Trusting God with ALL of it!

Isn't it hard sometimes to trust God witht he little things? Oh, we call on Him and will ask pray requests for the BIG things- someone is really sick, someone is dying, someone is hurting... but what about the small stuff?
What about the little prays- pray for deer unting seasons, prays for the bread to rise this time, pray for the little one to fall asleep right away tonight... what about those things?
Do you think that God is too busy to care about and answer those prayers too?
I don't. That's why I pray them!
That is why when my father-in-law mentioned he was going deer hunting and asked for me and the kids to pray he gets adeer this time- I did pray. I tucked the kids in bed and as we prayed, we prayed for Grammy's camping trip and that he would get a deer. I know that my father-in-law wasn't picturing me down on my knees in deep praying, crying and wailing about his request, but why shouldn't we fervently pray about those things too?
If it is important to us, it is important to God!
If he takes the time to number the hairs on our head, don't you think that He would take time to answer your 'little' prayer?

No matter what it is that is on your mind. Maybe it is for you to get all green lights on your way to work so you don't ave to speed and will still be on time... maybe it is for a favorite dish at your favorite restraunt to be on 'special' this week so you can sae some money... maybe you've been trying t make homemade bread, dessert, pizza or something and it isn't turning out just right.... maybe you just need a blessing--- God cares! He will answer adn He will prove to you that He is hearing your prayers!

A few weekends back we had a women's brunch. The night before the brunch I went to bed really late (or early the next mornig I should say- 4 A.M.) I was worn, tired and has just feeling stretched as a mother, wife, teacher, etc. I was praying in the wee hours of the morning and told God that I just needed a blessing. "Anything!" I told Him. "I just need to know You hear me and I just need to know that you care. I will take ANY blessing you want to give!"

The next morning I went to the women's brunch. I had awesome fellowship with other women, heard a inspirational message, worshipped to outstanding praise and worship music and felt God's presence in the room. Before dismissing, our lovely women's leader Chris did a drawing. She had a few little gifts to give away. The last name she picked out was mine... guess what I won: A little leather Bible in a cute little bag. It was so cute- the bag and Bible matched. It was small so it would be easy to carry to church with the twins- one in each arm... but that is not what got me... what got me was that I asked for God's blessing- I told Him I'd take anything- and He gave me HIS Word!

Lord, thank You!
Thanks is all I can say... thank You that You heard me!
Thank You that you cared enough to say 'Here, here is the answer!"
In Jesus Name, Amen
