Day 12: Only One you

I am an ant.

A tiny speck in a sea of ants.

Actually probably a grain of sand.

And if you tried to find me

from looking from an airplane

you couldn't even see me.

And guess what~

so are you.


Doesn't that make you think so much more of yourself.

Actually it makes me think more of myself

because why would

GOD even bother to

SEE me or you.

For when

"I look up at YOUR macro-skies, dark and enormous,

YOU handmade sky-jewelry,

Moon and stars mounted in their settings.

Then I look at my micro-self and wonder,

Why do YOU bother with us?

Why take a second look our way" (Psalm 8:3-4 MSG)

Stop a second. Really stop a second.

Look up.

It will really blow your mind.

No matter how small you may feel.

No matter how small you may think you are.

GOD made the ants.

GOD made the sand.

I feel oh so tiny right now

and I love it.



as HE holds onto me

and HE holds onto you

into forever.

For if you were just an ant

HE could pick you out

in an instant

because HIS SON

covers me


covers you

so that you are SEEN

always as HIS~

"I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from ME, for MY FATHER has given them to ME, and HE is more powerful than anyone else. No one can snatch them from the FATHER'S hand.

The FATHER and I are ONE" (John 10:28-30)

I will never look at an ant the same

as I look up to the vastness of the sky

and ask

Who am I?

And oh

HE responds with a smile

and a belly laugh like a proud papa~

"See, I have engraved you on the palms of MY hands" (Isaiah 49:16)

I am in awe.

I like being an ant,

HIS ant

forever & forever & forever.

Stop a second. Really stop a second.

Look up.

And you will see that you will want

"NOTHING MORE THAN YOU" (listen to the song below)
