#thirstythursday / do not despise these small beginnings

thirsty thursday banner the daily Starr

I like to focus on BIG things.

I’m a big picture kind of girl. I love to dream. I don’t really do details all that well.

I’m guilty of asking God over and over for the BIG things – like writing a book, or speaking at events.

Sometimes He likes to remind me that small beginnings are necessary.


Yes, indeed.

I love this quote from my devotional today in Draw the Circle by Mark Batterson:

“If we do little things, God will do the big things. But we have to do the little things like they are big things.”

Then, Brian pointed out to me the next paragraph in our devotional and I love it just as much as the quote above:

“Oswald Chambers once wrote, “It is inbred in us that we have to do exceptional things for God; but we have not. We have to be exceptional in the ordinary things.” And if we do the ordinary, God will add an extra to it.”

I’m chatting with God tonight about helping me be exceptional in the ordinary. I want Him to trust me in the small things. I want to embrace the small beginnings. And God, take me wherever You lead!

  1. I have struggled with for several years. A new beginning for me, hit me square between the eyes.
    Thank you Starr.
