Like a needle in a haystack....

Matthew 10:29-31 "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows."

I debated on what to write about for this "Monday Meditation", I had a couple of thoughts rolling around, but it wasn't until tonight that it hit me.

Let me preface it with this short story - We went driving to find a vast canola field full of beautiful yellow flowers, proceeded with a mini photo shoot, and while doing so, my sister's gold and ruby ring slipped off of her finger. The saying "Like a needle in a haystack" never rang so true! I immediately prayed aloud, asking the Lord to help us find the cherished ring. My husband, brother, sister, and myself were all searching. How would we ever find this small gold ring among these dense, waist-high plants??

We reluctantly decided to call it quits, with the thought to try the next morning, after scrutinizing the entire area. I was just about to stand up after crawling around searching, when I spotted it right next to my husband's shoe!!! I can assure you that it was ONLY the Lord that led us to that tiny ring!! It was a reminder of so many things, several being ~ God hears and answers prayer, He cares about the "smallest things"(all we have to do is ask), and there is NOTHING too hard for Him!

I love the verses above and find myself in awe that the Creator of the world cares about us enough to number the very hairs on our head! He knows what we're going through and best of all- He CARES!!

Be encouraged and reminded of the golden ring in the canola field. :-)



  1. What a blessing this was to me today. Thank you for the wonderful reminder that nothing is to small for God.

  2. What a blessing to find this today - after a
    bit of browsing - What a Great God we have, and
    for answering our prayers... Totally loved this.
