There was a time when I did not have a washer and dyer in my apartment. Weekly I would have to drag my clothes to the laundury mat. During that time I was frustrated because if you know me;you know I will put a load of clothes in with the quickness. Yesterday I was in my apartment and I was putting a load of clothes in the wash and it came to me those times I would have to take my clothes to the laundry mat.
It reminded me to thank God for the small things.
The word of God says in Psalm 37: 4: Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. The word delight means : joy : a high degree of gratification or pleasure - so in my 2 bedroom 1 bath apartment that has a wahser and dryer I began to delight in the Lord beacuse he gave me the desiers of my heart.
Such a small 1st world request to present to the Lord but yet he honored it - Our God is so good. I began to sing praise in my apartment, over my sons, thanking God for the small things.
I understand where I am at is not where I am going, I understand that God has greater for me not just in material things but whatver my heart desires: healing, wisdom, peace, strategy, joy but during this season and others to come I will remember my now and the small things, and countiue to praise for where I am going.
Psalm 118:24. This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 34:1. I will bless the LORD at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth
