Little is Much, When God Is In It

Beautiful blue sky and winding country roadLittle is much, when God is in it.  Does that apply to me also Lord?  That is my question for today.

When I was first released from the rehabilitation hospital after my brain hemorrhage, I didn’t know anything about living with a disability.  I was new to the wheelchair, and therefore, unfamiliar with what I used to do.

But, there was one thing that I could do when I was new to my disability and that was cleaning.  I knew how to run the vacuum; I could still put the silverware in the drawer.  And it gave me much comfort to accomplish what I could do.  Who would have ever thought putting the dishes away could give you satisfaction?

But it amounts to doing what I was able to do.  And I think that is very personally satisfying. This morning, there was an online issue that I had been working on for four days and had not been able to get anywhere with it.

My husband looked at this particular problem and was able to resolve it in five minutes.  It wasn’t because I had not been trying, because I had.  It was simply because I am not as “tech” savvy as Robert.

When I found myself emptying the dishwasher with renewed vigor and I felt compelled to run the vacuum cleaner, I was reminded of that time at the start of my disability.

So, if you are feeling overwhelmed by life and are only frustrated with everything in general, let me suggest that you do what you know you can.  For me, cooking is comforting, simply because I do it well.

Even something as simple as folding socks is an accomplishment.  God’s Word tells us in  whatever we do, do it all for the glory of God.  The answer to my question is a definite yes.  Amen!


About Raeanne Woodman

Less than a month after my twenty -fifth birthday, I had a brain hemorrhage. I had two brain surgeries at that time. It saved my life, but it left me unable to walk or use my left hand. I have been a wheel-chair user since 1989, nearly half of my life. I have always considered myself very blessed and quite unique. I graduated from Ohio State and went on to be employed by the university for twelve years. I met another unique individual at my church and he and I were married seven years ago. With this blog, I want to tell you a little about myself and how I've learned to live in our world. I love to cook, albeit with my own adaptations. I also want to share some great user-friendly merchandise and deals with you. And I would also be blessed if you would share your great ideas with me. This blog promises to be mutually rewarding!
