Nothing Too Small

The sun bounced off the surface of the water, leaving diamonds in its wake. A crisp, cool breeze ruffled the leaves in the small trees planted along the edge of the sidewalk. It was a perfect day for a walk, one of those days that somehow draws us a little closer to heaven.

I walked breathing in the cool, fresh air and, as often happens when I walk alone, I began to pray. There have been so many desperate needs in recent months – needs that are beyond the ability of mere humans to meet. Apart from the Lord’s intervention, there would be no hope. It is a comfort to place the burden into His capable, gracious hands and know that He hears and answers prayer.

The rest of my devotional is at Laced With Grace today. Care to meet me there?


Blessings,
Linda

God is definitely in all the details of our lives and I am so grateful. This was such a beautiful encouragement to me today, Linda. Thank you.

Yes, this is all so true; I still find it hard to "bother" God with little things in my life when so many others are in much greater need.

I wish I could go for a walk right now but I'd freeze! lol With the temperature being 6F and the wind being quite gusty, the windchill factor makes it feel more like -5F. Brrrrr!!

I so agree with you, without the Lord's intervention, there would be no hope. I really do feel sorry for those who don't believe because in this world we live in, having faith is sometimes the only thing we do have.

Hope your week is going well dear friend. xoxo
