You are the Amazing People!!

I’m a sucker for America’s Got Talent. Sometimes it is amazing, other times it’s like a train wreck you can’t help but watch!

Sometimes I wonder why people subject themselves to the ridicule and the insults (especially from Piers!) They are wanting approval for their talent so bad they are willing to argue with three people they don’t even know, and sometimes the whole audience, about whether they were good or not.

Some folks are really bad, but others are good – just not good enough to make it to the next round. You can see it on the judge’s faces – “we want you to be good enough, but you’re not.” You can see the pain (on Howie and Sharon, not Piers…he is not a nice man), you can hear it in their voice. And watching this week after week – I’m still left wondering “why do that to yourself?”

This little girl helped me understand why they do it. Her name is Anna Graceman. She’s from Alaska and is 4′ 3″. She does have talent – she did amazing in her performance (you can find it yourself on youtube). It wasn’t her performance that showed me why people do it – it was her response to the praise. In tears she said:

“It’s really amazing to have amazing people like them to tell me I’m good too…”

Everyone who watched her knew she was great – but she needed to hear three people she didn’t know, other than by reputation, tell her she was good.

Here’s the point of this post – every Sunday that you serve, every week you work with Kids, every week you give your all to work with those God has entrusted us with – YOU ARE THE AMAZING PEOPLE!!

You’re kind words, your encouragement, your love can show a child something in themselves they thought no one would see! You have the opportunity to say something that changes the life of a child. Never forget the opportunity you have each week you serve – because you truly are amazing people!

  1. Thank you Pastor Spencer for the encouraging word. We as volunteers do get tired and weary and think we are not making a difference or that no one notices our sacrifice. It is good to hear how amazing we are. You are pretty amazing yourself.
