Do you believe in miracles?

I do.

Does God answer prayers these days?  Does He care about the "little things" or should we just pray for the "big things"? 

In January, my dear husband, Bob, was working outside in the cold.  Somehow, his wedding ring slipped off of his finger and it was gone, totally and completely gone.  He searched everywhere that it could have fallen off but could not find it anywhere.

It really bothered him and me because our marriage is so precious to us and the ring is a symbol of that relationship.  Not to mention shortly after that in February we renewed our vows in a church service with all the married couples. 

We prayed and prayed to find it.  We prayed that God would show us where it was.  Nothing, no ring.


Four months later, in April, Bob looked down at the ground near our front door because he saw a glimmer of gold.  Sure enough, it was his ring!! 

We have no idea how it could have ended up there.  He had even looked in that spot before.  Only God could have arranged that!

I believe God cares about the little things!  I believe He wants to answer our prayers about small things.  He wants us to come to Him as the loving Father that He is and ask Him for help, guidance, the things that we need. 

To us, this is a miracle.  Something that only God could do.  It's like He is telling us not to worry, that He will take care of us and even give us the desires of our hearts.   Reminding us again that He cares for the little things.

It's not about a gimme attitude, it is about relationship.  It's not just going to God with our want list.  It's about having a relationship of praise, worship, adoration and trust... trusting God to provide our very needs.   Because He loves us.

Luke 12:7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Psa 37:23-25 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.

Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.

 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

John 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

So, if you have a need today, pray.  Bring it to your loving Heavenly Father.  Trust Him to do the best for you. 

Lay your burdens at His feet.  He will sustain you. 

Trusting Him today,
