Tiny Crumbs Of Faith


While out for a walk the other morning the song “All I Can Say” by David Crowder began to play on my iPod. Here is one portion of the song.

This is all that I can say right now
I know it’s not much
But this all that I can give
That’s my everything

There are seasons in our life when our faith is worn thin. Our heart has been broken into a million pieces and all we can do is scoop the pieces up as an offering to Him. Tiny crumbs of faith.

Have you been there? Perhaps you are in the midst of a season like this right now. You’re exhausted and it seems like all you have left to offer are crumbs.

As I think back on the seasons in my life when all I had to give the Lord was a pile of crumbs, I am so thankful for His response to my offering. When we bring everything to the Lord, He is faithful to receive. And, not only that, he assures me that my offering is enough.

He invites me in and I place the crumbs on His table. He graciously shows me to my seat and I feast on His strength. I eat and I am satisfied!

O God, you are my God;
I earnestly search for you.
My soul thirsts for you;
my whole body longs for you
in this parched and weary land
where there is no water.
I have seen you in your sanctuary
and gazed upon your power and glory.
Your unfailing love is better than life itself;
how I praise you!
I will praise you as long as I live,
lifting up my hands to you in prayer.
You satisfy me more than the richest feast.
I will praise you with songs of joy.
(Psalm 63: 1-5 NLT)

    I love the fact He is willing to make something out of the crumbs we bring to Him…all we have to do is be willing to offer them up!

    I love the image of the banquet table, exchanging our pitiful crumbs for a feast! Psalm 65 has been a source of encouragement to me for several years. I'm so glad you linked up today!

    It's not the quantity of our offering, it's the heart with which it is given. I love that He accepts my feeble offering and blesses it beyond measure. What do I have to offer Him but all of me. Love this!

    Indeed, I have been there and I love how He breathes life back into us even when our offering is just crumbs 🙂 Love that Psalm!

    This reminds me of the mustard seed of faith. It doesn't have to be big…it just has to be genuine! Tiny crumbs are better than nothing! Love your words!:)

    This is so very true. He receives just what we have to offer…thank you. Offering all that I have received today…a beautiful dance, isn't it?

    Eileen, linked up with you via Beck's site! Love the imagery in your post, especially our crumbs into feast. Reminds me of teaching the lesson of the loaves and fishes to our 4th/5th graders this year. Thanks for your beautiful thoughts!
