Touched by the lives of others

Living in a new place for about 3 months now has prompted me to think about the people who have had an influence on my life over the past 47 years.

God has put many people in my life just when I needed them to be there.  Some for long periods of time, others for shorter periods.  Some have had deep involvement and profound impact.  Others have had less of a far-reaching scope on my life, yet still were an important influence.

Study and scripture has been bringing many of these to mind lately.  They’ve even showed up in seemingly random dreams.

We were put here and saved for the purpose of bringing glory to God.  One way we do that is by the way we influence the lives of those around us.  As I’m beginning to make new connections, I am more and more aware of the impact He would have me make on the lives around me.  I desire to be intentional in the ways that I interact with them.  I’m thankful for the MANY that have been a part of my life.
