My mother and grandmother told me that just a touch of a particular spice or flavoring can change the taste and texture of a food. They reminded me that good food can change the atmosphere, your attitude, and it can create a feeling of joy. They encouraged me to light up the world.
At a wedding they ran out of wine, Jesus touched the water and it changed to wine…. the party continued.
At a time in need, Jesus shared a meal, fed the multitudes, changed the atmosphere and changed lives.
My chiropractor was explaining how he could make a simple adjustment or manipulation and touch the spine to alleviate pain. He stated that it is amazing how it can help a person walk or move better in a matter of minutes. He helped me believe that any man can have the ability to heal a person in many different ways.
Jesus healed the sick, blind, lepers and the broken; all it took was a touch.
My father and coach told me that all it takes is a positive attitude and a touch of determination to help change the momentum of a game from seemingly insurmountable odds. Just believe in yourself and trust in your ability. They told me to apply it to all situations with consistency.
Against all odds, David slew the giant Goliath and all it took was faith and one stone to change the destiny of a nation.
We all have the ability to change a situation with a touch of kindness and a sprinkle of love. A simple smile can light up a room, a hug and kiss can warm the soul, or a kind word can change a mood and heal a broken heart. Words of encouragement and prayers of hope and faith have the ability to create miracles. It doesn’t take much to change things, just faith the size of a mustard seed and the willingness to reach out.
We all can make a difference!
