Weekend Words

God in the small things.

Much of yesterday and even early this morning, I searched amongst my wool stash for a small amount of knitting yarn exactly the shade of green I needed to finish off a knitted square for a blanket the ladies in our knitting group are putting together for one of our members who is going into hospital for an operation.

I had 3 or 4 shades of green, but they just didn't quite match.  I had just about given up after becoming quite frustrated at not having even a small amount of the colour I needed among all my bits and pieces of yarn.

I had decided I would just have to put that square aside and not use it until I could get to the wool store and try and match the colour.

But when I brought God into it.....I got results :)

I said to God in despondency "Lord.....I only need a little bit!"  and immediately, my eyes fell on a bag of yarn scraps (which I was sure I'd looked in before), and there in the bottom was just enough of the exact colour I needed!

Who says God is not interested in our everyday, small things!  I felt so blessed, privileged and special, that He would take the time to help me find that 'small thing'.

May you also be aware of how He blesses you in the small things!

And don't forget to thank Him!!

And another small thing...

Yesterday I was in need of a particular Christian book that I felt would help me work through some current issues I'm needing to deal with.  I took a walk down to the supermarket to pick up a few things, and popped into the Salvo's (Salvation Army thrift shop) just before closing.  And there on the shelf was the book...and only $3!!

Way to go God!!


  1. I don't think that I could cope if God wasn't interested in the small things because most of the time small things are all I have

    1. Yes...that's what life is made up of isn't it, a series of small things... xx

  2. Excellent! It often is the case that it doesn't occur to us to ask God about all these "minor" things. But as you say, they aren't minor to Him.

    1. Exactly! I think we forget sometimes, that He is always interested in the details. xx
