|my very own little woodland fairy, i barely could capture her, she's always aflutter|
I'm still here! I promise. Just feeling kind of blah lately and craving guacamole, chocolate covered everything, and tomato juice by the gallon. Sometimes in that order, but hey, sorry to gross you out. I'm remembering all too well how the first trimester goes. My body is picky, it wants peace and quiet and long hours with a book and it doesn't get appeased until after 9:30 p.m.
But other than that stuff, I still have other stuff that I'm trying to sort out in my heart. Big things I always wanted to do for God and He keeps reminding my little brain that small things are sometimes the most important. Small things done in great faith. And even then, He's not so much worried about the doing than he is about my simply "being" with Him, in Him, a part of Him.
I should write this quote all over my house:
"Does it make sense to pray for guidance about the future if we are not obeying in the thing that lies before us today? How many momentous events in Scripture depended on one person's seemingly small act of obedience! Rest assured: Do what God tells you to do now, and, depend upon it, you will be shown what to do next." ~ Elisabeth ElliotMy prayer has become, "God, show me what you desire for me to do this day. However small, however big, give me the grace to do it."
