He Cares About the "Little" Things...

Quite a few months ago I was greatly disturbed
about something in our community.
It was something that was tasteless,
vulgar, inappropriate, wicked
and it greatly bothered me that I, my beloved,
my son, my daughters, and anyone else
was forced to encounter it
anytime they drove through that particular area.

I resolved to say a 'quick prayer' when I passed this 'disturbance'
and, especially, every time I got the red light
that was located at this 'disturbance'.
It was a simple prayer... a brief request...
simply asking, "Lord, please get rid of that."
I casually, but consistently, repeated that request
{almost} everytime I encountered the disturbance.

Last week we had some rough weather
and the Lord used it to answer that
simple, 'little', repeated prayer...

As we passed by that 'disturbance' last Tuesday,
I noticed it had been blown and torn from the wind,
yet it still hung on to its place.

As we passed by that 'disturbance' Sunday,
the 'disturbance' was G-O-N-E.
I suspect the wind 'finished it off'
or, perhaps, it was removed since it was ripped. I don't know...
I do know that I don't need to know all of the particulars.

But I DO know that it was GOD that did it.
HE answered that prayer and I just HAD to share...
giving HIM all the glory!!

Thank you, LORD, for allowing us to see your power,
your promises, and that you care for even the "little" things...

"Call unto me, and I will answer thee,
and shew thee great and mighty things,
which thou knowest not."
~ Jeremiah 33:3

"I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live:
I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
My meditation of him shall be sweet:
I will be glad in the LORD."
~ Psalms 104:33-34

billboards are the worst, aren't they?

That is another example of why we should take everything no matter how big or small to us to the Lord in prayer.

What a wonderful answered prayer.
God is able to supply all of our needs no matter what they are.
Blessings to you and yours.

In Germany, disturbing billboards were and still are rampant. There were times we would drive by some and my mouth would be hanging to the floor at what I seen. My husband would say that's part of their culture or something, but I just couldn't believe that.

I am glad God heard even your littlest request. HalleluYAH!

God Bless You!

Praying without ceasing always yields results. :) I love that God cares about even the small things in life.

Thank you so much for sharing this - not just what God did, but also what you did! We forget, I think, that God is pleased with our childlike trust in Him. We "think" too much sometimes, and talk ourselves out of a blessing.

I'm glad that you went to God with your heart's desire about something "small" that was really breaking your heart, and He answered in a BIG way. Perhaps the storm was sent for just that reason.

Way to go. I have heard similar stories like this. I need to start praying about a few things.
