Small Things

"Wherever you are, be all there!
Live to the hilt every situation you believe to be the will of God."
-Jim Elliot

I have been listening to some messages by Paul Washer this week, and the Lord has been showing me that although my circumstances would not be considered ideal from a human perspective, His will--to conform me to the image of His Son--is being accomplished.
Trials are what God uses to sanctify us.  As I learn this, I am encouraged to live each day to the hilt, to not only tolerate, but embrace sanctification, and to appreciate the small things.
