HE Probably Knows the Gray Ones, Too

And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Matthew 10:30
After the ways God has been seeing to my details lately, I suppose He even knows how many of my hairs have turned gray! (I've stopped counting.)

Seriously.

I have had stuff going on. Things to do. Deadlines to meet. And while I tried to take it in stride, tried to get things done ahead of time even, when it didn't fall into place on my timetable, I started to get anxious.
But I prayed. I told God I knew HE knew what was needed, and I asked Him to bring it all together.
Then I sat back and watched Him work.
OK, I didn't sit there and do nothing. I was active. But I was trusting God to do the real work.
And can I just say? As I did what I thought I needed to do, God delighted my heart by working out every single detail.

He is so into the details!!!

Are you facing uncertainty today? Feeling overwhelmed by burdens or obligations? Take your needs to our Father.
HE can handle it all.
HE will see to every detail.

After all, HE knows the number of the very hairs of your head.
Now, if He would just do something about my grays.
Oh, yeah. That's why I see Clayton! *wink*

Awesome, Karen! I just love that God cares about the details of our lives! I know I need to seek His guidance each day, and He'll make time for the things that He wants me to accomplish that day---according to HIS perfect plan! Now, to just rest in that truth and not stress out about the stuff that doesn't get done on my timetable. :) God is good! His ways are best!! :)
