Let me explain where these rocks came from. When three and four year old children play on the playground, they love to collect rocks. I was vaguely aware of a small hand reaching into my pocket but I was preoccupied at the time. I needed to be vigilant as I watched the children at play. A short time later I felt a jiggle in my pocket and discovered the rocks. I glanced up to see who was the culprit. There was no hiding as Sid had a huge smile on his face. "Miss Debbie, I gave you my rocks."
Choosing to Trust and Obey
Inside I felt this was so symbolic to me. Yes, I may only have little rocks to offer. But even in little things I choose to be obedient to the Lord. Some days that involves comforting a child who fell and hurt their cheek. Other days it's writing a chapter in my book. And on some days it involves sitting with a friend who is hurting and simply needs a good listener.
Would I like to do big things for God? You betcha! But it's really not about me. I am simply a vessel to be used for His purposes. And if doing the little things is what He is asking of me right now, that's what I want to do. I am choosing to trust Him and His ways and His timing.
I'm linking up with Bonnie for this Faith Barista Jam.
Blessings and love,
