How many times have I done this lately?
Ok, why did I come in here? I came to the bathroom and into our closet.
Turned around, standing in the closet, looking all around.
Oh yeah, I came to the bathroom for something, not the closet. What was it? Let’s see.
Lord, why did I come in here?
I know, if I go back to the room where I first thought of coming to the bathroom, I’ll remember why I came in here.
Ok, I’m in the living room.
Looking around to see if something will jog my memory.
Somehow I don’t think I was in the living room when I thought of going to the bathroom.
Ok, what room was I in? I know, I was in the kitchen earlier, maybe that was it.
Looking all around in the kitchen and dining room.
Nothing is coming to my mind.
Back to the living room. Lord, please help me remember.
Back to the bathroom. Looking around again.
It’s not my eyeglasses. I’m wearing them.
It’s not my keys, I’m not going anywhere right now.
I’m all dressed and I’ve already brushed my teeth.
WHAT DID I COME IN HERE FOR?
What DID I come in here for?
Oh yeah. Now I remember.
I went to the closet, not the bathroom, to get a different purse to change my stuff into. I didn’t want to carry the big purse to church tonight.
Thank you Lord for helping me remember why I came to the closet.
Seriously, the good Lord has helped me so many times to remember things like that. One time I misplaced my eyeglasses. Another time I misplaced my keys. And another time I misplaced my cell phone. (I have had to use the landline phone to call my cell phone to help me hear my cell phone ringing.) I ask the Lord many times to help me with small, insignificant things like these. You may think it’s stupid to ask God for help with things like this. You may think He doesn’t care about little details like these.
These little things that I pray about are the things that I get to see God make the most impact in my everyday life. He most certainly does care about these little things. He cares about all the details of our lives.
Yes, he cares about the big things too. He cares about us having food to eat and a place to live and our health. He cares about a home for us to live in and a vehicle to get back and forth to work and school.
God loves us. He cares about everything in our lives – BIG and little – all of our needs, and all of our wants, our dreams and goals, our family and friends, our church.
He even cares about why I forget things occasionally and He helps me with it all, when I ask Him for help. I know I can pray to Him and He hears me, every time, no matter where I am. He loves for me to call to Him, even when I forget things. I have confidence that God is there for me always!
I’m sure I’m not the only one who forgets things like “why did I come in here”.
You have a blessed day, and remember, God loves for you to call out to Him too, for anything you need.
