If any of you have been involved in Vacation Bible School, you might know how much it takes to get ready. This year, I'm the resources director, which means I'm responsible for buying, borrowing, and finding (can you say sheep's horns??) supplies for 100+ volunteers and 240 kids. We'll just say that Excel is my friend (most of the time). Anyway, about a month before VBS, we send out prep projects to be done so that I don't have to assemble all parts to everything. Some of these projects are, let's say, mission critical.
Enter the Twisteez Wire. I needed Twisteez cut in half and then this little white, round ring attached to it. It is part of the craft on Tuesday and as of the Thursday before, the person who took it still hadn't brought it back. We didn't know who had it because they hadn't signed the sheet. Did I mention that I had ordered the wire VIA THE INTERNET and that this type of wire is not available at any store that I know of? And there is this little thing called SHIPPING TIME?
Needless to say, we were all a bit worried. So, I prayed and God whispered in my head, "It will be there." These words held me over for a day but the next day, I started worrying again. I asked God for a scripture to let me know that the wire would turn up and that we would have what we needed. I felt led to read Psalm 36. I turned to my Bible and found this:
Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens;
Your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
Your justice like the ocean's depths.
You care for people and animals alike, O Lord.
How precious is your unfailing love, O God!
All humanity finds shelter under Your wings.
You feed them from the abundance from your own house,
Letting them drink from the river of delights.
For You are the fountain of life,
the light by which we see.
Psalm 36: 5-9On Saturday, just before the director was about to order more, in walked the volunteer with the bag full of Twisteez wire, complete with little white rings attached.
The moral? If God cares about Twisteez wire for VBS, how much does He care about whatever concerns you? No matter the issues, He cares. It doesn't matter if you think God would deem it insignificant. What matters is that He doesn't view it that way. Big or small, He's there.
Have fun at the linky party. It's VBS, but I'll get to you as soon as I can!
