SFG 1 Resources – Little Things

Little Things

(Posted on: April 25, 2013 by David McMillin)

(NOTE: While serving as mentor for an online version of "A Search For God" study group, a group member commented on how her understanding of being a co-creator with God had evolved.  She noted that maybe eventually she could become a more equal co-creator but for now it has to be "little by little" growth and a lot of patience.  Picking up on the theme of “little things” and aware that the next lesson in the series was Patience, here is the reply I posted, which I hope is useful for the lesson on Patience.  – David McMillin

That's a wonderful understanding of the meaning of being a co-creator with God. Many years ago I came to a similar realization and printed out the following excerpt from a Cayce reading and posted it on the wall next to my desk so that I would have to look at it while working on some pretty "big" projects:

So oft in seeking that some great thing may be done does the soul stumble over itself … (557-3) 

Believe me, I have done my share of stumbling over myself.  It is such a relief just to be able to do the little things that I know to do and have Faith in the unseen forces of Spirit that it will all work out for the best … God gives the increase.  I know that I must sometimes appear like a preacher that only knows one sermon: little things, little things, little things … It's just that I have found it so helpful (and essential in my experience).  So, while I am thinking about it, here are a couple more excerpts on little things that help me stay focused:

Putting away fear and doubt, joining with hope and gladness, ye may give much, MUCH to the world that will bring joy. For it is not some great thing; it is here a little, there a little, line upon line, precept upon precept, that the entity grows in grace, in knowledge, in understanding. And THAT is the purpose for which each entity seeks expression in this material world. (2783-1)

Not by some great thing. Smile often. Speak gently. Speak kindly. Go out of the way to do a kind deed, and ye will find that He will walk closer with thee, and thy life, thy purpose will become a glorious thing in this experience. (3376-2)

And yes, Patience is the next lesson. Best wishes, Dave
