Something I was just pondering....

yeah, I know I've already posted today.......I've been doing laundry. And thinking. About all sorts of stuff.....

Anyway, why is it that the church teaches you to ask Yah for the BIG things - you know, like a better job, house, whatever - but doesn't mention the small stuff? Doesn't He provide EVERYTHING? Shouldn't He be involved with EVERY decision we make?

I'm as guilty of that as anyone - I tend to blaze ahead on the small stuff (like today. I just ordered a New Zealand-style rug for Dusty. He's 22, he's feeling the cold *horribly*. Every year, about this time, I buy him a blanket. Every year, about 3 weeks later, Finn has destroyed said blanket. THIS year, I sorta half-heartedly said "Lord, Dusty is cold. What should I do about it?" and then...forgot. Until last night. When everything that popped up on eBay was a canvas turnout rug. :blink: OK. I can take a hint! :lol:)

Seriously, though - I don't see/hear anyone seeking Yah's guidance on the everyday stuff. "What should we have for dinner?" "What should I wear today?" Silly? Well...not really, if you think about it. Yah has told us OVER and OVER and OVER again that HE is the provider, right? So...why not ask?

I'm going to try to do this in my life. Try being the operative word. I know that when I seek His guidance on the big stuff, he I need to ask about the small stuff, too. I think life would run a LOT smoother. :grin:

Back to laundry...and supervising the children. Who think it's abusive that they have to clean their bathroom, and their rooms. (What? I'm not their maid! *I* didn't make the mess - why should I clean it up??)
