As I continue to write about being a Little.Fish. - I have struggled so.frequently. with that label of myself. It may reach back to the same topic I started with, Content to be a Little.Fish? Which may have resonated most with others too, as it has with me. I am still yearning for God to do something BIG with me. For Him to just surprise me, move in a mightly way, and use me to encourage many in their everyday.walks.with.Jesus. BUT again, I feel Him telling me to be faithful with what I've been given; I desire to be faithful with the 'talents' (parable pun intended) that I've been given.
"Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master." Matthew 25:21
One thing I've been encouraged by lately: running. I have a couple of my girlfriends from my high school & Clemson days who have truly inspired me to get.out.and.run!! So, we share our photos of our runs & goals via instagram, and the Lord has blessed me through it. I have been refreshed by the quiet space for my mind. I have been made stronger in body as I continue to push through what 'feels bad' but is making me stronger day by day. I have be held up in prayer by my girlfriends when they run, and I too have been raising others up in prayer as I run & he leads. I have gained a time for peaceful worship while I listen to music that praises our Lord & I cannot tell you how GRACIOUSLY he comforts me as I call out to Him.

|eventhough I didn't make my goal, I was really proud to go 5 more miles overall in September! |

This Little.Fish. can encourage. Even in the small. But, to build up others, to speak life, is that really such a small thing?
