A significant life is simpler than you think. In a culture where bigger is seen as better, it's easy to wonder if your quick prayer between errands or the short note you text a friend means anything in God's kingdom. Today's guest, Rachael Adams, reminds us that every little thing we do can go a long way in God's hands. Rachael has just released her devotional book, A Little Goes a Long Way: 52 Days to a Significant Life, where she shares personal and biblical stories of how God took something small and made it something significant. She Says, "The reality is everybody [God] used was ordinary and He used mundane moments for everybody. And I think we sometimes read scripture in these big highlight moments and forget the daily, ordinary, mundane ways that they lived, too, and I realized a significant life is simpler than we think."
Rachael also shares how little invitations that were given to her caused her to grow in her relationship with God. And I share a personal story of how one devotion in particular spoke to me in such a meaningful way. Rachael is truly a genuine and godly woman who wants to encourage others to watch how God can take our everyday actions and transform them for His eternal purpose. I promise this episode will inspire you to keep doing small things in great faith.
Quotes From Rachael
"The reality is everybody He used was ordinary, and He used the mundane moments for everybody. And I think we sometimes read scripture in these big highlight moments and forget the daily, ordinary, mundane ways that they lived, too, and I realized a significant life is simpler than we think."
"I believe if you could see yourself through God's eyes it would change your world. If we really believed that it would change the way we lived our life... every single moment."
"If nothing is too insignificant for the Savior of the world, nothing is too insignificant for me."
"That's what the enemy wants us to do, to be so discouraged and not believe that it matters and to stay stuck in feeling insignificant because then we don't do anything at all, and we bury our talents... There's so much at stake if we don't [do anything]."
