Three Little Stories
I was feeling down as I do occasionally, and three things happened. I got a letter from a friend who told me about a video she had seen which showed God's glory in an amazing way. I believe God heals just as he did in the Bible days. I have missionary reports that prove this. So the thought of God's wonderful presence to heal and to wash over hungry hearts just reminded me of what I so ardently adhere to.
I also was reading a devotional and one line stood out helping me to just trust God to fix a tricky situation. I took it to heart believing that He could do what He said he would do. Once my faith gets a hold of that kite tail, I just soar in the heavenlies where I belong.
A few days later, I read a very good book which was off my beaten path, genre-wise. When I finished it, I realized that it is possible to spread God's word in a way that reaches hearts without seeming preachy.
These three little stories help me realize that my life and your life are not insignificant. If you are feeling that your little weight for God's Kingdom doesn't count for much, think again. All these three people did was use their gifts for God and share them. Hey, I can do that. You can do that. One little word of encouragement that there is a God who loves them and can help them and they can help too, is all it takes to lift another person heaven-ward. Soon, the whole sky will be full of kites with happy people holding to the tails and singing praise to our great God.
