We are remodeling our little house here in Vegas. The drywaller and plumber were here this morning. Once they were finished, I went out to run overdue errands. I put in Hidden in My Heart which one of my favorite CD’s into the player. The gentle cadence of this music relaxes me and helps me focus on God. I sure needed it!
This song, written and produced by Scripture Lullabies, is based on Psalm 46:10. “Be still, and know that I am God.” I was singing along with Still Small Voice https://youtu.be/ZzU0x1lFvBw while parking my car at Smith’s.
Once I went inside, I realized that once again I had forgotten the pharmacy closes from 1:30-2pm to ensure the pharmacist gets a break.
Humming Still Small Voice…. “Lord, I am longing to know you more. So I will listen…ever listen for Your still small voice.” Then I feel it in my spirit,
“Just look around for a few minutes until the pharmacy opens back up.”
I head for the back of the grocery store using an unfamiliar aisle to reach the clearance section. Just before reaching the clearance area, I see they have a dust pan for $1.49. Score! I just was saying yesterday that I needed to get a second one for the garage.
Thank you God for guiding me down this aisle!
Then onto the fun markdown section, I go. Smith’s marks the price down for slow selling items or damaged packages and I love a great deal. I find a huge bag of our favorite peppermints for $1. Nice! Then I see a lone 60 watt appliance light bulb for $1. It’s package mate must have been broken.
Lord, you blow me away. You care about the little things.
I had went to Ace Hardware before the grocery and their light bulbs were going to cost $15 for one LED light bulb. Too expensive for my taste. I only needed one small shaped bulb for my new bathroom ceiling fan-heater- light combo that the electricians installed yesterday.
Lord, you care for me. You care for the little things of my life. You guided me to that one special package of the odd light bulb and saved me money in the process.
Don’t you know that the pharmacy was opening the exact moment the cashier handed me my change. I was first in line and was waited on immediately at the pharmacy. I was in and out of the store in 20 minutes and had a new dustpan to boot.
God, you create time in my life by guiding me and meeting my needs. Thank you God for watching over me!
