Every.Single.Day God is showing us how small we are and how BIG he is.

There is one instance in my life I can vividly remember where I just sat there thinking Oh my word, God does not joke around. I think it was that day and many other occasions since that I really grasped how HUGE our God really is and how much he loves us. There is just no way of measuring up to him. His goodness. His grace. Just no way.

As I stood there that day looking over the Grand Canyon, I felt so very small. It was almost overwhelming. I knew that it wouldn't be the last time he'd show me the abundance and depths of how truly great he is. But I felt like that day, that's when I really got it. Truly got it.

I was with a group of people but standing there, I felt like we were the only two people on earth. I felt like that moment in time, that view, it was just for me.

I will never forget that day.

I never want to forget how HUGE he is and how SMALL I am.

Life is not always easy. Sometimes just flat out hard. In the middle of our mess it's easy for us (me) to forget how blessed we are and that no matter the circumstance we still serve a big God.

Has he been showing you this lately, too?? In what ways??

God is so big, compared to everything around me. It's hard to wrap my brain around that sometimes. I tend to forget that I serve a BIG God. I know that He holds all things in His hands.

BTW, beautiful picture of you!

Life gets crazy sometimes and I very ofteb miss all the things God is showing me. I live on the coast and God has used His beautiful sunsets to pull me back into reality when I am more preoccupied with my life instead of HIS life FOR me! I hope to one day see the greatness of His creation in the Grand Canyon! So jealous you were there!
