Just a Drop...


They are little,

tiny;

it seems like they are insignificant.

Individually, perhaps they are.

Perhaps not.

Droplets.



Bits of H2O.

Alone, they are just that:
alone.

But gather them together.
No longer droplets or insignificance.

They can cloud the view,

make a puddle,

or a stream,

or a river,

washing unimpeded,
crashing and snatching anything in the path.

 
Little turned big:

like droplets of ill.

Little thoughts, doubts, bitterness, anger,
misunderstandings.

Left alone they are small,

forgotten;

but if allowed to gather,
the damage...


LOOK OUT!!!



But what else?

Little drops of hope,

love,

faith,

forgiveness,

Itty-bitty, tiny, seemingly insignificant:

what if they grow,

join?


Oh, blessedness!
Oh, peace!
Oh, joy!

What we allow to join together in our minds,
our tongues,
our hearts,
will be the force that drives us where it will,
the force that breaks us up
or mends us up.

Look up.
Grab it.

Fill up the good stuff.

Flush the bad.

Give it to God
and watch him fill the droplets up:
good measured,
pressed down,
and running over.
 

Choose wisely,
 my friend.

  3. I really liked this - different from all the other 5mf posts I've visited so far. And the pictures are phenomenal. I think this in particular touched me because we are dealing with unheard of and catastrophic flooding in our part of Africa right now... the drops of water joining together... incredible potential for good... terrifying possibility of destruction.

    Thank you for this today!

  13. That's a beautiful post and a lovely way to put it. You're so right, all those little feelings of anger, bitterness etc., can add up to something big that will make us miserable and damage our happiness and peace. We can give it to God and let Him replace it with joy, peace, love.....

    I also love your pictures. Especially the one where you have a mini flood happening! That's a great shot and the last one with your kids is adorable. Thanks so much for linking up to Making Your Home Sing Monday.
