The Small Stuff

I am kind of a short gal. On a good day, I clock in at five feet, two inches. I know, I know—that’s not exceptionally short, but my height sometimes causes issues when it comes to reaching the top shelf of the pantry or trying to hang a picture that is just out of reach.

Although I might be short in stature, I sure am glad that I worship a really big God.

But even though God is big, mighty and powerful—he still cares about the “small stuff.”

Sometimes people come to me with a question or a challenge they are facing. When I ask if they have prayed about it, many times the response is something along the lines of “Oh, God doesn’t care about ____ in my life… its too small. I don’t want to bother Him with it.”

Great news, my friend. God DOES care—about the big AND the small stuff in life.

I’ve heard it said that if it matters to you, it matters to God. You are God’s child. And our Heavenly Father wants nothing more than to be involved in your life—especially by your invitation.

So today’s post is a tribute to the “small stuff” in life. You know, the stuff that in the grand scheme of things is kind of minor, but in the moment makes our heart skip a beat… and utter a quick, desperate prayer. Some of these are real life examples from yours truly…

God cares… when our pregnant brain has misplaced the car in the parking garage and we need help locating it.  (Not that I would know by personal experience or anything… ahem.)

God cares… when we realize halfway through a recipe that we might be missing a pertinent ingredient.

God cares… when our car fuel light comes on miles from the next gas station.

God cares… when we are running a few minutes late to work.

God cares… when we have generally “icky” days.

God cares…  when we realize you left something important at home when traveling.

Do you ask God for help with the big and small? Think about the “small stuff” in your life. What small stuff do you know God cares about in your life? I would love to hear all about it—leave your thoughts below in the comments!

Remember—God desires nothing more than to love you. He cares for you, and all aspects of your life… We don’t have to sweat the small stuff—but we can ask God to help us with it!

From Big to Small, God cares about it all,

“They’ll all get to know me firsthand, the little and the big, the small and the great.” ~Hebrews 8:12 MSG

  1. Amen He does…our one degrees matter (smile). Love you and that preggo brain. Unfortunately, mine still exists and my youngest is almost 2. Uh oh…Go Cats and thanks again for another encouraging post today sister!

    • One degree DOES matter– small stuff adds up and God cares about it. So awesome to consider!!

      I’m bracing myself for absentmindedness from here on out… that and the fact that I need to start writing down where I park my car 😉
