Big Things

Do you ever desire to do big things for God? Do you ever wish there was some way to really show Him how much you love him?

Sometimes I think the "big things" God asks me to do seem more like "little things."

Sometimes, I need to be reminded what the "big things" are.

On a recent Family Life radio broadcast, speaker Ann Wilson reminded me. She posed the following thought:

"What if God was saying... 'I want you to take all you have for me. And I want you to take that and give it to your husband. And I want him to know how much I love him, by the way you treat him.'"

Sometimes I want to do "big things" that the world will notice and I forget about the "big things" God has called me to. Things like loving my husband the way God loves me.

One thing I have learned over ten years of marriage is that loving my husband takes time and intentionality. Some days this comes easily. And some days it does not.

Regardless, it is my primary calling and when I love my husband I am doing a big thing for God.

Thank you, Megan. That is truth and very convicting.

Thanks for this encouragement! It comes at a good time for me - with a distinct lack of writing and speaking assignments lately (and a lot of flubs with other "assignments"), I've been feeling like I haven't been doing much for the Lord. Your thoughts give me a lot to think about - maybe He wants me focusing on other "big" things!
