Feeling small can have big benefits!

Big TreeThe truth is, feeling small may not be so bad after all, if in recognizing our smallness, we come to realize the wonder of God—a God who is beyond our ability to fully describe or imagine, yet Someone we are privileged to know, love, and embrace. Looking up from our fragile little lives, we are faced with the supremacy of a God who is fully capable of not only running the entire cosmos today—a task that doesn’t tax Him in the slightest—but of sustaining the affairs of our lives as well. 

~ Excerpted from I Am Not But I Know I Am by Louie Giglio

Maybe the reason that feeling small is sometimes difficult is because we are comparing ourselves to others. In reality, from God’s point of view we are all small and yet so valuable that He sent His only Son to die for us.
