Yesterday afternoon I was listening to a John Maxwell talk that he delivered at the Catalyst Conference back in 2012. It’s a pretty impressive 30 minute delivery with a lot of really good nuggets about life change and leadership. Towards the end of the talk he tells the audience that he wants to leave them with one thought, and that thought is to “Trust God with Your Lunch”.
He reminded the audience of the story of the 5 loaves and how the little boy with the lunch didn’t need a miracle – he had his lunch. But he was the vehicle to bless all those around him. The idea he represented which really resounded with me was this – trust God with your lunch and let him use you to impact those around you! Simple, straightforward and doable – Today.
1 Lord, my heart is not proud;
my eyes are not haughty.
I don’t concern myself with matters too great
or too awesome for me to grasp.
2 Instead, I have calmed and quieted myself,
like a weaned child who no longer cries for its mother’s milk.
Yes, like a weaned child is my soul within me.
3 O Israel, put your hope in the Lord—
now and always.Psalm 131:1-3 (NLT)
Trust God with your lunch and let him work in you. Before long you will be able to trust him with so much more.
