Start where you are

Start where you are

But there is nothing here!

The place has little prospects

A small town

Few people

What about the big world out there?

So many wonderful places

Surely God wants me there!

He wants me to be the light “there!”

Not here

This place is too small

The people… well

I was made for the big stage

The big moments… right?

To bring change in high places

Not in my town

Not in my place of work!

As I stay in wait in Your presence

I hear you whisper

“Child, you are in the right place, start where you are

I have given you all things that pertain to life and godliness. Arise and be the light, be the salt”
