Slaying dragons and mosquitoes

Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence. So please don’t lose heart because of my trials here. Eph. 3:12-13a

When we face dragon-sized problems and slay them with God’s help, we know there will be an epic story to tell about God’s glory and grace. Often, though, our trials are a conglomeration of mean little mosquito-like problems that annoy and distract and don’t seem to have much glory-bringing potential. God is just as pleased with us when we plow through the insects with grace and focus and He is just as present with us in our smaller struggles.

Lord, it’s not a big thing, but it’s a thing…help!
