Have you ever lost something and looked everywhere to find it? And gave up hope because it was nowhere in sight? Me too. The last time this happened God used my 3-year-old daughter Analiah to speak into my heart that nothing is too hard for God.
One of Analiah’s friends accidentally took home one of her puzzle pieces. A few days later she went over her friend’s house to play and I was given the puzzle piece. I slipped it into my coat pocket. After that, I ran about 5-6 errands and pulled things in and out of my coat pocket completely forgetting I had a puzzle piece in there. A few hours later I picked Analiah up from her friend’s house and headed home. She asked me where the puzzle piece was. At that point, I reached into my coat pocket and realized it was gone. I felt terrible. Analiah had gone a few days without a piece to her new puzzle. She finally got it back and then I lost it.
So, I asked Analiah to pray with me. I prayed “God, you care about the little things. You know exactly where this puzzle piece is. Would you please show us?” Analiah also prayed. We looked all around the van, in all my bags, etc. but did not find it. I assured Analiah it would turn up because I knew God would show us where it was.
A week later, I was pulling things out of the van and I found the puzzle piece. I was so excited!! It was tucked under the driver’s seat and honestly, I don’t know how I missed it. God is so cool! I couldn’t wait to tell Analiah. As soon as I could, I showed Analiah the puzzle piece. Her response was “Jesus will never let me down.” What? Did my 3-year-old just say that? I asked her to repeat herself and she said the same thing. I love how she was totally confident that Jesus would never let her down.
What an example Analiah was for me that day. Do I honestly trust that God cares about the little things? Do I believe that nothing is too hard for God? Oh, that I would have the faith of a little child.
“Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.” -Jeremiah 32:17
