The moment that I decide to make a change in my life, the resistance shows up. My adversary wants to prevent me from doing good in my life. So he makes life just a little harder. Last night, I tossed and turned most of the night. Even when I fell asleep, I couldn’t stay asleep. So this morning, I wanted to sleep through my writing time.
After all, what is one day? But then I remembered the promise that I had made to myself. I decided that I would show up every day and write the words on my heart—regardless of my circumstances. I can’t just show up when I feel like it. Because I know from experience that I would rarely feel like it. I have to commit to showing up because it is important to me.
Some days the words flow onto the screen, and other days I feel as if I have to fight for each word. But, I still show up and do it. God blesses our efforts. He can take our small efforts and bless them abundantly.
Therefore, I want to do the small things that He gives me to do each day with great love. So often we think that it’s the big things we do in life that makes the biggest difference, but I think it’s the small things. It’s the little decisions that we make each day that creates our life. If we can master the little things, then we can become the person that God created for us to be.
