God's Goodness in Life's Little Details



Yesterday, I began prepping the seasonings for a roast that I was planning on cooking for supper last night. When I took it out of the fridge, it had spoiled, and I was upset. I had really wanted to make a nice supper for Bryan, and being at the end of our grocery budget, I only had frozen chicken to replace the meal. Disappointed, I cleaned up the mess I'd made in the preparations for the roast and continued my day. That afternoon, a couple from church dropped by unexpectedly and handed me a brown bag before leaving. Inside it were four beautiful T-bone steaks and a huge stack of ribs. God used them to replace a failed meal with an even better one than I had planned. I know this may not sound like much to some, and others may just bypass this as a coincidence. However, I know that God was being intentional in ministering to me, and I am so thankful for His steadfast goodness in the little details of life.

Ephesians 2:4-7 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages He might show the immeasurable riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
