Big Impact!

August 14, 2012

I’m savouring the last of our summer evenings here in our little corner of the world; I love the August air and the light streaming into our living room as the children begin their descent upstairs; P.J’s, stories and snuggles after a full afternoon of activity at home.

As I was at my sink tonight cleaning up the remains of dinner and a days work of creative concoctions in my little kitchen, a large shadow took me by surprise above my head, I ducked expecting to see a large moth swooping above my head only to find a tiny fluttering insect with a magnetic pull towards my kitchen light bulb!

I laughed at my reaction and was reminded by the Holy Spirit how small things can make a huge impacted when they are near the light.

“But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.”

1 John 1:7

As we walk close to Jesus and do not grow weary; the every day simple things of life that we do so diligently will have a big impact for His kingdom, His purpose’s and the legacy we leave.

What have you done today that went unnoticed? What is it you do everyday to make someone elses life easier but no one ever realises? Think of the smallest task, act or action you have performed today; when we do it for His glory, when we walk close to Jesus the impact will always be bigger than we expect.

The young shepherd boy David slayed a giant with one small pebble; just think what impact that cuddle with your husband would have (despite your unfinished ‘to do’ list), that home cooked meal for your family, that hot chocolate with your daughter, that 10 minutes of uninterrupted Lego play with your son can have when it is done with Jesus and not out of duty or frustration!

The biggest lesson we mothers need to learn is that we can’t do it in our own strength; we must keep our eyes on Jesus as we walk out our noble and honoured calling.

Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. Prov 16:3

Small things have big impact when we walk close to Jesus – nothing you do is insignificant; you are precious and loved today!
