Thank God for Little Problems

 November 9, 2017

Season of Gratitude

For days she doctored and nursed her sick kids, cleaning up vomit, washing sheets, spooning out chicken noodle soup, and finally they’re well. They’ve returned to school!

The phone rings. The school nurse reports that the “bug” has bitten her son again and that he needs to come home. She feels miserable for both of them as she gathers keys and purse and heads for the car.

The phone interrupts her exit from the house. Her anguished sister tearfully tells of her adult children and of their serious problems.

Lord, bless those with big problems. And thank you for the little problems. I can handle them–with your help.

I thank you, Lord, with all my heart; before the gods to you I sing . . . When I cried out, you answered; you strengthened my spirit.    Psalm 138:1,3
