Luke 16:10

Max, checking out kayakers on our latest hike
“He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much.”
Luke 16:10 (NASB)

Do you ever feel like you’re on the brink of something? Like, you can sense that Lord is about to open a door for you and your new chapter is about to begin? I’m right there and I’ve been praying like crazy about it.

Yesterday,  I was talking to God about this, and I asked Him what He wants me to do in anticipation. “How can I prepare, Lord? What do I do? “Almost immediately, Luke 16:10 came to mind. It was very clear – “be faithful in the small things.”

Why would the Lord open a new and exciting door for me with big responsibilities and tasks if I’m not patient with my teething baby? Or quick to wrath with the driver in front of me? Or not kind and respectful to my husband, my partner in life?

If we want to be used in mighty ways for God’s Kingdom, we must remember to be faithful in the little things. That’s how we let the Lord shine. Because really, He’s the one doing all the work anyway. We just get to be a part of it.



FAITH: When I Chose Modesty

When I was in my teens and early 20s, I was extremely immodest. While I was getting ready to go out, my goal was to look as hot as possible and collect as much attention as possible. 

I thought that if I could be the hottest woman in the room, I would be able to capture attention and it would be mine for as long as I wanted. It didn't occur to me that the kind of attention I was seeking is a fleeting kind. In other words, it didn't matter if I was the most beautiful woman that guy had ever seen. The kind of guy who appreciated my immodesty had zero standards whatsoever. He'd hang on my every word until someone else's skin flashed by. He'd flirt with me and then turn around and flirt with every other girl as well. This guy didn't care about whose makeup was better, who was witty, who had better legs, who was nicest, etc. The kind of guy who is attracted to immodesty is only interested in one thing and that's not your heart. This dude has no other standards an…

FAITH: Are You Willing to Give God Anything He Wants?

Push Up popsicles are interesting.  In order to eat more ice cream, you need to literally push up the stick that's connected to the platform in which the ice cream sits.

My toddlers both lack the strength and dexterity to push up their Push Ups, so I have to make myself available to help them out.  One of my boys understands this.  As his ice cream dips below the cardboard container, he'll eagerly hand his treat over so I can push the stick upwards and he can continue eating.  My other boy doesn't yet understand why he needs my help.  He'd rather chew at the cardboard than willingly hand over his treat for two seconds.  Whenever it's time to push up his ice cream, he grips it tight and puts up a fight against me even though my motive is completely for his benefit.  I never take the ice cream for myself, I only obtain the Push Up in order to make it possible for my boys to have more ice cream.  So they don't have to resort to gnawing on soggy cardboard.

This remin…
