If you read my preggo blog, you know I got a pinched nerve last week. I was unable to move my arm for one day, hand for two and it took about a week for my thumb to return to normal. It actually still isn't 100% yet!:/
Anyhow not using my thumb was a nightmare. Who would have ever thought something so small could be so useful!
It quickly reminded me of the scripture of how God places us in the body as it pleases him! Sometimes we don't think we play an instrumental role. Or perhaps we don't value someone's role in the kingdom, but God forbid we lost them we would certainly see/feel the effects of that!
We all have a part to play, no matter how large or small. It never occurred to me how useful my thumb was till I pinched my nerve...now that's its on the mend I truly covet it!
Are there people you take for granted in your church and ministry? Don't let loosing them be the only way you learn to appreciate them!
