Hello my name is Katie Bu….oh wait is that a butterfly???
This is my typical, terribly distracted, self. Yesterday I found my phone on the top shelf of our kids closet (where I was organizing). And I have so many tabs open on my browser I can hardly read the titles.
I just got a text, where was I?? Oh yes…
I feel God has been teaching me something lately. This beautifully simple and ridiculously profound word….FOCUS.
I am the girl who read kisses from katie and was convinced I wanted to move to Africa and adopt 14 kids. Bessie inspires me to adopt, Chrissy inspires me to move, and the Kebrdle’s inspire me to sell everything I have.
And in the midst of my “holy whining” (can we say oxymoron) about how I wish I was doing more, God brought me to a very good point.
“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.
We have two young girls. Am I sensitive to how God wants me to parent them? I have a wonderful husband, have I told him lately how much I appreciate him? I lead a college girls small group, have I invested enough into these amazing young women to illustrate God’s love for them?
Instead of whining about all I’m NOT doing, I am CHOOSING to FOCUS on all that God is doing through me.
And instead of thinking I would be better if was doing more, I have decided to CHOOSE to FOCUS and invest to let God be GREAT at what I am already doing.
I must be faithful first in the small things.
Who knows what the future holds, but today, my ministry is where my feet are.
