Last night, as I was walking out to the barn to milk my goats, I saw my shadow cast before me.
And I stopped.... And looked at it.
It was such a small shadow.
I looked up at the clear night sky, and saw the billions of stars that our Creator put up there.
I looked at my small shadow, and then the huge night sky.
And felt so small.
How can the Lord use something so small as me? I felt like a tiny bug standing beneath that sky.
And yet... I stood in awe as I thought about how God made me exactly how He wanted me. He put me in this exact place in the world, at this exact time, in this exact family, for a very specific purpose.
I still felt small beneath that sky, but I continued on my way feeling small for a purpose. I know not how the Lord will use me, but I pray that I won't be too small for the task....
