Lots of little things become big things. They make an impact, they mean something, and they can even change lives for the better. Saying and doing positive "little" things for people is never overrated. We never know what others need in life and any good little thing can help. It can brighten our day and lift our spirits when we need it most.
That's how I felt after people took a few seconds out of their lives to type a few words of happiness, to dial 10 digits of joyfulness, and to drive a few miles of gladness. All to wish me well by saying loving words of kindness on a day I really needed it.
Sometimes even the encourager needs encouraging. And even though I have most assuredly mastered the ability to encourage myself like David did (1 Samuel 30:6b), there's no doubt I need external support. We all do. We need the things we can't give ourselves. All of us need certain things from certain people, because we are not everything. One of the reasons the Lord put us on the earth was to fellowship and encourage each other. So I have no problem saying that just as certain people need me, I also need them. I wouldn't be who I am if it were not for the people God has placed in my life. Those people are on social media, in other parts of the world, and in person. It doesn't matter where they are, people are people, and we need each other.
Could you begin to imagine life without people? Without friends and family? Sometimes we say we wish we could just whiz through traffic without anyone else on the road, but we really don't want that. It would be a lonely existence.
So, I wanted to take a moment via this blog post to say how thankful I am for you who are reading it and those who are reading it in the spirit. You may not know this, but you inspire me to be better. I appreciate your interest in who I am as a person. And I am thankful and grateful that God orchestrated it all for His glory and His honor.
Thank you so much.
