The Smallest Details

tiny detail

God is in the details of your life.  Do you believe that?  Do you really believe that the Creator of all things cares about the smallest details of your life?

Let me tell you. He does.

I had a writing deadline to meet this week and I was working on getting all the details in order. But then I hit a brick wall called a synopsis.  Now for some of you, I’m sure writing a one page summary to cover an entire novel is no big deal.  But to a newbie such as myself, I’d heard so many negative things about it that I was dreading the process.  So I fretted and stressed and worried.

And when I started to pray, I stopped myself. This is dumb, I thought. I don’t want to bother God with this. But the clock was ticking, the deadline was approaching, and after researching a few different places and seeing opposite instructions, I was desperate.

So while I was taking my daughter to school, I prayed and asked God to teach me how to write a synopsis. I even laughed while praying because of course God knows how to write one!  There’s nothing He doesn’t know!!

After I got home, I checked my email and guess what I had in my inbox? The recent blog post from the literary agency whose blog I follow.  The topic?  The synopsis!!!

You see, God can and wants to work in all the details of your life, even the smallest ones. He wants you to know how much He cares about you, and He wants you to see Him work. Don’t stop yourself from praying because you think your request is silly or not worth His time.  YOU ARE worth His time. He made that very clear when He sent Jesus to die for you.

So don’t hold back! Go to God and thank Him for all He’s already done and then ask Him to work out those details you’re struggling with.  You may just find yourself sitting at your computer screen with your mouth hanging wide open.

“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. Now all glory to God our Father forever and ever!  Amen.”  (Philippians 4:19 NLT.)

  1. I was smiling while reading this. I have found myself in similar situations. True how we rate the challenges we bring to God. We often think He won’t be bothered with the little things. When He said “cast your cares”, He meant all of them. Why? Because He is a good and a loving God and He cares for us 🙂

  2. Thanks Joey,
    I think at times a lot of us think I can handle thing and try doing it on our own. And it may be good but was it what God wanted. Now I usually ask myself is this what God wants and I simply ask Him. Sometimes it’s ok and sometimes He gives me something different
    His thoughts r higher than our and His ways are the Best. Thanks for reminding me that if it matters to me…It matters to God. He does really care about every detail of our lives even the tiniest one. He loves us that much…That He gave His only son. . Love u and thanks.

  3. I remind myself many times that God wants us to come to him. Too many times we think that we can do it on our own! Be faithful and go to God in Prayer….
    Thanks Joey 🙂
