Five Minutes Friday: SMALL

It’s Friday night and time to join with FMF to write. More details are here. The prompt today is SMALL. There is so much to say about this little word, but I can’t say all in five minutes. Here it goes…

SMALL

I met one friend today and we talked about my life. I told her how hard last few months have been and how I hit a rock bottom. How I felt some people betrayed me. She asked some questions and I answered. Then she took a white board pen and started to draw something. When she was ready she asked “Are you ready to hear one question? It isn’t an easy question, but I really want you to think of it.” I nodded my head.

Is there anything you would like to thank for those people?

In one moment that small question changed my whole viewpoint. This small question took my focus from what had been done to me into all good what had been brought into my life by those people. Just few words and how powerful they were. Those words were like a big hand which lifted me up from one place and moved me into another. It shifted my whole view. Things which mattered few minutes ago, didn’t really matter anymore. I started to see things via God’s eyes, not via my own. I realized there is always a bigger picture no matter what will happen in my life. God is always faithful and trustworthy. Every season in my life brings something good and something to be grateful for. And whatever happens nobody can take those away from me.

Just a small question and so powerful.

  1. Very powerful post; there is always something to be thankful for, but sometimes we have to dig deep to find it, don’t we? I know that last year was a very hard year for us, but through it all, God carried us through and today we are grateful for all that we learned.

    • Thank you and amen! Many times I do focus on bad things forgetting all good. Yes, life is hard sometimes, but there are still very good things to see and recognize. Forgiveness is the way to freedom. To bless people who have hurt me isn’t always easy, but worth to do.
