What Matters...

"The God who created names and numbers and the stars in the heavens also numbers the hairs of my head.....
He pays attention to the very big things and to the small ones.
What matters to me matters to Him, and that changes my life."

~ Elisabeth Elliot ~

What matters to me matters to God, no matter how big or small a thing is. Like any parent, when I think of my children and grandchildren it is the same thing...if it matters to them, it matters to me. Makes it easier to comprehend when I think about it that way.

There are things I am trying to change in my life and because they align with what God's Word says for me....my life will change because I matter to God. It is hard to comprehend that the God who created the universe would care about the little things in my life. But he does! What a personal God we serve and love. I can just imagine God saying, "If it matters to you, then it matters to me." Now, that's love!

"The LORD will accomplish what concerns me;
Your lovingkindness, O LORD, is everlasting; Do not forsake the works of Your hands."
Psalm 138:8


"I will cry to God Most High,
To God who accomplishes all things for me."
Psalm 57:2

Thanks for your reminder that what matters to me matters to God. I forget that sometimes. I loved the verses from Psalms. Love the promise, "The Lord will accomplish what concerns me.."

Great and uplifting post!

Hello Patty!

Oh it is so wonderful to know that He does care even about the small things. As you stated, it is so hard to comprehend the Master of the Universe the Creator of all things being so concerned with the dailies of our life. And I must confess I still do not quite understand why He loves us so, but I just know that He does. Thank you so much Patty, as I said before, yours is special place I look forward to visiting. Have a lovely weekend.
