This week I heard the song “Difference Maker” by NEEDTOBREATHE and have listened to it several times. The song is about questioning our purpose in life to find out if what we’re doing is really making a difference. In this interview, the band shares this powerful thought:
I feel like the beginning of the song is us asking ourselves are we really difference makers. How valuable are we, really? Towards the end of the song it comes around that God makes us a part of what He does, which is so crazy. It starts with us realizing that we don’t get to make the rules. We don’t control it, and we don’t get to say what the timing is. It’s not because of our talents. He doesn’t need that. He needs our willing hearts.
From our first faculty meeting on, excitement has been in the air on Mustang Mountain. Everyone has been working together, offering to help and serve when needed. It’s evident we have a faculty who wants to make a difference in the lives of our students— and because of that, I’m confident God will do some amazing things this year.
God has brought us all together for this school year for one reason— to be difference makers. I don’t know what that means exactly, so let’s buckle up and enjoy the ride.
