Have You Seen HIM?

Monday morning I was concerned about a phone call I needed to make. I had received a letter over the weekend saying something wasn't right with our insurance, and I was worried about the possibility of having to pay a lot of extra money. I made the phone call on my way into work. Didn't want to waste a precious minute getting to the bottom of this issue.
But when I gave the representative my information he said, "OK. Looks like everything has been approved. A letter with all the details was mailed out late last week." I was thrilled. And then I thought, You mean I've been worrying about this needlessly all weekend?
(Isn't that true for all our worries?)

After I thanked the representative for his assistance and ended the call, I got a great big smile on my face and thanked my Father. I thanked Him for taking care of my "problem" before I could even get to it. I thanked Him for seeing all my problems and working on my behalf to solve them. It delighted me to know HE had attended to my details without my knowledge, and in that moment it was as if God were saying to me, Karen, I've got the rest of today under control, as well. You've no need to worry about anything. I've got this! I could swear I heard a heavenly kiss after those words, too. *grin*

Then I realized, I had seen God in my details. I had seen evidence that He was active and working in my life. And I made a decision to trust Him to take care of all the other things which were going to come my way that day. Because I had seen Him!

Have you seen HIM?

Absolutely!!! Everytime I start to "worry" (oh why is that one of my pasttimes sometimes??!), I pray, whenever I pray, whatever I was worrying about seems to work itself out! Every.single.time!!! HE is so great like that! ;)

Yep! Then, I get upset with myself for not just trusting him. But then I was thinking, "you know, Moses' parents were probably worried when they put him into the river." But because of their faith no matter how small it was, God remembers that. (I read that in Hebrews today).
Thank you Lord God!

I fear I forget this all too often. He really does have everything under control...whether I realize it or not!

Patricia - God is so faithful. Seems we'd learn to expect that, doesn't it? *eye roll*

Gianna - Yes. Reason #5,872 I am so thankful for God's patience with me! ;o)

Leah - That's the thing of it. WE don't need to have realization. God doesn't depend on us. *collective sigh*
