and there is where I found all the answers.  It was always there.

He is always there for us when we’re ready to find Him.

Numbers.  I’ve never been particularly good with them.  Even as a child in school, dealing with numbers wasn’t a favored task.  However, using numbers is a huge part of every person’s life.  They’re a source for many various types of information.  Some of which is good, some bad, often indifferent.  Statistics are used every single day to give people all over the world all sorts of information about all sorts of issues.

Numbers can be great when they tell us our favorite sports team just won a game or give us some other information that’s considered positive in our minds.  However, they can also make us feel bad, such as when we’re dieting and the numbers we see on the scale aren’t what we wish they were.  They can also fool us and deceive us.  They can even hurt people in need.

How can numbers hurt people in need? Quite simply, by making us feel that our efforts are worthless, and by making us feel that one person surely can’t be of that much help when the number of people in need is so very great.

Studies have shown that people will care, and therefore do, more for the plight of one child, than they will if the need is for a large group of people.  In our minds we can grasp the needs of a single family much easier than the needs of an entire country.   It seems that the larger the number in need is, the more numb our minds and hearts get.  It’s easier to depersonalize larger groups.  We can more easily  justify doing nothing when we feel that the need is so great we can’t personally fix it.  We often say that there is strength in numbers, but when it comes to poverty, larger numbers don’t give us strength at all and instead actually give only a sense of hopelessness.  .

However, in the Bible, God plainly tells us that even only one can accomplish much.  One can indeed save many.  One has saved all who care to take His offer of salvation as their own.

When the disciples brought it to Jesus’ attention that there were large numbers of people that were hungry and in need of food, Jesus told them simply, “You feed them.”   With faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, one can truly make a difference in the lives of many.  With Him helping us, we are capable of doing so much more than we could ever imagine.

You are one and yes you can make a difference.  All you have to do is choose to follow Him.
