Why the Little Things?

Longing…Oh the stretching, longing, burning…

The dream of what could be, where to go, but how to get there hangs in the air…

We can’t see it. The journey from here to there, but the hope of there is planted firmly in our hearts.

The here seems insignificant, unimportant, little. Oh but what we do here in the seemingly insignificant, unimportant, and little is what shapes the journey. What we do with the little we have matters because when we are faithful in what seems little, He gives us more.

Remember the parable of the talents? (Matthew 25:14-30). When the servant is faithful in small things, God gives that servant more. Not to stress over, but more talents to use for His glory.

So I challenge you all who feel like God has given you “little” (laundry, dishes, little hands and feet, an insignificant job, a small blog, whatever it is that seems little to you), do the “little” things well and then He can entrust you with the “big” things. (FYI little hands and feet are not little things even if they seem that way some days. They are BIG things.)

My dream is that Rethinking My Thinking ministries will flourish for God’s glory. That I will speak and write His words to encourage and challenge others to be more like Him. That together we will walk this journey of faith in order to bring glory, praise and honor to the Lord Jesus Christ. Honestly that big dream, seems unreachable at times. Oh, but if it is God’s will it will happen. In the mean time I am reaching who He wants me to…You! 😉 I pray that this blog is a blessing and encouragement to you. I pray that as I share the things God is teaching me, you are  challenged to walk closer to Him. All for His glory….

So with that in mind, what would you like to hear from me? Are there any topics or specific encouragement you need? I want to serve God by serving you. Let me know! I can’t wait to hear from you.

  1. Thank you for that reminder. He just wants US. I like your title, rethinking my thinking. I think this is so important and something we should always be doing! I also really appreciated what you had to say at Like A Warm Cup of Coffee.

    Please feel free to stop by: Trailing After God

    • Melinda,

      So glad this reminder blessed you. God has blessed me in it.
      My title was totally a God thing. He brought it to me as I was memorizing Romans 12:2.
      So glad that what I said on Sarah Mae’s blog blessed you. I appreciate that conversation and we must be careful how we tread both ways. 😉

      Blessings to you too,

    Well, Miss Angela, you’ve made me rethink my thinking, and I’m going to try to work on my feeble writing talents. As such, I am doing a Bible journal for the churchwide chronological study on WordPress at Polishing Rough Thoughts. We’ll see how long this one lasts…

    As far as topics go, may I suggest a topic on accountability?

    Keep on publishing your thots. I love how you bring everyday experiences to the light of God’s teachings and truths. Judy
