Have you ever truly noticed how kids are so enthralled with something that seems like absolutely nothing? I love to see how amazed my son is by everyday things I forget to notice. His eyes absolutely light up as if to say, “WOW, did you see that one blade of grass Mom?! It moved a little! It’s so pretty and green!” I imagine that’s what he would say when he takes his little finger and points at the one blade of grass, pulls it out and examines it, then brings it to me. It’s hilarious, but so innocent and sweet.
Isn’t that the way God works anyway? Or so I think. He picks out that one thing in you that you didn’t know you had and makes it amazing. He turns nothing into something. Pay attention to your little “nothings”. God has a big something planned for you. Quit pushing all of those little nothings to the side. Pay attention. Listen. Act. God knows you. He knows you better than you know yourself and is ready to use you.
Are you ready to let God use you? So what if you’re scared. If everyone that was scared never did anything then we would still be sitting in the dark, hunting for food, and having children without the option of an epidural. Is that the world you want to live in? I don’t. I liked my epidural. I like going to the grocery store and choosing what meat I want. (Truth be told though, I’d love to have a little garden-I’ll work on making that a reality). My point is, let God use you. Whatever season of life you are in, you can be used by God. It won’t look the same as your girlfriend’s, neighbor’s or husband’s gifting. So don’t get into a jealous tizzy. Find YOUR thing and be the best at it. Even if it is more than one thing.
I mean, I’m typing into my computer and doing who knows what. Honestly though, I felt that I needed to start this years ago and just never did. This kind of thing seemed way too saturated with other people and what did I have to offer anyway? I still don’t know the answer to that. I still don’t know exactly what I’m doing. I feel like I need to do this though. Even if there is only one person reading this. One momma reading this at home feeling overwhelmed with the mundane day-to-day of keeping up with kids and a home. I am cheering for you. I am praying for you. I am here for you.
You have a purpose.
