Each day is a day of small beginnings. If the Father’s mercies are new each morning (Lamentations 3:22-233), then each morning is a small beginning that takes us gently farther and farther away from who we were before the first small beginning, before the first, “I believe. Help my unbelief” (Mark 9:24) to who God designed us to be in the quiet place before we were born.
A day of small beginnings.
I will rise and write on a project he gave me – even if he gives me one sentence a day, and, as he gives me that one sentence a day, I will find peace and fulfillment in that one sentence, not berating myself that I am not doing enough, am not behind, am not insufficient into what he has called me. I will write that one sentence, rejoicing, trusting that he will being me another one, until the project he has given me is finished.
I will pick up the white socks dropped throughout the house.
I will make loaded potato soup for someone who asked because it’s his favorite.
I will begin to pray for God’s design, plan and purpose in lives where before I prayed for selfish results that would make my life sweeter, better, maybe easier.
I will not eat bread and will have a cup of afternoon tea to soothe out the knots of the day.
Today, I will walk with God, with Sadie on a leash, talking with the one who sustains me, loves me, knows how I am struggling now with organizing my moments in a daily so they form a cohesive pattern – and when that pattern unravels, I will rejoice, probably after I fuss and wallow only to then remember that God is unwinding the world tangled about me so who he created me to be can further emerge.
It is a day, like every day, full of small beginnings.
What are your small beginnings today?
