Embracing The Gospel of Small

God is certainly in no hurry. He is not bothered by process. It seems to me that he has worked a certain amount of process into life. And unless your quiet, quiet enough to listen, you might become distracted by the loudness of life and miss the whisper of God.

Sometimes we become disheartened because life feels so normal. Sometimes we wonder why our life doesn’t seem to compare to the biblical text. Sometimes we wonder if anything great could come from our lives at all. But if Nazareth could be a home to the savior of the world, and mustard seeds really do become the largest plants in the garden, then there must be a real possibility that God is at work, right beneath the surface, where no one is looking, in ways that no one is expecting.

Don’t lose heart.
