Nothing’s to small for Him


Sometimes I live as if it's only the lifechanging, world shattering burdens of my life that I can bring to God; I can feel as though the day to day things don't matter, and that they're to small to lay at His feet.

I can look back over the events of the past two years and see how shattered my world was; I can see the many tears that have fallen, and the brokenness of this mommy-heart. If ever there was a time when I cried out to God, it was then, when I was desperate and hurting and in need of His comfort and care. I needed Him to carry me, day after day after day, and to hold me up so I wouldn't fall. The crisis that rocked our world had me on my knees, crying out to God, begging for mercy and relief, and it would seem that just as I'd try to regain my footing once again, another wave would hit and I'd be on my knees again. But I'm realizing now, that I don't only need God would times are tough and life is hard, but I need Him every second of every day, through every argument I break up between kids, during every battle that often accompanies our school day, for those moments–and there are many–when I just need strength, I need Him. He cares not only about the big things, but He cares about every detail of my life, the big and the small.

** I'm linking up with the lovely and encouraging Lisa Jo today for Five Minute Friday. Today's word prompt was: small.

    I’ve been there with kiddos. This job of being momma is no small task. He cares about everything! I’m learning that too!!

    I’m late to the FMF party. Meant to do this last night. :) You’re the blog before me. :)

      Shelly, I’m so glad you stopped by from FMF! Being momma is a huge, tiring, wonderful, often overwhelming task, and yet, we have a Heavenly Father whose grace is sufficient for us every day! I’m so grateful that He’s there for us in the big things and the small! Have a beautiful week!

    I can all too often ignore the small burdens in my life, until they become all too consuming. I need Him every moment of every day, probably more for the small things. Have a beautiful weekend Patty!

      Hi Barbie, thank you for visiting my blog today! I totally know what you mean about needing God even more in the small, day to day things; that’s so me! The cool thing is that He is patient with us, and He’s ready and willing to help when we call on Him!

    Thank you for this reminder. I needed it. I’ll try to keep it in mind as I’m struggling to not yell at my 17-year old son as I’m still trying to get his butt out of bed for school 45 minutes after I first woke him. If ever I could use His help finding peace, it’s those moments.

    Happy Sharefest!

      Miss robin, thank you for stopping by my blog today! I sometimes think it’s harder to find peace with the day to day things than it is the big things, even things like trying to get your 17-y/o son out of bed!
