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 : )

The bible is rich in powerful wisdom, beautiful analogies and inspiring stories that help us to better understand God’s character and successfully grow in the midst of life’s ups and downs. There are so many scriptures that tie into what I shared today, but I will leave you with this one for now.
 “In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths” – Proverbs 3:6
I encourage you to mediate on them throughout your week. Study the context. In addition, pray for God to show you exactly how you can apply them to your life now. Nothing is too small for Him to use; you just never know what He’s up to! And as always, I am on this journey with you so let’s do this!
