Sometimes I overcomplicate what it looks like to follow Jesus, but then as I lean in I hear, “Just give me this day.”
We don’t have to be starting nonprofits or launching a new business or publishing a book or recording a podcast or heading off on the next flight to a city in need. Those can all be good things. Very good things. But sometimes all we have to offer God isn’t big or glamorous. And somewhere along the way we have confused our smallness as meaningless.
This morning I was reminded that all The Lord asks of me is to live out another day for Him. To be patient and respectful towards E. To hold my spare change loosely. To hand over my water and banana to the woman who sits on our corner. To look at her and see a Sister, not a stranger. To put her and everyone else before myself. To have integrity when it would be easy to deceive. To respond to anger in love. To finish what I start. To give thanks all day long.
So, that’s my plan. Nothing earth-shattering, but every bit as significant as any major accomplishment. I’m giving Him this day. Who’s with me?! ❤️
