One day, about 8 years ago, I threw trash out my car window. Immediately, I heard God speaking to my heart with a simple question; if everyone did what you did, what would the world be like? To be honest, it really caught me off guard. Often times, that’s an indicator for me personally of how I truly know it’s Him. I mindlessly do or say something and boom! My actions or thoughts seem to be interrupted by His still, small voice. It comes in such a way where you know without a shadow of a doubt, the thought is not of your own mind. Nevertheless, I was convicted right away, but I knew this wasn’t just about me littering. The depths of the question really penetrated my heart, just as He intended for it to. Over the next few weeks, I began to do some self-evaluating. I wondered: if everyone handled situations how I do, treated each other like I do or simply lived the same lifestyle as I lived, what condition would the world be left in? Man, is that an eye-opening question or what? I am so grateful He spoke that to my heart. It always helps put things back into perspective.
The daily decisions we make may seem so small and insignificant, but there is a much bigger picture on a grander scale that we humans are not even capable of comprehending. Only our omniscient, omnipotent, perfect God can see how each little piece fits into a beautiful masterpiece design. Trust Him and do your best to follow Him – even when it’s difficult and even when others may not understand or approve of your decisions.
Until next time, my sweet friends : )
