On Being Smaller...


Ever since I first saw this photo of Jet Li in front of the Jesus statue in Corcovado, I've liked it, and I thought I'd use it to highlight how small I feel when it comes to the greatness of God.

I read this verse tonight -

"Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up." - James 4:10 (NIV)

It got me thinking how much I like this verse as my name means "small...humble".

James 4:10 also tells of what has been happening in my life over the last week. I have humbled myself before Him and He has lifted me up in so many ways.

This verse will be featuring again next week on my blog as it will be my memory verse for the first of February.

To be small and humble...to follow Him...my name...my purpose.

  2. I like that verse too.

    I have long wanted to see that statue. I think for many of the reasons you said.

    What a beautiful purpose we have.
