Be Little

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and I love it when I feel so tiny and small against something big and grandeur. Like the ocean. When I saw it for the first time; that massive expanse of water, it made me feel so small. It was the same feeling I had as a small girl, looking up at the giant redwood trees. And I felt small the first time I saw the northern lights or the Rocky Mountains or the Grand Canyon.

Giant things have a way of putting you in your place. Isaiah 40 says, “Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the extent of his palm marked off the heavens?” The answer is God! Friend, if God measures the universe between his thumb and little finger, then of course He’s big enough to carry all your problems. As someone said, “don’t tell God about your big problems. Tell your problems about your big God.”
