Little Details and God

God cares about the smallest detail in your life.  If it is important to you, it is important to Him.

A few years back, I discovered my satellite radio had added a “Love Songs” channel. I put it on and a very romantic oldie (Endless Love) from the 80’s came on.  Leland and I dropped everything and danced a slow dance right there in the dining room. It was so romantic, it brought tears to my eyes when thinking about our very first slow dance 25 plus years ago.

I imagine you are wondering what slow dancing has to do with God caring about the smallest detail in our lives. Let me tell you a story of God’s goodness.

The first Christmas after we were married, Leland’s office had a Christmas party at the country club. There was a live band and dancing. When the slow songs came on, we danced every one. It was a very romantic time and one I enjoyed very much with my new husband.

Here is the important part:  By his own admission, Leland could not dance, much less slow dance. He said he had two left feet. He wanted to impress his new wife so he prayed and asked God to teach him how to dance well enough so that he could slow dance with his wife. When we danced that evening, it was smooth and it was everything a woman dreams of when dancing with the man she loves.

If God cares enough to teach a man how to slow dance with his wife, imagine how much He cares about every little detail in your life. What is it you need?  “…you have not because you ask not” (James 4:2). When your heart is in the right place there is nothing you can ask God for that He won’t provide, including dancing lessons!

Some people set God up as some high-in-the-sky judge who doesn’t get involved in our lives. Others believe He only cares about getting people to heaven and nothing else. 

The truth is, He cares about the tiniest of details. If you will only let Him in, God wants to help you with every single little detail in your life.

You have His Word on it!
