God is such a loving God, all knowing, he cares deeply about all aspects of our lives, down to the little things, even our day to day activities. He is with us when we don’t know, even when we don’t acknowledge Him, He is there. He will never leave us.
I was humbled recently by the Lord’s interest in the most mundane part of my life. It all started with having recently refinished my hardwood floors throughout the upper level of my home. The contractor had moved my washer and dryer out of the way for a few days while he sanded and refinished the laundry room.
After the room had been refinished and the stain had dried he and his helper placed the washer and dryer back in position. The work he did after 10 days was beautiful, I was thoroughly pleased.
That evening I had a dream. I saw my floor and I saw water spilling on the floor, it was by the washer and dryer. When I woke up in the morning I thought how odd that I had that dream. I knew it was from the Lord, I can’t explain how I know when He gives me a dream as opposed to a random dream one may get, but I just knew it was from the Lord. I just did not understand it at all.
Later that day I walked by the washer and dryer and I remembered my dream. I thought that’s weird, why would I dream that. I had a few loads of laundry to wash and I threw in a load of dirty clothes and walked away to do some house cleaning. For some reason I just didn’t feel comfortable about the washer and dryer, I knew something wasn’t right as I had a nagging feeling inside of me to go check the washing machine.
I walked over to the washing machine and I decided to place my hand on the snake like hoses, a very flexible but sturdy material. I was surprised to find out that the hardwood floor installer had not placed the hoses back correctly. It turned out that the red hose, the hot water was connected to the cold pipe and vice versa ! I knew immediately that it was the Lord who was showing me in the dream he gave me the night before that something was wrong with the water!
Praise God for even the little things in our lives! Thank you Lord for looking out for me even when I forget you are there.
“Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep.”
