The God of Big and Small

Have you ever found yourself stressing about the little things?

The dishes in the sink, an upcoming deadline at work, an argument with your spouse, maybe even worrying about a certain millimeter?

If you are like me, you probably tend to turn to God more when the big things of life come your way. Isn’t it true that we tend to ask for God’s help and guidance more when life throws the big curveballs like illness, crisis, and in times of emergency.

Why do we shortchange God in this way? It’s almost as though we figure God only has time for the big stuff, and that he leaves the little things to us. That is so not the way He wants us to be.

Dwelling on all of these truths has helped me find some peace during this time of wait and worry. Have you ever had scripture pop into your head at just the right time? This week I thought of the hymn His Eye is on the Sparrow and then the scripture that the song is based on.

Matthew 10: 29-31

29Are not two sparrows sold for a penny[a]? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. 30And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

The God who knows every hair on my head, and your head, and Brady’s head cares about every big and little thing in our lives. He is the God who created us, after all!

I’m totally loving this song these days and wanted to share it with you. What a great reminder that our hope and trust is in a very safe place when we lay it all down at the feet of Jesus.



  1. oh, Megan, I love that song too!! I blast it in the car when it comes on!

    I am continuing to pray for you guys. Praying this verse for you right now...

    Psalm 68:19 "Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens."

    Praying that the "One who gave you hope when you had none" (see, I told you I love that song!) continues to bear your burdens every minute of every day!!

  2. Thanks, I need that!

    Love, Deb R.

  3. Thanks for bringing me back from where I have been! You are AWESOME and I see God in all that you do!!
    I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psalm 34:1
    We say this verse every night...because without it I would grumble at the small stuff!
    Praying for that millimeter...Because OUR GOD is HUGE compared to that!!!


We love to read your comments!
