Little Things

Today, I went to a Renaissance Festival for the first time in at least a decade. It was great. It was so much better than the last time when I felt like I had wasted my money.

At first, I was a bit worried because I realized when I arrived that I had forgotten to get more cash. I thought I might run short. But as it turns out, I had exactly the right amount. I started out with $9 and left with no cash left.

I believe that is an example of God’s faithfulness in the little things. And for me, those are generally the hardest to entrust to God.

I can put the major stuff in God’s hands because I know there’s no way I can do otherwise. But when it comes to the little stuff, I’m more tempted to say, “Nah, God. I’m good. I got this” and miss an opportunity for God to show up and show out. Plus, I typically find out that I in fact am not good and don’t in fact have this.

If I can trust God in those million little daily things, then I can trust Him when the big stuff happens. I can trust Him when my world falls apart and nothing makes sense. God is faithful in the little and the big and all the in between because that is who He is.
