Sometimes life seems so tedious. Where did that pile of laundry come from? Didn’t I just do the dishes? Thirty new messages in my inbox – How?
There are so many unglamorous parts of life. Whether you’re a parent wiping up spilled milk for the fifth time this morning, a college student working on ten pages of chemistry equations, or an entrepreneur searching for your next sale so you can keep your doors open, you might begin to wonder what the point of your day to day life is.
Chances are, none of these things were what you imagined doing for God. You’re not on a mission trip to a foreign land. You’re not leading a local revival. You’re not the author of a USA Today best-selling devotional. You’re no Billy Graham preaching to millions. So what are you doing?
What God called you to do in this moment in time.
“He has shown you, oh man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To seek justice, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8
Life isn’t a Hollywood movie and it isn’t a race that you lose if you don’t have 10,000 followers on social media or aren’t standing on a stage leading thousands in worship each weekend.
God is with you right here, right now – whether you’re wrangling a screaming toddler or placating an angry customer.
He wants to be with you in the little things – volunteer in the church nursery, hold the door open for the elderly man or woman walking through, hug the hurting friend next to you. Nothing is too small for Him. His delight is in a moment-by-moment relationship with you, no matter what the circumstances.
So, today, let’s remember that He is with us, that He cares, and that nothing we do is meaningless.
