God In The Little Things?

Is God really interested in the so-called "little" things in our lives?  I say a resounding YES!
You see, I pretty much just talk to the Lord off and on all carrying on a conversation with a friend:)
He IS  with us all the time, right?  Like last week.  I had lost my driver's license.......or at least misplaced it.  I went over the house from top to did my husband.  Went through pocketbooks, jeans pockets, drawers....looked under furniture (with the help of the cat).  Oh yes, even the cat knew something was up!  And he wanted to be in on it :)  To make a long story short, I could not find my license anywhere.  I was sure I had put it in my "tote", but after going through it at least 3 times, nothing.
So, I prayed about it......I said, "Lord, YOU know where my license is, would you please lead me to it?"  The next morning I was telling everyone in Sunday School about the missing driver's license and asked them to be on the look out.  As we were beginning study, I heard a voice say, "Look in the box."  I thought for a moment, then knew exactly what box He was talking about......albeit very unlikely it could be in there.  Well, I took a box out of my tote, about the size of a credit card, which has folding flaps on the ends.  The box was closed  ...but when I opened it, there was my driver's license!   All I could say was, "Thank you Lord"....."Praise God".   Oh yes, He's interested in every aspect of our lives, even those things that seem so trivial to bother Him with.  
The same God who has healed my body  in the past, saved my younger son's life on three different occasions, led me down a path I didn't want to go, so I would be able to help others out of that same path, yes...He WANTS to be the God of your little things!  So, pull up a chair, get a cup of coffee or tea, and have a little talk with Jesus........He'll make it right :) 
Yes, the same God that created these beautiful flowers, and knows the number of
hairs on your head, is interested in YOU, in everything you do, in the good times as well 
as the dark times.

PRAISE GOD From Whom All Blessings Flow!

I thank you, Lord, for the "bounty" of food you have given us this year in our garden.  I also thank you for the beauty of the flowers that bring joy to our lives.  Thank you for the bright colors, the wonderful aromas, and the goodness we taste from the food you have given us.  Thank you that we had an abundance over and above what we needed so that we could give to others.  Thank you for hands that can pull weeds, backs that can bend, legs that can walk......may we never take these things for granted....Amen

As we get ready to observe July 4th, please try to take a few moments out of your day to say a prayer for all those veterans and soldiers who have fought for our freedom and are fighting now.   Freedom is NOT free, it has come at a very high price.  And with this freedom, comes responsibility.  We should always show respect for "Old Glory", our Pledge of Allegiance, and those who paid the ultimate SACRIFICE for our freedoms.  
So, as you're fixing that next hot dog up and getting ready to do fireworks, just remember that our country was founded on Godly principles to which most, if not all, our founding fathers adhered.

I Love God's Word!

It's almost 4th of July!  I can't believe it, where does the time go??  Thank you for your prayers, the depression is almost gone and I'm about to overcome a bout of pneumonia.
It seems that when troubles come, they sometimes come in "bunches". :)  But "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!"  Oh my.............I get such good "Food" from His Word!  I have really clung to Isaiah 41:10 these past few months and it has really made the difference.  Actually, this was a verse I had memorized as a child.  And one day, as I was talking with the Lord,  this verse came to me!  What a blessing!!  And, how thankful I am that I memorized Bible verses as a child because it IS harder to memorize as you get older :)
I am SO blessed in so many ways and today I want to give Jesus all the Praise and Glory that He deserves.  Thank you, God, for your Word! :)  It truly contains "Living Water" :)
