I am learning a lot at Relevant - about myself, about blogging and even about my faith. So, I'll be processing this for a while still - but while it is all fresh in my mind I want to at least get started in getting some of these things down and sharing them.
Overall since I left home, I think I would say I have felt very small. You know how when you leave your circle of life and venture out past that how you tend to shrink? Or, is that just me?
Small ~ out on the interstate in a sea of unknown cars going unknown places at a seemingly hurried pace. Small ~ stopping for lunch in an unknown place, leaving the familiar behind. Finding comfort that I have my own car with me because that is something from my regular life that feels normal and homey to me right now.
Small ~ meeting people who don't know me and whom I don't know. Small ~ wow, my blog stats are below hers or she has a much bigger following or more people know about her blog. Feeling small is not a bad thing. I'm not complaining, it is a phrase and feeling that has just been on repeat in my mind since I left home two days ago.
"...he will bless those who fear the Lord - small and great alike." ~ Psalm 115:13
Indeed, what matters is not how small I am or even how great. What matters is my fear of the Lord and doing what He has given me with faithfulness. And, it doesn't matter how I look in anyone's eyes but His.
