Small Things!

Obedience in the small things and yes God cares about the little things!
Luke 12:6-7 MSG-What’s the price of two or three pet canaries? Some loose change, right? But God never overlooks a single one. And he pays even greater attention to you, down to the last detail—even numbering the hairs on your head! So don’t be intimidated by all this bully talk.You’re worth more than a million canaries.
Sometimes it is hard to keep my focus on the one who has created me and trust Him! Especially when I am facing something difficult. However, I am learning every day, just how much I need Him in the everyday moments. Without Him I am a mess and fall apart.
Today, as I was getting ready to head out the door to run some errands I tell the kids go get some shoes we are leaving. Then I hear my daughter say, Aidan locked us out of our rooms! So I go see and yep sure enough the door is locked to get into their rooms. So I grab a hanger thinking I can do this. After ten minutes and it not working, I am getting annoyed. The dog is licking my legs and the kids are running around me and I can feel myself getting upset. But thankfully before I lose it I think it is a good time to go put the clothes in the dryer from the wash machine. Then I hear just ask Jesus for help, ah yes why didn’t I think about that. So I tell Abigail we are going to ask Jesus to help us, so we pray and then I thought here goes nothing and then…yes the door lock popped!! Yes, praise the Lord!! He cares about the little things, I just sometimes get wrapped up in my own way of doing things I forget to ask the very one who loves me unconditionally for help.
Do you know what else is amazing, as soon as we get in the vehicle, I turn on the radio and this song is playing~Lord I need YOU!  I love how He is always there; I just need to keep my heart open to hearing and seeing Him in my everyday living!
Psalm 139:1-18 O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit or stand. When far away you know my every thought. You chart the path ahead of me and tell me where to stop and rest. Every moment you know where I am. You know what I am going to say before I even say it. You both precede and follow me and place your hand of blessing on my head.
This is too glorious, too wonderful to believe! I can never be lost to your Spirit! I can never get away from my God! If I go up to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the place of the dead, you are there. If I ride the morning winds to the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, your strength will support me. If I try to hide in the darkness, the night becomes light around me. For even darkness cannot hide from God; to you the night shines as bright as day. Darkness and light are both alike to you.
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit them together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! It is amazing to think about. Your workmanship is marvelous—and how well I know it. You were there while I was being formed in utter seclusion! You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe. Every day was recorded in your book!
How precious it is, Lord, to realize that you are THINKING ABOUT ME CONSTANTLY! I can’t even count how many times a day your thoughts turn toward me. And when I waken in the morning, you are still thinking of me!

Now I can officially add another item to my list of motherhood responsibilities…locksmith! :)
