Little Is Much If God Is In It...


When my heart is full and overflowing with gratitude...

Sometimes we can get so busy and occupied that we can miss what is right in
front of our faces. We have so many blessings!

Firstly, we have the creation to show us that we have a creator!

We have family and friends!
We have fellowship of the brethren!

Gratitude is a choice and even if we have but a little we have much!

"Little is much if God is in it"

We can get stuck in the wrong way of thinking;
We are told that unless we do something big, we are but an unimportant person.
Some are fulfilled in their important jobs,
But we have all heard this statement;
Never have we heard a dying man say this;
"I wish I had worked more hours"

Doing what God has called you to do is a big thing!

This big thing may be rocking a wee little child in the middle of the night.
A big thing might be sewing on a loose button on a shirt or a winter coat.

A big thing might be speaking a word in season.
Encouragement is no small matter, dear ones!

A big thing might be showing hospitality to a stranger.

I am learning to do what I can in little ways;
A little here and a little there...

Please give your husband a big bear hug today!
Smile a really kind smile to someone who looks overwhelmed!
Bake a plate of cookies and give them to a neighbor!
Pray for those you see on the highway and the byways!

Blessings, Living From Glory To Glory

  1. One of my favorite Bible verses is,
    "Let all that you do be done in love."
    1 Corinthians 16:14
    Now, I'm off to give a big hug to my husband!

  2. I could not agree more. Everything we do, no matter how big or small, if done for the Lord, matters. The lady I worked for used to sing that song all the time.

  5. Your blog post title drew me in because it's so true. It's difficult sometimes to keep looking at the blaring big stuff that can sometimes overwhelm when we have all the little blessings around us that can warm our hearts. Happy Thanksgiving to you.
