Are You On a Merry-Go-Round? I’m Still Grinning :-)
Have you ever had them ruin your day? You know…the people in charge that have power to grant your request or not to.
Them. The ones that don’t really care about you personally. You know what I’m talking about.
The Carnival was in town this last week.
For three years they have told me I couldn’t ride a horse on the merry-go-round. I could sit on one of the benches but not ride one of the horses.
Hmrmph! NOT my idea of riding the merry-go-round!!! So I said no thank you.
Riding the merry-go-round horses has been a pleasant childhood memory. So being told no made me sad each year.
But I knew there was nothing I could do to change the mind of them.
I am not the adventuresome type, so this is the only ride I will even consider going on. (I know. I know.)
Funny, how important it became to me.
Well, THIS year, they changed their minds.
WHY did they change their minds?
GOD used a friend who knows the owners. He went to them and told them my story. My disappointment.
Have you ever wondered about God’s love for you personally? Whether He cares about the little things in YOUR life?
You’ve heard it said, “It pays to know people in high places.” Here’s proof. Look what OUR God did…
This is just one small story about how intimately God is involved in our lives. How much He wants to bless us.
Sometimes He makes us wait three years. Sometimes it is immediate. But the answer and the timing is ALWAYS from the hand of a Loving Creator God.
God cares about every single silly little thing that matters to us.
He delights to delight His children with tangible proof of His love!
And in this case, His child is me.
I’m still grinning…
