Inconspicuous

To those of you who feel invisible, consider this. It takes tremendous courage and discipline to be comfortable with being small and ordinary and to delight in being unseen and unrecognized, which are marks of true discipleship. A life of holy but largely unacknowledged influence means you are living as an emulation of the Holy Ghost; that you have taken seriously the charge to always hold His spirit within you. You cannot be big enough to consciously make yourself small without embodying Christ’s spirit. You cannot get to that place of smallness without finding Christ there. The moment you have the courage to let go of the ego’s thirst to be something big or to be something more is the moment that you find Him again. It’s the moment you become big again. (Matthew 23:12.) I hope this has encouraged you somehow.
