Praise God with me; the doctor found no disease in my arteries-which is awesome considering my diet at times, and the fact that I was a chain smoker for so many years. Thank you, Father, for your unfathomable mercy and grace toward me!
Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that we rush, rush, rush, far too much. We’re bid to “delay action in the little things until we get God’s guidance.” We always run to Him when the waves are about to overwhelm us, but we really don’t even think much about Him in the little things of daily living. It is those little things in our daily lives that empower abundant living, or living abundantly in love, peace, joy, laughter, power.
There are mornings when I have to ask Jesus to help me get up. Then, there are mornings when the chirping of the birds wakes me, and I think God’s alarm clock really rocks! Such a little thing, a bird, but so much joy they give me. Have you ever looked closely at your table when there’s a little vase of flowers on it, or maybe just one budding rose? It takes a minute or two more to set the table with flowers, candles, and the good dishes, but isn’t it worth it? Aren’t you worth it? C’mon, you know you are! I learned the connection between these “little things” and the increases in peace, joy, love, laughter, powerful living.
I have to address those little nuisances and little glitches, etc., that pop up through the day. I often have to remind myself I’m bigger than that person’s bad attitude or crabby mood. -Well, not so much anymore as I used to’ I’m getting better. My washer broke down once. Not really a big thing, considering things like catastrophic illnesses, fatal accidents, and the like. I had to take time out to get to the laundromat once a week for a couple of months. It turned out to be an opportunity for me to spend a little extra time with my kids, and we had some great fun playing the one of the games at there. When we stop and look to God for guidance in those moments, we’ll often find that mountain is really just a little ol’ molehill, after all. And God always blesses us in awesome little ways, just for seeking Him.
Love you from Cafe du Mondieu
