I have a friend who is a journalist.
And he was asked to write an article about how hot its been.
He literally started it in the best way ever!
He wrote, "It might be the year 2016 but Mid-Missourians have been living in the 90s for the past couple weeks"
And that is how you start an article about heat.
It is like the best opener ever!
It's just so hot.
But the nice thing is that it rains or sprinkles almost every day.
So things are not dying.
Isn't it great how God takes care of us?!
Like this morning I was getting the water for the fitness room.
Once I got to the room with the ice, I see it's locked.
I was like, "Drat."
Then I hear this funny noise and I look over.
LO AND BEHOLD A SECOND POP MACHINE!
The main pop machine is out of everything good.
I only have a dollar in my pocket.
So I check the little coin return?
God had put a quarter in there for me.
If God takes care of something as silly as me needing caffeine in the morning...
How much more will he pull through on the big things?!
He even got me Spanish books!
I was so worried about not having Spanish books for my class!
And he got me Spanish books!
People always say that God isn't looking out for them.
But are they looking at the right things?
He does small things too.
Sometimes so small you might miss it.
Like with the quarter.
But once you start seeing all the small things in life...
Then you will start noticing the bigger stuff more.
You will also start trusting him to take care of everything more.
At least that is how it has happened for me.
I see that God will watch out for me with little things.
And if he cares that much about the little things.
I know he cares enough for the big things.
It's like a relationship.
If your boyfriend takes you on fancy dates and buys you flowers it feels nice.
But if he never does anything else.. you start to feel... unloved.
Almost like he has you for show.
But if a guy does your dishes, goes on walks with you, makes you food, has coffee for you in the morning when he knows you have had a long night, "kidnaps" you while your roommates are watching Harry Potter so you all can watch Snoopy instead because he knows you don't like Harry Potter, walks you to school every morning, and a million and one other little things... then you start to feel loved and cared for, and fancy dates are just a bonus.
I guess in seeing how God takes care of me in the little ways, I always expect the man in my life to do that too.
It might just be me.
But I dunno.
All I know is that God cares for us a lot.
He cares about the big things like finding a job, or when we are saddened, or when something awful happens.
And he cares about the small things.
He is just all around the best.
SIDE NOTE: I AM GOING TO GET A LABEL MAKER!!! I AM SO EXCITED!!!
P.S. I once told my roommate she is weird because she loves making budgets and planning money things. And she told me I like weird things too. She DOES have a point. I am excited about a label maker.... though if I ever need an accountant, I will call her, cause she is awesome.
