Have you ever stopped and thought about how small we really are. I can get so caught up in all that is going on in 'my life' right now. But then I stop and think that in my little town of 900ish people, there are 900 lives with as many schedules and issues and things happening as me. Then I think of Russellville where there are 30,000ish people again with busy lives and problems and so much going on. Then I think about how Russellville is one small town in this country, one country in this huge world. So I get pretty overwhelmed when I realize I am one of roughly 6,800,000,000 people in this world that have worries and joys and their lives going on all around them. It is at this point that I am again amazed that God would care about every detail of my life. That my thoughts matter to Him. My mind cannot conceive how He can keep up with all these lives. I simply leave it as He is God, I am not. Thankfully, I am His.

  1. My best moment like that was when I was flying into Dallas one day. The city is so huge, you just look down and see subdivision after subdivision, and suburbs, and businesses for miles and miles. It's like it never ends. So I just tried to imagine the millions of people that lived there and it's pretty overwhelming.

    Sometimes I go the opposite way and think how small and insignificant I am and I let myself be discouraged. The best answer I've heard to this is we shouldn't think about how small we are but how big our God is.
