I am truly amazed how God uses books,videos,music, and circumstances to minister to others. God placed on y heart to use a Childrens book titled Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon by Patty Lovell.
Molly was short,had the biggest buck-teeth you had ever seen,had a very raspy voice,and she drop things quite often. Molly’s grandma had told her to stand tall, smile big, to sing out clear and strong, and to believe in herself and Molly did all that her grandma had told her, especially when Molly had to move and start in a new school and face the class bully Ronald Durkin.
Ronald Durkin had called Molly all kinds of names and even said she had made a snowflake all wrong. Molly took the advice her grandma had given her and put it to use on good ole Ronald Durkin. By the end of the week Ronald gave Molly a gift and even smiled at her. That night she wrote her grandma a letter telling her grandma that all the things she had told her was true.
I know we have been there like Molly at some point in our life, whether it was a class bully, a coworker, boss,or just someone in passing. What I admired most about Molly was she chose to rise above her circumstances and put to use the advice her grandma gave her.
Sweet Sisters in Christ our own Heavenly Father gives us the same advice that Molly’s grandma gave her. The verse that comes to mind is Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
My challenge to you is to Stand Tall like Molly did and to trust in Our Heavenly Father because He is there at all times.
Be Blessed and a Blessing!
