Finding God In The Simple Things

On a morning I get to have some coffee, I like to pick a special mug. Sometimes there's no rhyme or reason as to which one I pick, however, this morning I picked a mug my sister Cathy recently gave me.

I was extremely tired so I picked this one, which seemed fitting at the time. As I was making my coffee, that scene from FINDING NEMO kept playing over in my head. After putting my creamer in, I clutched my coffee and literally said out loud, MINE!!! MINE!!! MINE!!! That's how I felt about my coffee today.....don't anyone touch it, it's MINE!!! Scary thing is, I was alone.

I don't know about you, but in the total business of life and all that goes on, some days I really wonder who I am and what my purpose is. I know I'm a daughter, a wife, Mom, Nana, etc, but sometimes I feel like I should be more, like I'm not enough. Have you ever felt that way?

As I sat there this morning looking at my mug, I couldn't figure out why those words, MINE!!! MINE!!! MINE!!! kept tugging at my heart. Then a scripture I have heard so many times, resonated so deeply with me......Isaiah 43:1

"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are 
MINE!" .....MINE!! MINE!!
 I love it how God can show us Himself and how He much 
He loves us through such simple things!

I have felt this way so many times. Laura, and then, like you God's word always validates who I am in Him, thank you for sharing.
