You've heard the saying, "Go big or go home."
If you aren't going to swing for the fences, you might as well not even step up to the plate. Perhaps you have already quit and have resigned yourself to a life of desperate futility lived punching a time-clock at work before heading to a night in front of your TV or your smartphone.
Maybe you feel a constant, ever-present sort of disappointment, because no matter how big you go, no matter how radical you try to be in your endeavors, it's just never "enough." Either way, wherever you are on the spectrum, Craig Gross wants to give you permission to breathe. To relax. To find contentment instead of comfort.
He wants to show you the miraculous world of the ordinary. Of the little things.
Of the small.
"The longer I'm around," says Gross, "the more I've become convinced that God doesn't really care about our "big" thing."
God isn't interested in scoring titles or championships or Most Valuable Player awards. He doesn't want your actions or your efforts or your supposed bigness.
He just wants you. All of you.
He wants to take every single action, every interaction, every positive word spoken, every negative word held back, every kind gesture, every diligent workday, every soccer practice, every evening spent over a hot stove preparing a meal for your family, every quiet moment in between waking up and getting out of bed... all of it. He wants to take "all of it "and turn it into something extraordinary for His glory, defined by His terms.
