Have you ever asked the question, “Do I matter?”

Well, yes, you do.

Join me and host, Luann Prater in the Encouragement Cafe radio show where we discuss One Woman Matters.

We discuss how one woman, Amy Carroll, went way outside her comfort zone to minister in India, and how that trip showed her how powerful one woman can be. She wrote about her experience in Proverbs 31 Ministries magazine (read it here).

But do you have to go to India to find God’s path for you? No, because you matter in your family. You matter in your church. You matter in your community. You matter to God.

Listen to to this week’s radio show and ask yourself this question, “God, how can I show a woman that she matters? What is one thing I can do today to make a difference, large or small?”

You never know how that small or large act will impact others, and perhaps have impact far beyond what you can see or anticipate?

Now this is important, there’s a benefit:

Compassion is a learned skill.

The more you practice it, the more it becomes ingrained. And the more that compassion becomes a part of your DNA, the more that you live free because your life gets bigger than your own problems.

To live free: Practice compassion.

Scripture: 1 John 4:7  Beloved, let us love one another,  for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.

Just you and God: You matter. Maybe you are not doing the big things like going to India, but open your eyes to the need around you.
