Appreciate the Little Things

Appreciate the little things. You’ve got to. Because when you appreciate the little things, you realize just how great God is. He’s not too busy to listen, not too busy to answer, and not too busy to do all the little things He constantly does without us realizing it.

I am at my desk, working my 9-5. The pen I’m using has just dried up. I know there’s ink in there, I can see it. But it won’t write.

Frustrated, I stop what I’m doing. I get up to go borrow a pen from someone in the office. I say, to no one in particular, “I really need a pen.” Then, I lift a file folder on my desk and there is a pen!

I didn’t have to leave my desk and I got the pen I wanted (it was better than what I had been using and matched the one I usually carry, which my daughter borrowed and took to school.)

I thought I was saying, “I need a pen,” to no one. It turns out I was saying it to God. And He agreed.
