Difference Maker

Have you ever wondered what kind of a difference you make as a Christian working in the hospital? I know I have. Unfortunately, most times we have no clue whether or not we made any impact on the lives of our patients. Then there those times when God decides to bless us with special reminders of why we do what we do—to love people like Jesus loves them and loves us. 

Within the past year, I have received notes from a family member as well as a former patient thanking me for simply caring. Many times we don’t realize how showing the love of Christ and praying with patients and their families can encourage people, especially when it’s in the darkest times of their lives.

So on the days that we feel like we’re just going through the motions, let’s remember that what we do does really make a difference. You—I—each one of us makes a difference on the world around us.

“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:9).
