Little Things

Mt 10:30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. (The Holy Bible, New International Version

We took a day off and went to a National Wildlife Preserve and a State Park to hike some trails. The scenery was beautiful and I enjoyed taking a lot of pictures. I found myself more interested in taking photos of insects. I was especially drawn to a beautiful blue dragonfly. Most of the time we don’t notice the little things. Often we don’t pray about what we consider to be a little thing. God does notice the little things. Jesus said He even knows exactly how many individual hairs are on our heads. If you can count your individual hairs you might not consider it to be insignificant but most of us don’t think about exactly how many we have. In taking photos of the dragonfly and a wasp on a dead log I got to thinking about how much I miss in not paying attention to the little things. We need to talk with God more often about more things – even what we consider to be insignificant. That is part of fellowship and fellowship is why God created us. Next time we are talking to God and thinking about ignoring something, let’s talk to Him about it. It might be a simple thank You, God for creating such a beautiful blue dragonfly. I did thank Him that one of the food sources of dragonflies is a mosquito. I also thank God for creating mosquitoes for food for beautiful, little dragonflies.
