The details

Bluebonnets. Sunflowers. Primrose. Indian Blankets. And my favorite – Daisies.

In Texas we do this thing where we pull over on busy highways and trudge through potential snake-filled grass – just to get the perfect picture.

A picture of intricate details woven together to create the most beautiful background – a field of Texas wildflowers.

The details that God specifically and on purpose placed right there for us – His artwork. His reminder.

In life things happen. Situations arise that were not expected. We may question how. We may question why. However, in the midst of those questions we have to learn to let go and trust a God that genuinely cares about the details.

We don’t have to fix it. We don’t have to try and manipulate the situation. We don’t have to worry. We just have to pray.

And in the meantime, we can drive down a Texas highway in Spring and look for the flowers. We can look for God’s gentle reminder that He deeply cares. We can look for His details.

He cares about the little things, and He cares about the big things. He cares about making things just right. He loves us that much.

28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not [l]arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?” Matthew 6:28-30
