I’m really excited about all of the things God is teaching me. I’ve been eagerly working on Joshua’s House a lot this week. As I’ve been working, I realize that so much more is possible than I ever thought.
You see, I have this problem. I get this big, huge, massive idea in my mind and then I go for it. Sometimes these are high ideals to live up to, sometimes they are programs I want to start, or projects I get myself into. The problem is that I push myself so hard and am not content with anything less than the finished product.
For example. I am excited about producing a Christian website for kids with all sorts of usability worked out, an awesome design, lots of features, the whole nine yards. I have all of these great resources I’ve been sitting on, waiting for a large sum of money, or a kind volunteer who would be willing to make the website a reality. Why? Why am I just sitting there? I can make a website now. It may not be ideal, but I must be faithful in the little things, right? Does this mean my dream should die? No! But it means I should be more willing to take tiny steps to get there rather than taking one giant leap.
I often do this in my Spiritual life as well. I expect to be transformed all at once, and I forget that it’s the work of a lifetime. Just like the story of the servants who were give talents when the master left, I want to be faithful with what I have now – big or small.
