Faithful Fridays (A Day Late)
My daughter, Joy, came to me with an idea that she would like to do on her blog a couple of weeks ago. She wanted to share her faith in some way that others could share too. She wanted to do Faithful Fridays. Mandie was so sweet to make her this button to use. So on Fridays (we both forgot yesterday), she will share and invite others to share their faith in someway. The idea is to tell something God has done or is doing for you or your family. If you would like to participate, post and use the button, and then click over to Joy's blog and let her know through a comment that you did, so anyone that visits her Faithful Fridays can stop by and visit yours too!
First of all, I can't imagine getting through a single day with trusting the Lord. I depend on Him so much for every little thing. So today, that's what I thought I would share.....those little things. Things like the night it was storming when it was time to go to bed......I really don't like to go to bed when I know there are storm warnings out. I just told the Lord I was turning it over to Him, that He was almighty and able to take care of us all and that I trusted Him to do so and I was going to lie down and close my eyes and go to sleep and to please protect us all and wake me or Jason up if we needed to be awakened to act and take care of our family. I know that may sound small or even odd to some, but I honestly do trust the Lord for those little things.
Another small thing was the Creative Writing class that I was teaching in our homeschool co-op class. I really have looked forward to teaching this series of classes and my prayer was that the Lord would bless it and use me and make this class fun for all the kids and put in their heart a desire to write and know that it's a good thing...and fun. I really believe He blessed it and I feel like the kids had a good time and enjoyed the class. I know I enjoyed it and the kids!
Again, those may seem silly to you, but that's okay. If you don't already do so, give it a try, pray about those "little" things. We always think to pray when something goes wrong, or someone is sick, or when it comes to financial things, but trust God with those little things. He's so faithful to answer those prayers too!
Thank you Lord for your answered prayers, on even the smallest things! :)
Blessings to you all! Have a great weekend!
