The virus season has hit our house! Two kids had a bug last week along with my husband, and now it has bit me and two more kids! So I am going to keep this week’s post short and sweet and share two ways that I saw God in little, ordinary ways and how I was able to share these events with the children in my life.
Seeing God in the little things can happen every day!
The first way I saw God work in a “little” way was how the memory verse for school this week went right along with my devotions. I was behind in my devotions (not a good thing), but if I would have done it a couple of weeks ago, it would not have coincided with our memory verse.
Our memory verse for this week at school was Hebrews 11:31:
By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.
In my devotions, I was studying in James 2 about Abraham and Rabab and how their faith was demonstrated by their works.
Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
I was blessed by the fact that my study in my daily devotions could spill over to the kids I teach and I could show them how God was using the Word in my life. I was able to share how Rahab demonstrated her faith by her works — she protected the spies and then hung the cord believing God would save her. I challenged the kids that others should be able to see by our lives/our works that we are true believers as well.
The second way that God worked in a little way was how He arranged this week’s history lesson.
It just happened that the lesson for Archimedes fell on March 14 (3.14) which is Pi day. Archimedes is the person that came up with the method for approximating the value of pi. I did not plan for this lesson to take place on Pi Day. In fact, I did not even realize until the day before that the lesson fell on the exact perfect day. I was able to share with the students on Wednesday how God worked that out.
God works in little ways all the time; we just need to open our eyes. For example, a friend told me about a little vegetable/fruit stand that has been on my street for years but I have never checked it out. I went last week and loved it! It is only 3 minutes away instead of my 15 minute Aldi run, so I can get fresh strawberries and other produce 2-3 times week (for great prices plus I am supporting a small business owner!) This news from a friend has saved so much time!
Watching a beautiful sunset, taking a stroll along the beach, watching a seed sprout, and so many other things show us on a daily basis the splendor and awesomeness of God’s creation. Share with your kids the blessings God gives you so that they can see that God is real and that He is your friend! We don’t need to see Him in big miracles — although that might happen; we just need to see Him in our every day life circumstances!
