for those days when you feel small….

Image02272013085224

It’s a quiet moment, in an otherwise full day, here in my little life.

I find quiet moments mostly sweet and yummy,
full of delicious nanoseconds of bliss.
No loud bodily noises, no rude remarks, no needs being unmet.
Often, in these moments, time slows and I savor.

Sometimes though, these little moments
can be dangerous and damaging…

my thoughts run wild
and my mind looses itself in the
Comparison Game.

I read blogs,
and books.

I see status updates
and tweets.

I find myself feeling
small
insignificant
unworthy.

In the mess of feeling small,
He brings me this…

The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.
On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God,  
and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5

and I remember.

take captive every thought

In myself
I am small, insignificant, unworthy.

In Him
I am His
fighting with His armor.

The quiet moment
becomes delicious
when I surrender the thought
and choose Truth instead.

  1. Perfect! I came upon this post after discovering I had messed up with one of my contacts in my new role as an online missionary. Well, that exalted title is way beyond me, but that is what they call us. Anyway, I made a mistake that may lead to confusion for one of my contacts, and I was starting to say to myself, “Maybe you made an even bigger mistake by thinking you belong in this work.” I was feeling distressed and unsettled. I started clicking around in my mailbox, which is something I do to be doing something when I am doing nothing. That is pretty stupid, I know, and a habit I should break.
    Anyway, I saw your post, and I read it, and I realized that Satan would just love for another Christian to drop out. Give up. Hang up her weapons and go home. Thank you for reminding me that sharing Christ is so important that it is better to do it clumsily than not to do it. Thank you.

I'd love to know what you think...
