Posts Tagged ‘God in the Daily Grind’




I had planned to write about God in the ordinary moments. Then this week happened. My birthday, which was wonderful, but also an eye exam the same day. All.the.LIGHT in my eyeballs! I was wrecked for two days!


Then sad, sad news on Friday—my sweet kitty mama died. And I spiraled into sadness.


But God.


As He is wont to do—and does so often—He led me to two blogs by two of my writer friends with just such a topic.


Melissa Henderson’s blog is filled with lovely snippets of ordinary life—and sweet nuggets of God-wisdom nestled in, like nougat in a chocolate bon bon. Pop on over for a visit, and be sure to say Hullo!




Then I saw a post today (Saturday) by Jennifer Major, entitled Valentine’s Day Tubes. She talks about God in the small things, because He is in ALL things. Give her a visit, too, and a shout out.




Now, the neat thing about all this, and what really drives my point is this: even when I didn’t have it in me to write my own post, Father God directed me to not one, but two posts that say what I wanted to say. A God-wink as Melissa calls it. A “just suddenly” as my best friend and I used to say.


Because He is. In all the details, every moment. Even when we feel abandoned, even when the bottom falls out or an eye exam renders us with a blazing headache. Even when you have a blog post to write—and can’t.


I’ve seen a meme going around that makes the point that long before Zacchaeus needed a tree to climb, God planted one. In the exact spot ol’ Zachy would need it.

Father knew I’d need to see those posts this week. And I thank you, ladies, for planting that fig tree for me to climb when I needed my little blog post—and couldn’t see one.


Truly, isn’t that what the Body of Christ is? Being the hands and feet of Christ, to minister to those in need? Even if that need is just a little blog post.
