Thank God For Small Mercies

"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death"  Revelation12:10

I popped into Primark at the weekend, and my eyes caught on this panicked looking lady. She'd been lusting after a pair of shoes for a long time and while she had been saving up for them, they went in the sale. She got there to find about 15-20 pairs of sizes 3 & 4 and nothing bigger, and this lady is a 6. She looked and looked and looked, and just as she got to the last pair, she screamed "I love Jesus!!!" She really did scream in gratitude. Even a non-believer can believe it is only Jesus that makes such things possible. Takes me back to when He turned water into wine. Its was as though Jesus transformed a pair of size 3 into a 6 as she was rummaging through each pair from 1-18-just for her, her only one pair of 6...........

I soo wish I'd have taken a before and after picture. Primark would only be too glad to employ her. She painstakingly checked the bottom of each pair and arranged them neatly, according to size and colour, even sorting out mismatched pairs so she can separate the ones she had looked through and the ones she hadn't. She wasn't going to take any chances. It was like a work of art, labour of love, that she had to scream when she got her reward-her one and only pair of size 6's. In that moment, she was too overwhelmed with gratitude. In her state of indebtedness to God, she could not help but shout the name of Jesus. Small grace or not?? You decide. I would have publicly put my sign of the cross, (and sometimes even put my hands together in prayer position while looking up to the heavens) to thank the Almighty for a favour so generously granted.. I wish we all openly had the strength to openly declare what He has done for us, whether you deem it minor, your testimony could mean life to the next person.

     For mercies Small or Big - Im thankful to God.
