Linking up again today with Lisa Jo to join in the fun of writing for 5 minutes.
Today’s word is SMALL!
I often feel small, insignificant…unable to make a real difference in the world.
While I want to make an impact for the Kingdom, I am not traveling to Africa to work in the mission field, I’m not speaking at conferences or writing books. How can I possibly make an impact when I am “just” a wife and a mother.
And then God uses His Word, His stories, to remind me that there are so many seemingly small people that He has used throughout history to do His will.
Mary was just a teenager.
Gideon was just a farmer.
David was just a shepherd.
Each of these people lived small, normal lives – until God called them to much greater things.
I believe that God has greater things planned for each of us.
For some of us it may mean that we work really hard to help support our family – and to our kids, our spouse, we are a hero.
Some of us will travel to other countries spreading love to orphans, the getting there will take faith and hard work as well…but when we follow God’s plan we will see the impossible become the possible.
Recently God has asked me to share some difficult stories, to test the boundaries of my comfort zone, and to take my small and difficult past and use it for His glory.
Whatever it is that He has called you to, don’t believe for a second that it isn’t important!
Friends you have a story to tell. The enemy may try and tell you that those stories don’t matter, that you can’t make a difference because you are too small and insignificant.
But hear me on this – God want’s our hearts humble so we can serve Him. He uses the small, the “just a” kind of people and makes mighty things happen for His Kingdom.
Philippians 4: 13 (ESV) “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
