We all have strengths and weaknesses. God uses both. He comes out of us in both our strengths and our weaknesses. We all fall and make mistakes. Those do not define us. Only God defines us. Only God can make something out of nothing.
All we can do is give our something — even when it is essentially nothing — and God will use it to transform, impact, and change others. The outcome isn’t ours to control. All we can do is give. It is in our giving with willing, brave hearts, that God blesses, uses, and transforms others.
In a million little ways, as Emily P. Freeman points out, God is producing miracle after miracle. Do we see it? Do we recognize his work every day? We live in a broken world, but God is here. He is the hovering spirit of hope. He gives us the hand to hold onto. He has the power to pull us from the muck and set our feet on solid rock.
But we must trust. Even a small mustard seed of trust. That is all he needs to move mountains. Will I give that small mustard seed of trust and let time and circumstances fall as they may? Even when I don’t see him, will I trust He is there moving still? Lord, with the smallest mustard seed of faith, I give it to you. Let my little, almost nothing, be your transforming power. Let it be a difference to someone.
