I want to have a radical walk with God - one where I believe Him for the big things, but also know He cares about the incidentals - the details of my day. In the devotional I do with the kids most mornings, this verse struck me: "The steps of the godly are directed by the Lord. He delights in every detail of their lives" (Psalm 37:23 NLT, emphasis mine). I love that - God delighting in every detail.
And in inviting Him into every detail, I begin to see Him in every detail...
I stayed home from church on Sunday with under-the-weather Reese and Ben. It turned into a lovely two hours of reading to and napping with Ben. A gift.
Later that afternoon, I took Luke swimming after feeling a nudge from the Lord to do so (Dave usually is the one to do these kinds of Sunday-afternoon activities because I take my "day of rest" literally. ;) ). Another gift.
Both moments an answer to my prayer for having more one-on-one time with my two youngest as much of my time during the week is focused on school with Brianna and Reese.
The swimming also was confirmation about my choice not to shower earlier that morning. Silly, perhaps, to pray about that - but it's a detail and the Word tells me God delights in these.
So I will continue to pray for God to be in the details of my life and that I would see Him in the details...in my day, in His creation and in the lives of others.
If you would like to share a moment of God in the detail of your life here, please do. :) I would love to rejoice with you over God revealing Himself to you in the details.
