I Am Feeling Driven To Make A Difference

Published November 26, 2013 by Angela

I don’t necessarily think it is strictly this time of year, as I have been feeling this pull for quite some time now. It seems as I begin, FINALLY, to get my life in order, I feel compelled to help others who are in need. But where to start? I have always felt a special draw to those who are homeless, and it seems to be worse than ever in my area.

Is there something I can do, beyond giving money to someone on a corner (no, I do not do that), donating food and blankets to local pantries, or volunteering at a shelter? I know all of these things help, but I am feeling like it isn’t enough, or especially that it is not what I am supposed to be doing.

There is something else, something I should be doing, some skill I have that I am not realizing that can make a difference, even if only for one person.

It seems like the more I pray, the more I feel content with where I am personally with my life, the more unrest I feel about everything around me. What am I missing that I should be doing? I feel like there is a big flashing sign over my head that I forgot to look at, telling me what to do.

Do I wait for God to show me what I can feel but not yet see? Do I jump in and do something until I figure out what the right thing is? How do I begin to make a difference when I’m not sure where to start? 

I know no matter what I do, I need to do it now, because every second, and every gesture, does help and can and will make a difference, for someone, me included!
