Friends, this has been heavy on my heart these last days.
I often think my days filled with laundry, schooling, cooking and loving seem like such a small stone to throw in this big 'ole lake of life.
I lie awake some nights wondering how I can live out what God has planned for me.
I know it just can't be me. I'm certain there are many reading this right now that have often wondered the same thing. I mean, we're ladies, right?! We are ALWAYS thinking about something! :)
The world is struggling friends.
There is craziness on every side.
Fear runs rampant among us.
We just want to hunker down under a pile of soft blankets with just our eyes peeping out.
We want to hide.
And this is when then small stone can make a BIG difference!
Sweet friends, if you are so blessed to be home serving your family - then serve them well. If you are a working momma - be thankful you have a job and serve your employer well! If you are a single momma - take heart God is on your side. He will NEVER fail you or your kids! If you aren't a mom at all - then live your life with abandon for God! You have the ability of undivided focus that those of us with spouses and kids don't have.
Your life may only be a small stone but goodness friends, small stones can make a big impact. When the kids are at the lake throwing in stones it doesn't matter the size it always, always changes the water!
Even the smallest stone changes the smooth surface of the pond or lake. It sends forth ripples out across that surface that surprises us due to its' size.
The time is now.
We need to live our lives with intention.
We need to let our small stones make an impact on this world.
We might not think we have anything to offer but that's just a lie that we choose to believe because those blankets are too safe and we like our comfort more than making a difference.
The world NEEDS what we have to offer even if it is small.
Because after all, small stones can make a BIG difference just look at what a small stone did to Goliath!
(1st Samuel 17: 49-50) Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell face down on the ground.
