Faithful in little things

I was working this last week remodeling a house. I had several appointments in the week too. Unortunately, I can’t wear a watch. They make my wrist break out. It doesn’t matter what it is made out of (plastic, cheap metal, cloth backing, or even gold). They all make me break out in a painful rash. Bracelets do the same thing.

The workers were annoyed that I was constantly asking them what time it was or to remind me when I had to leave for my appointments. My husband has gotten used to being my time piece, but he wasn’t there. They suggested I get a pocket watch.

Well, I did laundry Thursday evening. After unloading the washer, I found a watch without the band, yet it still had the little metal bars to hold one. It was still working and even had the correct time. I didn’t recognize it. I asked the kids and neither of them knew where it came from or how it got into the washer. It definately wasn’t there when I put the clothes in. I checked the pockets to make sure they were empty before putting them in.

All I have to say is that God saw my need and provided. Our needs don’t have to be great for Him to provide. There is no need too small. All we need to do is ask. What a great lesson for me! I plan to put this watch on a string and wear it around my neck.

Matthew 7:7-8

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Psalm 6:19-20

But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.

Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.
