I have always loved writing stories as a child, it gave me a chance to go into my fantasy world and create characters and their personalities. It was some form of escape from what I considered to be boring chores and things that I thought where no brainers. Reading and writing became my solace.
Today, as I write, I would like to ask you one question:
Are you a game changer?
Webster defines it as, ‘’an event, idea, or procedure that effects a significant shift in the current way of doing or thinking about something.’’ There are so many women who have been game changers before and during our time.
Thesee game changers defied the norm and took a stand for what they believed in. I believe that God wants to raise game changers that will represent him and his kingdom for who he is. The story of Rosa Parks is one that has inspired many. I sometimes wonder what Rosa Parks went through as she made a stand and refused to move from the ‘’colored’’ section of the bus, to give place to a white person. She must have experienced racial segregation so many times that on that particular day, she had had enough and stood up for what she believed in.
‘’The time had just come when I had been pushed as far as I could stand to be pushed, I suppose. I had decided that I would have to know, once and for all, what rights I had as a human being and a citizen.’’ -Rosa Parks-
Her act of defiance became a turning point in the Civil Rights Movement and she became a game changer. The US Congress later called her “the first lady of civil rights” and “the mother of the freedom movement”. Game Changers always stand for a cause. Rosa became a voice for racial justice in her time. By refusing to move, she disturbed the current state of doing things and as a result, gave others the courage to do the same. For the record, Rosa was not the first black woman to do this. Two women before her had done it before, yet Rosa became the one who would be the first lady of the Civil Rights Movement.
So, never give up just because someone else failed. Let your voice be used to bring liberty to those that are in need. There are many game changers in the bible. Sarah, Rebecca, Rahab, Mary the Mother of Jesus to mention a few.
They came, they saw and they changed the rules.
What are you passionate about?
God is calling you to be a game changer! It makes everything amazing, that God is actually the biggest game changer of all times! He trusted no one else to do his job, only his Son Jesus Christ. Whatever you are passionate about, you will first have to do it yourself. God has a plan for you..
