When Insignificant is Significant

Do you ever feel insignificant? Like teeny-tiny, blip on the planet, in the ginormous galaxy, in the incomprehensible universe kind of insignificant? Yeah like that.

I do. Sometimes I do. Sometimes my heart cries out to God because of my weakness. Because of my itty-bittyness and because of His Great Bigness!!! Sometimes I feel like I don't even know at all why He would chose to see me, little lone use me. And yet....

And yet, He more than sees me. He knows me. Me. The teeny-tiny blip on this big ole planet, in the ginormous galaxy, in the incomprehensibly huge universe, yep me He knows. It is truly AMAZING!!! He has been showing me so much of His Greatness lately. He has been teaching me more than I could ever explain on this teeny-tiny blog. But trust me on this ~~ He is the I AM!!! Huge and Glorious, Personal and Intimate. I knew this about God, but now I know it. Ya know?!!

Just before the New Year I read on another blog about reading the Bible in 90 days. I didn't even know that you could do that!! Yes I am a goober!!! And yes, Philippians 4:13 totally applies: "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength." I remember reading about this on a blog and going to bed that night and asking my husband, "Honey did you know that you can read the Bible in 90 days?" Husband: "Yeah, I knew that." So why didn't anyone tell me? Well, silly because it just wasn't time yet.

I went to bed that night knowing that this was what I was suppose to do, and not as a New Year's Resolution. Nope that's to much pressure for this teeny-tiny blip, so I didn't put that kind of pressure on myself I just started. So on December 28th I started on this journey, and it is truly one of the most beautiful things I've ever committed to.

I am learning so much, and out of very familiar stories I am seeing things in a new light. Things are jumping off of the page and right into my heart. It is a beautiful thing. Beautiful.

So even though today I have felt very insignificant, God has shown me significance in the simple, in the quiet, in the peace, in the broken. He is truly AMAZING!!!

Thank You for being God of all!!! You are the most precious thing to me, and I love You Father, and I serve You with my whole life!! Thank You for giving me desires that I didn't even know that I could desire. You are my All-in-All and I love You ~~ In Jesus Name, Amen

Blessings and Love,


  1. So sweet to hear your testimony about reading the Bible. I love that! I read through the Bible one school year a few years (maybe almost 8 years now that I think about it) and it was an amazing experience. I had to during that time decide for real if I thought the Word was true. I mean really true. I am so thankful the Lord saw me through that time and showed me how real He is! Blessings to you my friend, Hope

  2. wow, that'll be fun. it solves the..mmm... where should i start today, as I always do!!!!! be blessed.

  3. I love how you can re-read these scriptures & stories & God reveals newness in them every time... just proof how SIGNIFICANT you are... that He would have the heart to show you what you need, WHEN you need it... :)

  4. Being one of 11... I have certainly struggled with the feeling of insignificance. And to be honest, I continue to struggle with it in general. I KNOW God loves me... and sees me... personally... and cares about all the details of my life... it's still a difficult concept for me to grasp. But, I hold on to it, by faith. Thanks for the reminder.

  5. Wow, here I was feeling proud of myself for trying to read the whole Bible this year! Haha. :)

  6. I was going to do the same reading in 90 as you are. It sounded just like the structure that I need. Alas, I could not afford the book. I am struggling along in my own way.
    But it is nice to know it is doable.
