THANKFUL In The ‘Little Things‘
I am always humbled by the simple and little things. Too many times we are enamored with the big gift and the expensive presents. The older I get, the more aware of how small things can make significant change in the world. Tiny things added together can be multiplied to help thousands…maybe millions.
Zechariah 4:10 tell us to ‘not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin.’ Anything big started out as small.
Forgive us Lord, for missing the beauty and value in the simple and small things. When you walk the streets of Haiti, every once in a while you stumble upon the most amazing toys. This toy is real, it is not just a picture. It brought serious joy to a small lad. It provided dignity and worth. He found all the working pieces in the trash and ‘he’ made it. He plays with it. His parents are simply thankful for the small things that make their son happy and proud for his creations.
“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18.
“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
Make A Ripple
I am so thankful for the most amazing Churches and Partners that choose to walk with Breathe Partners. We are a small movement, but making a ripple in a world far bigger than we realize. It is the small things in life that matter the most. It is the overlooked or unrecognized ‘leak’ that can empty the largest reservoir.
Today, I want to be thankful for the ‘small gifts,’ the ‘small churches,’ the ‘small missions and movements of God,’ and the small children!
Let’s never underestimate the power of a simple smile, a kind gesture, or small contribution. When we ‘thank God’ we are praying. Prayer can sound so ‘trite.’ It is not. We are thankful for your prayers. We need them. Only God can move mountains, but faith and prayer, move God!
Thank you for investing in ‘small things and works of God.’ You have so many good options to choose from with whom you will form missional partnership. Breathe Partners wants to thank you for choosing to do life, ministry and mission with us.
We are grateful! THANK YOU!
