You don't necessarily need massive action to achieve significant change in your life.  In fact, the actual thought of such monumental action can sometimes cause a person to give up trying altogether before they even start.  

 

Take, for instance, a person who is trying to lose fifty pounds. When considering the significant amount of change it will take to reach such an audacious goal can cause a person to decide never to start feeling they are attempting the impossible.  Or, what about a person who is attempting to read the Bible through in a year, but scoffs at how lengthy and sometimes difficult it is to read in big chunks. Additionally, there is a person who needs a new means of transportation, but realizes that financially they could never afford it.  

Unfortunately, what is often unrealized, is the difference that can be made through small daily investments that over time lead to big results.  You see, the world often looks to what is BIG and MASSIVE, but God instead chooses to work through the weak and small.  Consider 1 Cor. 1: 27-28- "God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the strong.  God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing the things that are.

Or, when in response to the apostles plea of "Increase our Faith!" Christ replied, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, be uprooted and planted in the sea, and it will obey you."

Or, when to the disciples surprise at Bethsaida, Jesus took the small offering of five loaves of bread and two fish and feed over five thousand people.  You see, God is able to take our small, seemingly insignificant, and perhaps even tiny gifts and make them into something extraordinary.

So, you want to lose weight this new year?  Just watch your diet and exercise regularly, and over time, with consistency and accountability, small changes can lead to big results.  Paying off debt this new year?  No problem!  Just take it one step at a time.  With a simple budget, some willpower, accountability, and perhaps an opportunity to earn extra income, you can get that snowball going downhill in no time. How about reading the Bible through this year?  It is a truly big book, especially in chunks.  But, do you ave fifteen minutes a day.  With a consistent plan, you can reach this goal as well. 

A wise man once told me, "You can swallow the elephant as long as you do it one bite at a time."  He also said, "Swallow the biggest part first." So, what is you challenge?  What goal do you want to realize?  What dream could you fulfill?  Remember, you can do it one small step at a time.  Also, always lean upon Luke 1:37 that says, "For nothing is impossible with God."  Happy New Year!

    Did you hear the groundhog did not see his shadow? I used to think this was a real test, then I found out they actually talk to the groundhog.
