A Little Help From My Friends

The following words are a small part of a today's post by Rachel Anne @ Home Sanctuary. This is "one small thing" that she has done today to inspire me. It is part of the reason why I joined Company Girls. It is never too late to join...I personally don't keep up w/ the points or enter them in every month, but ya know- it's nice to know that there is someone out there that you can share the day to day tasks with. Even the mundane can come alive in a creative new way, when you share it with a friend! And we can all use a little help from our friends now and again, even if it's just encouragement to say hang in there, keep going- I'm with you(supporting you!) I hope her words will inspire you as well! Blessings!

You see, the minute we offer up just a tiny bit of effort, He springs into action to bless it. Because it's not just our action He's looking at.

It's the heart that goes with it.

When we serve in small ways, when we give of ourselves, and when we choose to love in ways that require a little bit of sacrifice, we are really worshipping God. With all of our hearts and our beings. We are living in the true spirit of an incredible God who is blessing what we put our hands to.

You've been given people and things in life that are to be treasured and cared for. You may never really do it perfectly or with the style and panache you'd like, but no one can do it like you can. You're someone's mommy, someone's daughter, someone's wife, someone's friend . Each Small Thing is a way of expressing love and gratitude for the wonderful gift of being part of someone's life.

It's worship and service and love and even fun, sometimes.

It's God working in small ways to make something great happen for you. Because that's just the way He does things.

One thing we learned at church awhile back is that worship comes in all shapes and forms.
When I take care of my family the way God desires--that is worship.
When I clean the bathrooms with a sweet spirit--that is worship.
When my life glorifies Him--it is worship.
Then the joy of the Lord--becomes my strength.
This is something that God is slowly writing on my heart.
Great reminder.

I, too, enjoyed reading this post. I started a small thing yesterday and am glad about it!

I am so thankful He meets me right where I am. SO glad He excepts my acts of worship, even when they seem so small!
Great post!
And thank you for your sweet encouragement. :) I really do probably need to find some good crockpot recipes to lighten the load a little!
