“You need to talk him. Next year, things need to be different.”

In our house, my husband and I have been having this discussion for the last 3 or 4 months. 

The same words. Every. Time. 

But we have bigger things happening in our lives at the moment. We have chemotherapy to get through, every 3 weeks, and somehow this conversation - that is hard and uncomfortable to have - never happens. 

But at the back of my mind it’s being worrying me because the outcome of it will change just about everything in our lives. 

Then last week my husband mails me and says, “We spoke. Next year things are going to be different. And the best part is, he brought it up, I didn’t have to start the conversation.”

And just like that I remember that God cares.

God. Really. Cares. {Tweet this}

There have been plenty of times when I’ve wondered if God cares. 

Then something small happens like God orchestrating a difficult conversation and all of sudden my soul knows God does care. 

God cares for the big, hard, tiresome stuff and for the little, insignificant, tedious stresses too.

God not only cares about me, but he is careful with me. {Tweet this}

I’m trying to learn to relax and live carefree before this God who is so, so, so careful with me. Won’t you join me?

What prevents you from believing that God not only cares about you but is careful with you?
