The voice mail came a few days later that the five had already been chosen before my slip was received...
And it was okay because I was able to leave. Had I ridden the bus I would have still be overdressed but I would have also been stuck there.
As I walked to the car I realized, anew, that God is in the small stuff. Our trust in Him does not need to be limited to the "big" things but that He is involved in all the details of our lives.
God looks out for His children.
Isn't that such a comfort?
He takes care of me even though that may not be immediately apparent.
I was so frustrated about being slighted for this trip and here I see how God has worked it all out for my good just as He's promised.
"And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28 RSV
"The steps of the godly are directed by the Lord. He delights in every detail of their lives" Psalm 37:23NLT
I am now home, in casual clothes, drinking a very large iced coffee and taking care of the other things that needed to be done today and I am writing, to you, because I have this evidence I have to share - YES, yes, God does care about the small stuff and as He was faithful to remind me of that today I want to encourage you!
