Deep in every person's heart there is a desire that God
might use them for greater good. There is nothing that
remotely approaches this kind of exhilaration, in terms of
the satisfaction, excitement and fulfillment we
experience when we believe we are or have been used as
an instrument in the hands of the Almighty God to do
some of His work... to change the direction of someone's
life, perhaps, to prevent an injury, to resolve an argument,
to answer a challenge, to heal a weakness, to rebuke a
demon, or to point a family, community, city, state,
country or world back to God.
How dare we dig deeper and get the answers... then hide
the light given to us under a basket!
The gifts we were born with were not given to us
haphazardly. While we may never discover what impact
our light has had on others, we can be sure that when we
embrace our talents and share them with others, we will
extend light in the world.
As Believers, whether we like it or
not, we are all like a city upon a hill...
a beacon or lighthouse that cannot be
I believe, when we dare to share our light with the world,
our souls reflect the beauty and loveliness of God living
inside and through us.
I believe if we want to live a good life, if we want to do
good work and make a difference in the world, then we
have to go deep. We have to explore uncomfortable
questions like, “Why am I doing this?” and, “Just because
I can do this, should I?”
What is the driving force
in Carole's life?
My relationship with
God, Who is my greatest
granddaughter and my son!
I have come to fully realize that
God is the only One Who holds the
The trivial pursuit of worldly things may give temporary
fulfillment, but only
devotion to God truly satisfies the soul.
I am a fellow learner; a servant and follower of Jesus
and Divine direction.
Over the years I have been caught up in quite a few
violent storms, troubling days and and have faced many
hardships and heart-breaks. I have been at my lowest
and suffered with numerous setbacks, but I consider
them as rewarding life lessons and stepping stones that
were able to give me clarity and burn away great
amounts of non-sense.
I have come to realize during this journey to healing, no
one can invalidate my experience with God. I accept my
imperfect life. I know that no matter how many times I
have stumbled or fallen, the Father of comfort and mercies
calmed my heart and gave me peace.
Time and time again, I’ve seen God miraculously
come through in my life. This is why I can empathize and
speak a word in season to those who are weary. I firmly
stand on Who God is and what I have seen God do.
I believe, one of the best ways God brings good from our
pain is by allowing us to comfort others with the same
comfort and compassion He gave us. I can now say to
those who may be experiencing a storm, with great
conviction, I know how you feel, because I have been
in your shoes.
God comforted me in all of my dark days of pain so
that I can reach out and comfort others with the
overflowing comfort I received from Him. This has left
me humbled and grateful. It has motivated me to open up
and share with others via this website.
Just as Jesus called the early disciples He calls us to
follow Him. As we follow Jesus, He promises to make us
"fishers of men". And yes, it's a process. The early
disciples learned from their "mistakes". So will we.
Jesus has a way of increasing our skills, knowledge,
wisdom and discernment as we follow Him in
"fishing for men".
Sometimes, we may have to do a triple check...
making sure our relational orbit adds value and not
devalue us. The strings we may have to cut and
the decisions we may have to make may upset and
disappoint those we love, but if we allow ourselves to
become people pleasers, allowing the wrong voices to get
our ear, we may find ourselves pleasing the side-liners and
walking out of our true purpose and passion.
Side-liners can give us an identity that does not fit our
calling. Let us not allow side-liners to drown us in doubt
or steer us away from using our time, talent and treasure
by redefining them.
My greatest desire is God. More than anything, my
desire is to actively pursue God's heart with all of my
heart daily, with wisdom, fervor, and diligence.

unexpected places. It has been an adventure with a
tendency for hurling challenges and opportunities in my

myself and others to continue to grow spiritually.
With enthusiasm... encourage myself and others to tap
into our reservoir of God-given talents and abilities and

I would like to make an inner difference, for the better. I
would love to see the inner differences ripple outward in
such a way that others will benefit from it.

Many people believe that they don’t have what it takes to
make a positive difference in the world. The truth is,
we all have God within us. Every cell of who we are is a
microcosm of God. Each of us were created to contribute
and make a positive difference to our world in our own
unique way. How? Because God, our Creator is within us
and can work and flow through us.
I used to tell myself no one person could fix all that is
wrong in our world. No one person could bring about
peace, especially global peace. As I have matured, I
realize that even one person can "fix" or contribute
Random acts of kindness is such a powerful place to
begin. When we focus on another and truly help them, we
allow for growth in our own lives. Instead of thinking
what’s in it for me, we let go and focus on kindness and
compassion towards another.
We do the world no favors when we
hold ourselves back.
