Sometimes I feel insignificant, so small and lacking. I want to provide shelter for all the ones I care about but my resources don’t go far enough.
Sometimes I feel hidden, like I blend in and am lost in everyone else’s amazingness.
And sometimes I feel vulnerable, like I and my little house are hanging by a thin little wire.
But thankfully I come back to feeling grateful. If I look around I realize I am in a place of beauty. My home and family are where they need to be, in the Father’s hand. I look out instead of in, and my perspective changes when I see how many things there are to be thankful for.
It’s not even about counting and collecting blessings, but about looking up to see the Father’s smile, as He looks right at me. Then how I feel is suddenly changed by what I know; that I am loved.
How are you feeling today and have you seen Him smile at you lately?
