Do you ever look around you at what others are doing in and for the kingdom of God and wish God was using you in a “bigger way?”
I’ve walked that tightrope a time or twenty. Even being told by many that God would do this or that big thing in my life, but growing impatient waiting and willing for it to happen, meanwhile fearing that my offerings amounted to little more than a widow’s mite.
Sometimes being used by God isn’t the big things like speaking from stage or praying for healing for someone or writing a book.
Sometimes being used by God is the little things that no one sees like picking up trash on the side of the road, holding a door open for a line of people when you think you need to be in a hurry to get to where you needed to go.
Sometimes being used by God means being willing to set your technology aside, look someone in the eye, and listen while they pour out their pain.
Sometimes it’s the little ways we are used by God that make the biggest impact in the lives of others.
Scripture says that if we want to be entrusted with much we must be faithful with the little things.
“If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones.” (Luke 16:10)
Open yourself up to being used by God today, however He sees fit.
Because of Him, #HopePrevails!

A short brief about Hope Prevails.
Insights from a Doctor’s Personal Journey through Depression
Dr. Michelle Bengtson
Speaking from personal and professional experience, a neuropsychologist unpacks what depression is, shows how it affects us spiritually, and offers hope for living the abundant life.
Neuropsychologist Offers Hope to Those Struggling with Depression
-By 2020, depression will be our greatest epidemic worldwide
- An estimated 350 million people worldwide suffer from some form of depression
- As with the bestselling My Stroke of Insight, the author experienced the same condition she treats
- Helpful features include personal stories, biblical truths, prayers, and music recommendations
In Hope Prevails, Dr. Bengtson writes with deep compassion and empathy, blending her extensive training and faith, to offer readers a hope that is grounded in God’s love and grace. She helps readers understand what depression is, how it affects them spiritually, and what, by God’s grace, it cannot do. The result is a treatment plan that addresses the whole person—not just chemical imbalances in the brain.
For those who struggle with depression and those that want to help them, Hope Prevails offers real hope for the future.
