Small things matter to God

We all need to have a sense of why we are here. We all need to know we were created for a purpose. We will never find fulfilment and happiness until we are doing the thing for which we were created. But God won’t move us into the big things He has called us to unless we have been proven faithful in the small things He has given us to do.  When I look back and see all of the opportunities to learn and grow in my family life, as well as ministry in the hospitals and hospices I served, it was the small things that I needed to learn how to do and accomplish that has brought me to the place where I am now. There were days when I was impatient and wanted to get started and open the center for SCSM. God had other plans. God’s plans were perfect because He knew me better than I knew me.  I had to be proven faithful in the small things that He has given me to do as a wife, mother, and friend.  I had many responsibilities working in the community as well as my faith community.  I had a lot more learning to do before this could happen. It took sixteen years of waiting and learning and realizing that the small things do matter to God before I could be responsible with the “Vision of SCSM.”  Do you feel God has something that He wants you to do and you are beginning to feel impatient as you wait and as He prepares you?  Are you frustrated and feel that your husband or children stand in your way of doing what you think you should do for God? I would encourage you to trust the Lord.  He knows what is best for you. God’s perfect timing is everything.  There is a season for everything as mentioned in Ecclesiastes 3:1 “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.”
