    These are such important things to remind ourselves of. All too often I fail to take my cares to the Lord because I think they are too small.

    My favorite line —–> “He saw it, He felt it, He knew the thoughts swirling around in your head.”

      Thank you for stopping by! Yes, He is an all knowing God! That is for sure!

    Thanks so much for this post. First of all…I totally need to do some more writing prompts, so this has inspired me to do something different today! Thank you!

    Second, I think this concept of our small issues mattering is relevant not only with how we approach God, but how we communicate with each other. Yes, there are probably bigger problems in the world than me griping about how I felt miffed for not being included in some random event, but to try to get over it by telling myself (or having someone tell me) that my issue doesn’t matter because people are starving and dying somewhere doesn’t really help. It just suppresses our honest feelings, which is never a good idea.

      Hi Ashley!

      I love the writing prompts, too, and really enjoy doing this with Lisa-Jo every week. I am so glad that you will be joining us!

      I agree completely with what you wrote. It helps to know that all things matter to God above. I have had people minimize my feelings when I confided in them, and it hurts. It actually makes the situation worse when you don’t feel “heard.” God hears us, though, and he loves us. He wants us to bring all things to him no matter how small. Everything matters and is important to Him!

      I’m so glad you’re here with us, Ashley!
