Family, friends and even strangers effect change in us. Know that every person that passes through your life has left their mark on it.
Know that every interaction, good or bad has shaped you into the person you are today. And so it will be until you breath your last.
Embrace the journey, know that whatever you experience in life, there is a reason for it.
Just don't forget to meet the one that will make the most profound effect of all; Jesus. Let Him be the one that has the lasting effect on your inmost self. Let him give you life eternal. Read the gospels and see how every interaction He had with those around Him changed them. Hear His call and respond and be changed for eternity. He is the most important piece in the mosaic of your life. He will complete the masterpiece that is you.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28 ESV
