Even in the small things....

This is my story of encountering God in the small things. It may not seem like a big deal or anything... but it made me stop and think about big God is and how He is all about the little things that seem important to us.

So, there I was, spending a ridiculous amount of time searching for a song without knowing many of the words and only knowing a little of the bit of the chorus.

Then, God told me to ask Him for the song. Of course, I think this is ridiculous, because:
a) would God really ask me to pray about finding a song?
b) and if so, why would God even care if I found it or not? I mean really, aren't there bigger things for Him to focus on?
Clearly, this was the wrong mindset. So, I kinda shrugged my shoulders and asked Him anyway.

Then, the word "everlasting" came to mind. (this was a huge improvement... the only other words I had before were "unchanging, your love never fails"... a line that is not even in the song)

A few more minutes of searching... I found what I was looking for....

Lesson: Never doubt that God hears you. Even in the half-hearted prayers about the small, seemingly unimportant things,  He still hears and will act.

"From the Inside Out"





A thousand times I've failed
Still Your mercy remains
And should I stumble again
I'm caught in Your grace

Everlasting
Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending
Your glory goes beyond all fame

Your will above all else
My purpose remains
The art of losing myself
In bringing You praise

Everlasting
Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending
Your glory goes beyond all fame

In my heart and my soul
Lord I give You control
Consume me from the inside out, Lord 
Let justice and praise
Become my embrace
To love you from the inside out

Everlasting
Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending
Your glory goes beyond all fame

And the cry of my heart
Is to bring You praise
From the inside out
Lord my soul cries out



"Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act." --> Psalm 37:5 (ESV)

**No matter what you believe, I hope that you can experience God in the "little things" at some point today. And if you do... feel free to write me about it. I'd love to hear what happens.**
