Oftentimes, it’s the little things that make a day great. Today for provide-295x300 example, I was pleasantly surprised to find a financial ray of sunshine in our mailbox. It wasn’t a million dollars or anything, but it was enough to cover what was needed at this very moment and not a penny more.  The realization of this fact made me—and my heart—smile.

You see, lately it feels as though God has turned a deaf ear to my prayers. The daily struggle feels so overwhelming at times it’s hard to put it into words. But then moments like these happen. Suddenly I’m humbled, chastised and vividly reminded that He would not—could not—forget or ignore one of his children. Ever.

As hard as it is to admit, I’m still learning that my prayers are not always going to be answered in the way I’d like them to be. More often than not, they take on an entirely different form, one that completely removes me from the equation.  It truly amazes me how quickly I forget this fact. Like I had any say in the first place! :)

Lord, thank you for giving me just enough for today.
