“Little” Things

Posted: November 26, 2021 in Uncategorized

One night this week, I sat in one an online event called Story Share with Jessie Nilo from God Loves Art. One of the women shared the story of sending a card to someone who had just suffered a great loss. In the card, she included a small painting in with the card. The person who received it thanked her for that piece and told her how much in meant to her in her time of great need. She commented how the piece was small and not unlike all the big stuff some of us do. Respectfully, she may have been looking at it wrong. The piece may have been small in dimension but it’s meaning was huge. That’s the thing with what we do for God. It may look small, but in God’s hands little things take on bigger meaning.

Consider Jesus. He could have come as a conquering king. He could have come with power radiating from Him in all directions. He is the maker of the biggest things there are, but that’s not how He came. No He came as a baby. He came small, almost unnoticeably so, but His impact was huge, or consider the times He fed multitudes with a very small amount. It’s probably best for us not to even really consider the size of what we do for the Lord. Instead we should just follow the leading of the Spirit, make what we feel led to make, or do what we feel the Lord calling us to do and trust Him with the impact. What my new friend did may have been small in size, but it was done with great love and that makes all the difference.

Be faithful in the “little” things, and do then with great love. We serve a big God. He was capable of making a universe out of nothing. Imagine what He can do with you and your work.

Thanksgiving Message

Here is the sermonette I preached at our Thanksgiving Eve service. 


My friend Jessie Nilo from God Loves Art, has put together some really fantastic, thought provoking arts ministry videos. Are we pouring into our artists or are we just using them. Learn more about Jessie’s Ministry and or join her community by going to God Loves Art.

This one is more challenging and will be more challenging to implement but once again I think Jessie Nilo from God Loves Art has caught on to something very important here.


Today will be out last message in the Red Letters Series until after Advent, which begins next week. Today the disciples will see Jesus as He has always been, in His glorified heavenly form and we will contrast that with the Incarnation, when Jesus left His glorified form to become a man and dwell among us and all that these two events mean to us.


My friend Jessie Nilo from God Loves Art Made this video and it is really important. I love this, and I intend to implement it in my ministry in some way. How great would it be for the church to become the creative center of a community?


I started following Jazza’s (Josiah Brooks’) art channel. This guys does so many different creative at forms that are right up my alley. In this one, he made an animated short on a storyteller, which was a quite beautiful. Ah that we would all make the world a better place with the stories we tell. Tell a better story friends… Live a better story!

Serve Somebody

I was on the Rat Fink Facebook Page the other day and I happened upon a guy who was looking for an artist to “Finkify” his dog, to be used as a logo for his custom shop. I love drawing in that style so I said I would give it a shot. Sometimes it’s fun to do something just to bless somebody and this project was a blast.

Sometimes we all need to remember to be grateful for what we already have.
