There are days when all we need is the tiniest sign that God is at work, and we can keep going. There are moments of bending our will to His where we fully understand that I won’t see the whole picture and no longer see that as completely frustrating. That place is hard to get to. Sometimes, we just need a little sign that God didn’t forget us.
In the thick of being a new mom, I prayed daily for what I started calling “Little Victories.” And throughout my day, as I would see them, I’d cry out to God: “Thank you Lord for these little victories.” They kept me going. Like a snowball gaining speed, I found myself energized to make it till bedtime.
I still need these everyday. Little victories are not to be confused with “things going your way.” Sometimes they are, but sometimes a little victory is simply God turning my attitude around. Or choosing not to scream, but instead sing when I just can’t bear the sound of a crying baby anymore.
To be reminded throughout my day that I am not going it alone is incredibly inspiring. I am capable of so much more, not only because I always have Christ in me, but even moreso when I REMEMBER this fact and allow Him access to everything so He can work through me. He doesn’t has for us to do all the work, but He does ask for a willing heart to be used.
I created a free downloadable worksheet to help us track down those Little Victories in seasons where we have trouble seeing all God is doing. My prayer is that looking at your list will always remind how God is at work no matter what the circumstances look like!
