Sounds hokey – but I got a reminder last week that God is in EVEN the stuff that seems insignificant. We wanted to get kiddos a playground…million reasons why we couldnt seem to make it work. I was so sad that our good intentions were falling apart. Then I stopped – I hadnt prayed at all about this. Never even gave God a chance to be in charge. I thought it was silly – no way does God care about silly playground. So, I told Him what I thought…that there was no way we could do it, that it seemed silly but we SO wanted to give them this (we’ve never had anything more than a plastic playhouse and they never really complain about our backyard…they just make do). I just talked to Him…about a silly playground.
Then 2 days later after bible study I saw it. Across the street from bible study a house for sale that was vacant with a TRIPPED OUT playground in backyard. It was awesome – just looking at it I knew it was at least 3xs more than we could spend. No way this would work out, right?
Krystal called owner and after telling him that we wanted to buy a playground AND telling him that we’d been praying for this he said "OH, they’re believers? Then its theirs." Ya see, he was (that very day) about to sell it to someone else who asked about it – he gave it to us for less than 1/3 of the original cost…almost $1000 less than the other offer.
No doubt. No doubt at all. He cares about the silly lil playgrounds in our lives…and trust me, it’ll never seem silly to me again. Knowing I have a Creator who cares about every hair on my head…and every concern in my heart is what gives me hope for the rest.
Waiting…while its assembled
