Our world is crazy. Every day we are surrounded by violence, evil and things that can just scare the heck out of you. If you take a step back and look at this world from a ‘worlds view’ eye you would want to get out of here as soon as possible.
But that is exactly why I choose to believe in something Greater, a God that loves us, watches out for us and cheers us on as we tackle this thing called Life.
I choose to see Him in the little things, because if we don’t find Him in the little things, how are we supposed to see Him in the giant things that our minds cannot comprehend?
This weekend Luke and I are venturing out on an unexpected road trip. Due to the fact that Luke has to be back for Sunday Service we will only be gone 2 days and the total trip is supposed to take an estimated 16 hours.
Yes you read that correctly 16 hours in the car in 2 days. Go ahead, you can cry for me, I already did. Twice.
Anyways, I need some serious reading material, and despite my best attempted efforts I CANNOT get into Twilight, I’m sorry I’ve tried. Edward just doesn’t do it for me.
But for the past year I have been completely enthralled in a series by Karen Kingsbury about The Baxter Family. These books are amazing, they are a little corny, but what good book isn’t?? I cry EVERY TIME I read one of these books, sisters, let me tell you, I love them with my whole heart.
The very final book in the series came out last month and I have yet to put my fingers around it. And once I get my fingers on it, they will never leave the book until it is completed.
So what does this have to do with God being good? Well I don’t like to buy books.
When I have a library system that lets me check them out for free why would I buy them?
Yes, I know the person that had the book before me could have gone to the bathroom, wiped, not washed their hands and then touched that same book I am reading while eating, but hey its free!
So it seems that everybody in my metropolitan system wants to get their hands on this book.
WhenI put my name on the waiting list last week there were over 60 people in front of me.
This morning while preparing for the trip, I realized that I was too far down the list to get the book from the library and I needed to suck it up and just go buy it.
I just received an email from my library telling me that the book was ready.
Last week there were over 60 people ahead of me, today it is ready for me.
If that’s not God then I don’t know what is.
I squealed and did a happy dance!
I choose to find Him in the small things.
Have a good weekend!!
