A couple of blogs ago I was making the point that in God’s eyes small acts of obedience are big things. When you joyfully do little things like they are big things then God will do big things like they are little things. I quoted the words of a proverb “For Want of a Nail” and also a Mustard Seed song “We Can’t The World On Fire.” I recently read the following poem from an unknown author in “The Word For Today” and thought it would be good to share today as it has the same sentiment:

One song can spark a moment,

One flower can wake a dream,

One tree can start a forest,

One bird can herald spring.


One smile begins a friendship,

One handclasp lifts a soul,

One star can guide a ship at sea,

One word can frame a goal.


One vote can change a nation,

One sunbeam lights a room,

One candle wipes out darkness,

One laugh can conquer gloom.

One step can start a journey,

One word can start a prayer,

One hope can lift our spirits,

One touch can show you care.


One voice can speak with wisdom,

One heart can know what’s true,

One life can make a difference…

You see it’s up to you…..
