On Sunday, my pastor reminded me of something I tend to forget:
God doesn’t demand I do big things for Him in order to bring glory to Him.
He demands that I remember He is the Big Thing.
And I can bring God great glory as a mom and wife, if I honor Him in the little, every day choices:
giving my kids freedom to fail and fly, without controlling
being the first to say I’m sorry
being slow to speak, slow to anger
remembering it’s okay to be okay
Sometimes He asks Big Things of us (usually when we least expect it), but we’re never called to save the world and lose our family…
God doesn’t demand Big Things.
But the little things–some of beauty, others mundane– add up and become a Big way to bring Him glory.
We used a local Groupon deal to rent a boat and celebrate an early Father’s Day with the best man in town at a nearby lake. We loved every windy minute!
Have a beautiful Memorial Day!
