If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith? Matthew 6:30
In my journey of this life, I had sought a Spiritual Director. It wasn’t seeming to work. I decided to be patient. I didn’t want to force something that God didn’t want. Finally, through a series of what some would call coincidence, and what I know is God, I have found a Priest who offers Spiritual Direction.
I had my first meeting with him on Friday. He gave me an assignment. He asked me to journal. He wanted to me to keep a record of my dialogue with God. I accepted the assignment. After I left I had every intent of going and purchasing a book to journal in.
But Friday became busy. And Saturday too. So Sunday, I went to the bookstore at my parish to purchase a journal. Alas, they were out. I would need to wait even longer. I felt sad as I knew the assignment I had been given would be put on hold even longer. I went to my Adult Faith Formation Class and my friend Allison said, “I have something for you.” She pulled a journal out of her purse that she had hand made. She had created with fabric a beautiful journal. She told me she had made it awhile ago and kept forgetting to bring it to me, but this morning for some reason she remembered and put it in her purse. I almost cried. My Lord, you are so involved intimately in every aspect of my life that you brought me this little item that I needed. I hugged Allison. She was the conduit who God used to hear my need. He is an awesome God who knows our every need. Nothing is too small for the love of God.
