I’ve already shared how much I love it when God shows me things!
What He’s shown me in the past few days has been very precious to me.
Probably because He’s met me in unexpected places.
Like a Facebook post.
When I clicked on that notification, I was blown away! God whispered, “little…it’s big” as I read.
- a little girl (between 1st – 3rd grade)
- a little boy
- a little town
- a little competition in
- a little church
Who knew?! One little act that I barely remember. I certainly don’t remember the contest or who won! And I don’t think I knew the impact of that invitation until Mrs. Champion posted this on my Facebook many, many years later! My sweet Savior knows how much I need affirmation, and He gave it to me. Not where or when I expected, but then again, His ways aren’t mine and His thoughts are higher than mine. Please know that all the glory goes to HIM! I only shared this to show how He met me and encouraged me.
But God had more for me!
A field trip to Fleet Week and a tour of a the USS Dewert. Amazing! Fun! Lots of BIG on those ships! Not a place I expect to hear God. Until we got to the navigation room. Check out the steering wheel! Can you even see it?!
I literally said out loud, “Are you serious?!” and started laughing. Then I started snapping pictures because, again, God whispered in my ear, “little…it’s big.” And the field trip took on a whole new meaning!
But God had more for me!!
Field trip #2 this week – the very next day. Went to Tim’s school, Palm Beach Atlantic, to make mugs and watch one of the professors give a demonstration using the potter’s wheel. Some neat lessons to share later. A lot of potter/clay stuff I’ve heard before, UNTIL Professor Craft took a small mug, like the ones we’d made, and placed it next to his big vase. Then he said, “It wouldn’t be too good to drink your cocoa or coffee out of this big pot. God created some of us just to be little mugs. So be happy with the mug God has created you to be.” Tim was ecstatic – eyes wide, hands pointing – “there it is again!” 🙂 So I took the picture because, indeed, there it was again!
I’m overwhelmed at the precious gifts God has given me in the past few days!! They really have been gifts~ very personal ones. Would you believe that as I’m working on this post, the middle school boys’ life group is meeting in the living room talking about how God uses little things and we should be happy with those?! After these past few weeks, I’m not surprised!
Maybe my perspective is slowly starting to change so that I can say little…it’s precious.
Do you have any precious gifts God has given you lately, big or little?
