No Sacrifice is too small.
And when you fast, be not as the hypocrites,
sad. For they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Amen
I say to you, they have received their reward. But thou, when thou fastest anoint
thy head, and wash thy face; That thou appear not to men to fast, but to thy Father
who is in secret: and thy Father who seeth in secret, will repay thee.
Nancy offered her liquid fast to God today for a very serious intention
along with her prayers. Later in the afternoon she was hungry and she broke her
fast by taking a couple of bites of food. While she was regretting how she did not
do better she began to wonder if this offering really matters. Moments later a gold
mystical light appeared. At that moment she got a strong sense that there was indeed
someone there even though she could not distinguish any specific shape in this light.
She understood in a real way that no sacrifice is too small as an
offering to God.
Our living God is everywhere. Not a thought, not a word, not an action,
does our Merciful, loving God miss. He really is right there with us, loving us,
caring about us and helping us.
Give God your prayers, your daily offerings and most of all your
heart where ever you are. Remember you can never outdo His generosity.
