I was reminded this weekend of how small my world is. Its not a pleasant reminder – in fact, it’s rather embarrassing. I get so focused on my needs and my little “to do” list that I lose track of the bigger picture – why am I here and what’s it all about. I miss the forest for the trees.
As I saw people streaming into the church on Saturday for tours, I felt quite small in the face of something huge that was drawing them. I was reminded that I’m not here to do my own thing, to get what I can out of life. I made a promise to God that I would do what He wanted. It’s an everyday choice and I fail all the time-but it helps to pick my head up and see the forest again.
