When faced with a recent life challenge, Doug and I were allowing fear to guide us in how we were responding to the situation. With the help of my wonderful sister and helpful hint from above, we realized Satan was at work. On the way to work each day, we kept noticing a local church’s message board that said, ‘Not to worry, everything was in God’s control.’ It was a reminder that God is with you to guide you and to be so very thankful He is there.
Deuteronomy 31:6 (NKJV)
6 “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”
THANK GOD FOR LITTLE THINGS
By Helen Steiner Rice
Thank you, God, for little things
that often come our way,
The things we take for granted
but don't mention when we pray,
The unexpected courtesy,
the thoughtful, kindly deed,
A hand reached out to touch us
in the time of sudden need-
O make us more aware, dear God,
of little daily graces
That come to us with "sweet surprise"
from never dreamed of places.
Lord, we are so thankful for the blessings You give us each day. Help us to remember to always look for them. Amen.
