Just a Thought...

I read this question on a blog yesterday and it really struck me:

What are you doing today that is causing you to live on faith?
Meredith's response hit me too because it wasn't some huge thing that she was doing that had her relying on her faith. It was going to Costco. Why, because God is in the little things...all the time. He is there when we need to take the deep breath instead of yell at our kids, He's there when you're stuck in traffic and the gas light comes on, He's there when you thought you bought all of the ingredients for a recipe and you forgot one thing (read this post)...and on and on.
So, what am I doing today that is causing me to live on faith...living life. The day to day things need my faith too. Meredith pointed out that even after the storm, we still need God. So true.
So, right now there is no huge storm, just the day to day...making quiet time for him, figuring out how to pay the bills, taking care of my children, giving a 100% to my husband, praying for others. All the while God is whispering to me, guiding me along.
I also know that when the storm does come, He will give me shelter and I may lean on faith a little harder...but, I need to remember that God is in everything...every little detail and I thank Him for that.

Thanks for that today Kel. I needed it. Sometimes I feel like such a spoiled American girl compared to so many in the world and I forget that Christ is with me in my day-to-day life just as much as He's with others, even at the store or in our most hectic time of the day.
Have a great weekend with your hubby and kids.
