Earlier this week I was approached by a close friend. My friendship had changed quite a bit over the past few months with this person and to be honest I was hurt. I felt like we were growing apart and deep down I was saddened by it… But didn’t know how to approach it or deal with it.
I hadn’t expressed these feelings to God in prayer, I didn’t utter a word to my husband about it. It was just one of those things that I planned to keep to myself and hopefully just forget.
This friend approached me this week acknowledging that they had been pulling away and we talked through it all. I left the conversation really pleased with knowing what I was feeling was valid, but more than that, I was overwhelmed with the fact that GOD CARED.
This friend said God placed it on her heart for weeks to talk to me. That God continued to press her in her prayer life to acknowledge what was happening.
I felt so loved in that moment. That this thing that I never brought up mattered to God. Aren’t you so thankful that we serve a God who sees it all? He sees us individually.
“But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. “So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.
God is present in the details. He’s in the areas that you won’t show to anyone else. He’s in the big things and in the mundane tasks of each day.
I challenge you to reflect on your week and find those moments that you may have overlooked God’s subtle ways of showing you that he’s with you.
