He Cares About The Little Things

I am just overwhelmed at God's goodness as I write this!

I can't go into details, but Derek has been going through a situation at work. Basically, if things went one way, it could make his job for the next year alot more stressful. From all appearances, it looked like this change was going to be inevitable, and we were both kind of resigned to it, though we did pray that things would just stay the same if at all possible.

Well, Derek recently had the meeting that would decide whether this thing at work was going to change or not, and I was praying for the meeting, that if at all possible the Lord would work it out for things to stay the way they are.

But with the Lord, nothing is impossible! It was decided that the changes were not going to happen after all! When I heard, I just wanted to cry, because I know it was wearing on Derek, but the Lord worked it all out for us!

I'm just amazed at how the Lord cares about the little details about our lives. This wasn't anything too drastic or earth-shattering - it just would have caused a bit more work and stress. But the Lord heard our prayers, and showed His love to us this way.

This reminder that the Lord cares and wants to hear about even the little things we have to deal with in this life came at such a perfect time for me. I know the Lord not only did this for Derek, but He did it at this precise moment in time to remind me that He's got this - He's got everything under control. He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7), He loves us (1 John 3:1), and He works out everything for our good (Romans 8:28), even when it is in a less obvious way than in this instance.

What an awesome God we have!

That's so wonderful, Callie!! We also recently found out that Dave is not losing his job after months and months of thinking he was...which is nothing short of a miracle, in my opinion.

God is good!!

I am sooooo sooooo thankful that He cares about the little things!!! Yet, isn't that just like God anyway? He asks us to be faithful in the small things, and then He too takes care of the seemingly small things as well.

love this post Callie! He is faithful in the little thing and in the big things. So often we put God in a box and say, I will let you handle the big things God, but the little things surely must be beneath you.
