Joining Lisa Jo and the Girls for 5 Minute Friday....no rewrite, no edits and love those that came before you...
Small. It describes quite perfectly how I am feeling. The very first post I ever read at (In)Courage was Don't Despise The Small. For some reason when I go to the website on my phone, it always opens up to that. May 14th. Small. This place makes me feel hidden, sometimes insignificant, wondering if anyone can even see me sometimes....small. But God says that He does great things in the secret, in the places that start off very small. It was a small cry in the dark that He must have heard, that prompted Him to lead me down this road. It was in the small that He has showed me how to seek Him alone and trust in Him for my needs. It has been in the small that I have been able to look at this brokenness and not feel completely overwhelmed...and I notice that He seems to speak to me lately about butterflies :) That cocoon the caterpillar weaves must get pretty small while it is growing until the small can no longer contain the beauty it once held so tightly and all the bigness of His glory causes it to burst out and fly on to bigger, better things....only it would not have had that chance, but for the protection of the small while growing. Thankful.
