Small Beginnings

"Do not despise these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel's hand." (The seven lamps represents the eye of the LORD that search all around the world. - Zechariah 4:10 (NLT)

Today's Encouragement:

Sometimes it's changing the small habits in our lives that makes the biggest difference! Don't underestimate the mundane disciples that you cultivate in the day to day. God starts small and moves us slowly into greater glory. He rejoices to see the work begin. no matter how tiny our step towards Him may feel. 



Father, thank You for the opportunity to have a new start. Too many times, I have strayed from my relationship with You. In times of distress and worry, I chose to try and handle things on my own. Moments of frustration, anger, and sadness have flooded my body. In those conflicting times, I chose to stay away from You. I neglected to seek Your help. Father, forgive me. You are the way, the truth, and the light. I ask You once again to guide me on the path to a new start in life. Please cover me with Your love, protection, and mercy. Please allow me to show Your love to others as I begin a new day. Thank You, Father, for Your love and forgiveness. Thank You for searching and finding me again. (Deuteronomy 31:8) Thank You for never leaving me alone. In Your Name, Amen.
