I love Jesus because He cares about me; I mean He cares about major problems, but also He cares about the petty little problems I’m having too. He doesn’t just roll His eyes at me and look at His iPhone while I’m talking to Him about stuff. His eye is on the sparrow. I know He watches me!
Jesus cares when we lose the mate to a sock. As I was preparing to write this post, I wondered what the most mundane problem in life must be. I was instantly helped with that question when I heard, “My cozy sock lost its mate.” Did you know God wore socks? It does seem like a small problem unless of course, that is your only pair of socks. Maybe that’s what the Lord hears about most often from us. At any rate, He listens and cares. I wonder if He wears the kind with those individual toes in them? Can you imagine?
The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you by His love; He will exult over you with loud singing. – Zephaniah 3:17
Today I want to encourage you to pray about everything, big and small. God does care and He is interested in all the things that you’re concerned about. Doesn’t it hurt your feelings when your child keeps some things away from you because they don’t think you will be interested or understand what they’re going through? God is your Heavenly Father, and He probably feels hurt when we do that to Him, don’t you think?
Prayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays.
The Christian writers best ally is that of prayer. As we confide to our Heavenly Father the day’s best-laid plans for literature creation, God has the most brilliant way of blessing our efforts with His wonderful wit and wisdom. He adds so much more spark to anything the writer’s imagination can come up with. Any Christian writer who has dealt with writer’s block, then prayed about it, can readily attest to that.
No, I don’t think God wears socks, but I know for a fact He has a sense of humor! We’re made in His image and most of us have a sense of humor. Yes, a few people are a few fries short of a happy meal when it comes to a sense of humor, but most people appreciate when something is funny.
This fall, you should be thankful for your cozy socks, and that you have both of them. If for some reason you lose one, don’t shy away from sharing your sadness with God. He understands and loves you and cares. 🙂
