I received this in an email (thanks Kim!).
This image put a lump in my throat.
Let's be sure to thank God the for miracles, big and small, that He does every day.
Today, my daughter had a pressure-cooker day. In the "hi!" message she left on my home machine, her voice wavered, a sign of the stress she was feeling. When I arrived home and checked the mailbox, I sent her a text message that the schoolbooks she ordered had come. Later she called and said with a laugh, "God cracks me up!" She shared part of what her struggles had been that day, and at the very moment she was lamenting to herself that she really needed those books for her class, she received my text message that they had arrived. It was like releasing the lid of the pressure-cooker. God's fingerprints were all over the timing in that small matter.
I sometimes have trouble grasping the fact that the God of the universe, who sets planets in orbit and galaxies in motion, is just as concerned about our individual trials and tribulations. They are not small matters to Him. And I think that is what is so astounding to me! I could possibly grasp that He is the Creator of this vast universe. Or I could possibly grasp that He is my Friend or that He loves me as His precious child. But to be both just boggles my mind! You may have heard it said: He is so big the universe cannot contain Him, yet He is so small He fits inside our hearts. Close your eyes and imagine the far reaches of the universe. He is there. Close your eyes and take a slow deep breath - inhaling the very Spirit of God. He is there. What an awesome, unfathomable, loving, caring God we serve!! Won't you ask Him to reveal Himself to you more, show you something new today?
