As expected, none of us remembered when we left the sixth green. Then, for some unknown reason, when we were about a third of the way toward the seventh tee, I remembered.
“Didn’t you say you lost your ball mark between the last green and this tee?” I asked.
“I did!” Deanna replied, her memory jolted into working order.
“Where did you walk?” I asked, ready to go back toward the green and retrace my steps.
“Well, I crossed the bridge, and then came up an walked along the cart path.”
As if on cue, Michelle, our third, who was a few yards ahead, looked down by her feet.
“Here’s something,” she said, picking up a small, nondescript object (photo 1) and turning it over. “A blue daisy.”
“That’s it!” Deanna exclaimed.
And so it was. As you can see by the picture (which was a close up), when upside down the ball mark was virtually invisible … to the human eye, that is. But not to God. He knew exactly where it was all along. Yes, some might call this a coincidence, and if it was, it was indeed a very precisely and divinely timed coincidence. (aka not a coincidence)
We often think that God doesn't want to be bothered with the little things, but as the Compelling Truth website says in its article “Does God care about everything in my life, even the little things?”, “everything is little compared to God; He created the entire universe.”
Multiple verses speak to God’s attention to the little things: God caring about each sparrow (Luke 12:6-7); His feeding the birds and clothing the flowers (Matthew 6:25-33). One of my favorites, however, is Psalm 56:8 — “You number my wanderings; put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your book?” God cares about our individual tears.
