How to Celebrate Small Beginnings

10 Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.”

Zechariah 4:10 NLT

I am so excited because today is my birthday.  You know that one day a year when it is all about you.  Except it is also all about my daughter Faith. She was my birthday present twelve years ago today.

We celebrate together every year.  This year we are having a Duck Dynasty party.  So glad we moved on from the princess parties.  Although this girl loves being treated like a queen.

Anyhow, an even bigger celebration for me was that this is my blogging anniversary month.  I have been blogging for three years.  I came to

WordPress two years ago, and I am just giddy about what God has done with this gals treasures she gathers at His feet.

And before the celebrations begin I just want to thank God for small beginnings.

Many times the God-sized dream for our lives can take our focus off the little things we do everyday. The many small ways in which God is faithful along the way.

So when you accomplish that small goal today. Celebrate it. Thank God for the small beginnings, and pray you would not despise them.

This practice is something I personally want to use to change my perspective. Let’s tell the world we are not ashamed of where we are. Tell them, “I have not made it where I or others think I should be. But I made it here, and this is how I will celebrate small beginnings. I will thank God.”

I’m thankful for you today as well.  You are a treasure.  Don’t forget to celebrate you, Beloved! <3Melinda
