I just can’t escape the little!
(if you need to catch up, read little…it’s getting louder and follow the links.)
Four times in three days!
First was an Open House I was attending at Homelink, as a potential teacher for the journals we’re working on. It was a bit of a cold turkey event for me, and I felt out-shined, to be honest. But I had given the whole experience to God (again!) on the drive in. As I was expressing my concern to a friend, she said, “It’s little!” with a big smile, because she’d actually read a few of those posts. Oh how I appreciated her encouragement! What a great perspective for me!
The second time was at church during a class we’re taking. As I was chatting with my friend, Joy, somehow the topic came up. She said, “And you’re little“, with a big smile, so I wrote it down on the front of my bulletin. Because I am short of stature. Then my wonderful husband, who stands at least a foot taller than I do, let me know how much he appreciates me and he said, “Little…it’s big!” with a big smile. And I got the warm fuzzies in my tummy. 🙂
The best little, though, was reading Crazy Love.The following quote is p. 96-97
“Remember the visions from John and Isaiah of the throne room of God?
Remember the pictures of the galaxies and how tiny we are in comparison?
Remember the diversity of God, seen in the thousands of species of trees in the rainforest?
How could we think for even a second that something on this puny little earth
compares to the Creator and Sustainer and Savior of all?”
It’s my renewed perspective.
He must increase and I must decrease.
God actually wants me little so that He is magnified…
and that’s the best little there is!!
