It's the little things that fill me with joy

Today I woke up actually awake! I wasn't quite sure if I would because I went to bed after 11pm after celebrating Grandma's birthday. I prayed that I would though. I want to wake up sharp, alert, and ready. I want to wake up and have a little time to read and pray instead of snooze and then drag myself out of bed, into the shower, then scramble to get to work on time. I still barely had time for my devotion. It was about Trust - such a continual theme that I need. Again, the note about the cares of the day. My cares of the day equal worrying about how to use every single minute of my day to the maximum productivity. I try to go through all the products in our pantry and fridge and figure how I can make dinner in the time I have when I get home. I won't have time to go to the grocery store so it makes it that much harder. It's amazing how one little thing such as what you are doing for dinner can be such a concern and worry for the day. This time I just kept telling myself, "don't worry, God takes care of our needs. He will help, and pull through. It will work out." Oh how hard it was to put it out of my mind. But I just had to trust. Then when I was home on my break I found out my uncle who randomly comes home was home. One of the first things he tells me is how he brought some vegetables back and some sausages and starts talking about ways he could make dinner and what time I would be home to eat. At that moment I felt so grateful and overcome with a giddy joy. Once again He had pulled through right when I needed Him. I could just hear Him saying, " I told you to trust me."
