THE POWER OF ONE

The power of one is not about just someone
Acting alone 
It's the power that one person has 
When stepping out of comfort zones 
It's the power that comes from trusting 
And having faith in the Lord God 
It's the power of sacrifice 
and giving from the heart

So many times we doubt our ability
To make a difference in life 
But in the grand scheme we need to realize 
That we have a gift from Christ 
As God has a greater purpose for us
In His master plan 
And your gift is important 
As it comes from His hands 
Just realize that you might not be the star
But a part of the supporting cast 
And your gift is a needed contribution
For the project to be completed at last 
God has given you a gift 
And its for you to share
Don't think you're insignificant 
And don't feel like a spare
For its not how you want to live
Its how God guides your life
Yes you can make a difference 
Just trust in the Lord Christ 

You might not have been the surgeon 
But the nurse who dispensed the medication 
You might not have been the producer
But the one who gave the film direction 
Understand that opportunities to showcase the gift
That God gave to you 
Will come at appointed times 
For you to do what you must do 
And don't allow that 4 letter word known as fear
Keep you immobilized and standing scared
For you have love, a sound mind and the power of one 
Don't let anybody tell you that it cannot be done 
Never forget who you are as a child of the King 
No longer stuck on stupid never accomplishing anything

Now to be like Queen Esther who stepped out on faith
For such a time as this 
To enter the king's chamber her opportunity 
Not to missed
And even knowing that she could perish
And lose it all
She took her gift her power of one 
And answered her God call
And still today we honor Queen Esther 
For her courage and faith in the Lord
She took her power of one and got on board 
Possessing intentionality, purpose
And a decisive spirit
She went to save her people 
And by the grace of God she did it
