Our God, the Creator of the universe, is also God of the little details.
He grows the mighty oak tree . . . but the tiniest blooms are His handiwork, too.
It's just that our eyes don't always see the almost-hidden beauty all around us.

I'm thankful His eyes and ears and big heart never miss any detail in our lives.
He's concerned about the big, overwhelming problems,
but the little things matter to Him, too.

And He never fails to see the "little things" we do . . . those acts of kindness that no one else knows about . . . the prayers we pray . . . the behind-the-scenes
service to others. In fact, I think these are the very things He sees as most beautiful in our lives.

I agree with the songwriter: Little is much if God is in it!
And if God is in it, He'll make something beautiful of it!
That's the way His amazing one-size-fits-all Love works!

You are right... LITTLE is just as important in the eyes of God as BIG is... Great words, Glenda. Thanks for sharing.

I am so glad that He sees the little things, especially since I have done nothing big at all! :) Glenda, you always have a way of reminding me of what's important when I need it the most. Carla

It's so comforting to know that God sees all the little things. How many times have we done something that no one knows about. Beautiful post.

LOVE this!! I think the attention that God gives to little things (even microscopic things!) is His way of reminding us that He cares about EVERY part of our lives.
