“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.” Vincent von Gogh
I know that life is a series of small steps.
We are here in this world for a duration. Then, we are gone. Some of us squander our opportunity and some of us recognize the possibilities. All of us have the option to change our response to life daily, either negatively or positively.
As a Christian my worldview is different than others with different belief systems. I believe in a good good Father being over all. I believe in a personal Daddy (Abba). I believe He’s involved. But, I’m still an integral part of what happens and how I respond to what happens in my own life.
Christians can find themselves battling around in their theology. They question commitment. They step this way, step back, retrace steps, or stop completely.
I believe that God is helping me constantly. I believe He is involved in even the little things. So where does this good step by step process happen? How does it happen? When does it happen? We as believers sometimes bounce back and forth and even around with: He’s over all, He requires something from me, He gives, He takes. I must do more, I can never do enough. We can be confusing to those outside our faith with our indecisive answers and lives. We can be confusing to ourselves.
It might be better to simply say, “I don’t know how it all works, I just know I trust the One who’s working it and I do small things, take small steps, make small strides letting Him put them all together.
Right now, I’m counting my days. I’ve just lost my mother from this world. I know she is in heaven. But? I’m in a fog. What do I do? What do I do in these moments.
I do what Vincent Von Gogh is talking about. I read to a child. I listen to a friend. I hear my children. I put a dent in the decluttering of a friend’s office. I trust God to take me to the next step. I do the small things.
The picture above is of my mother reading to my granddaughter a few years ago. My granddaughter sat in total rapture as she read. My mom was doing a small thing that added up to a large thing. I hope I can impact my world for God as my mom impacted hers.
Until next week on Monday at some time...
Thanks for meeting me here today.
See you then.
