Dear ______,

We all have “little things” in our lives. The little things can bring us a smile. Maybe it is a bird that has built a nest in the yard. Maybe it is the sunshine as we pass a window. Maybe it is the smile from someone who seems to always be able to smile, even when things are going wrong.

Look for the little things in your life that can bring a smile to your face. The little things can make all the difference.

Zechariah 4:10 tells us not to despise the days of small things. Everything starts small. God is watching us in the small things. Luke 16:10 (NLT) says, “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones.”

God will give us small things to begin with. As we are faithful in those, He will continue to add more and more into our lives.

Often, it’s the little things that make us or break us. It might be the annoying nit-picky things that make us the most angry. The small mosquitos. In the big scheme of things, they don’t matter. But how we handle them does matter, because how we handle the little things is how we will handle the big things.

I’m praying that today you will notice the small things that are good. Take pleasure in the small things. Be thankful for the small things. The small kindness. The small breath of fresh air.

Acknowledge them. Thank God for them. Dwell on them – the good small things.

Praying for you in Jesus’ Name,

Rachael Hartman
Zechariah 4:10 & Luke 16:10


I’m raising money to help pay for this weekend. $150 will pay for one female inmate to attend the Kairos prison ministry I’m volunteering at.

If you would like to donate to the prison ministry, it needs to be in the form of a check made out to: KPMI (which stands for Kairos Prison Ministry International). In the memo put: Pulaski, GA. You can mail it to me, Rachael Hartman, at: PO Box 501, Bloomingdale, GA 31302. If you want a tax credit, include your full name and address on a note and they will mail you a tax receipt.

Thank you so much for your support and prayers! Every $5 goes to pay for a meal for one of the inmates that weekend. The meal will have a tag with your name on it. And we will have a paper chain link that will also have your names on a link to show that you have prayed for and invested into the weekend. Praise God for what He will do! Please keep me in your prayers as I will be speaking on Obstacles to Accepting God’s Grace, and sharing part of my own testimony in the process.

To add your name to the prayer chain (which will be visualized with a paper link chain – your name will be on one link) please leave a comment below. And please pray for Kairos #40 ~ Pulaski Women’s State Prison in Georgia. Kairos weekend happening August 25-28, 2016.
