You Can Start a Movement

Nehemiah 2:17 Then I said to them, “You see the trouble we are in: Jerusalem lies in ruins, and its gates have been burned with fire. Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace.” 18 I also told them about the gracious hand of my God on me and what the king had said to me. They replied, “Let us start rebuilding.” So they began this good work.

Broken down walls represent a loss of purpose, protection and dignity. For Jerusalem in Nehemiah's day, the broken walls were saying, "We are defeated and overcome!" 

Interestingly, the answer to this desperate situation came from a far away place and from the heart of a man with no personal history in Jerusalem. One man's compassion started a "rebuilding" movement by igniting a flame of hope in the hearts of people ready to be inspired.

Never underestimate your ability to make a difference through the grace of God!
