Little Things Matter

Little Things Matter

Whatever you do for the Lord
Cannot be called in vain.
If it is done with faithful heart,
Its purpose will remain.
When you get to the bema seat
You’ll likely feel surprise
By what God singles out for praise,
What’s worthy in His eyes.
The time spent all alone in prayer
And time with lonely souls,
Put patches over broken hearts
And filled such painful holes.
The children you read stories to,
The friends with awful pain
Who cried upon your shoulder as
Their dreams went down the drain,
Those hours spent to clean the church,
The cookies that you made,
The money given to the poor
Will more than be repaid.
“What you do for the least of these,
So you have done for Me.”
This is what Jesus did proclaim,
And all things, He does see.
So don’t feel unimportant for
The “little” things you do,
For God can see the loving heart
Inside, that’s driving you.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,
Denise McKenney

    Hi Denise, #iamtheconnector and I have a show just starting up called THE CONNECTOR’S COUCH. I shared this poem two years ago today and I am reshaping it again. Would love to do a live interview from the connectors couch,

      I am happy you can use this poem, but I have no interest in putting myself in the spotlight. This blog is to spotlight God, His workings, His words. Thank you for the invitation, but that is not what I do. I deal in written word much better than live interviews. God bless!

    Yes, ALL of those little things are important. Thanks for the reminder.
