As I was just enjoying a delicious lunch, it occurred to me that the Lord literally provided everything I had to enjoy. I had a salad with lettuce, red cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, sunflowers seeds, a simple olive dressing and boiled potatoes with salt, pepper and a buttery spread made from vegetable oils. I wish I had of taken a picture of it but it was in the middle of devouring it in all of it’s deliciousness that a thought popped in my mind that God provided me with that meal. Now I know that he provides me with every meal but it just seemed so personal today. I have had that same meal countless times and never really thought about but today I just had to stop and thank God for that provision because He had his hand in every detail of it.
- He created the seeds that were planted.
- He caused the seeds to grow into the food to be harvested.
- He blessed people to harvest it all.
- He provided me with the job to afford to buy it.
- He has blessed me with the health and the mind to do the job he provided!!!
I could go on and on but I think you get the jist. He is our provider and our sustainer and He loves us. He provided me with a healthy meal that I thoroughly enjoyed and it just made me feel loved on. He just loves us so much!!! He really is interested in every little detail of our lives…even our salad dressing…and He wants to be involved if we will just let him. Take a pause and look at all the little ways our sweet Father provides for us everyday. A very “Wise” woman said recently that God wants to love on us and today…well I just felt loved on and wanted to share. I really hope that if you are reading this, you see God’s blessings in the little things and stop and thank Him for them because he does loves us so!!!
