Small things matters.

I find this story is really true. When something caused you to be late, although you have made every preparation, something must be arranged in such a way, that you are been delayed because of some other events. And the GOD loves his children, and that is why he is making your schedule delayed, so that events that is gonna harm his children, will not come to pass.

In a show, Beyond belief, there is a true story, that a church choir, who never misses the church service for 20 years, was held back by each individual events, accidents that make the choir members, all of them, twenty minute late for the service. Because they have devoted their life for the church for 20 years, GOD was so deeply moved, that before the church, after long years, collapsed, no one is there to be injured or killed. After the events, when people have learnt about it, they pour in their resources to build them a new church, and the attendance for that church, greatly rosed.

There is another church, spole of by Rev Ulf Ekman. There is a church, where the door was broken by the explosion. In the end, the church door was blown  so bad, there is no door left. And never think of the fact that you are gonna get the person who do it. Rather, bless the person, because he have took of the door, so that outsiders can see what is happening inside, and there is nothing to stop non-christians from joining in the service.

After Sept. 11th, one company invited the remaining members of other
companies who had been decimated by the attack on the Twin Towers to
share their available office space.

At a morning meeting, the head of security told stories of why these
people were alive..... and all the stories were just:
 L I T T L E things:
The head of the company got in late that day because his son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was his turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her alarm clock didn't go off in time.
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike because of an auto accident.
One of them missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to  change.
One's car wouldn't start.
One went back to answer the telephone.
One had a child that dawdled and didn't get ready as soon as he should have.
One couldn't get a taxi.
The one that struck me was the man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning, took the various means to get to work but before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot. He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid. That is why he is alive today.
Now when I am stuck in traffic, miss an elevator, turn back to answer a
ringing telephone ... all the little things that annoy me. I think to myself, this is exactly where God wants me to be at this very moment.
Next time your morning seems to be going wrong, the children are slow getting dressed, you can't seem to find the car keys, you hit every traffic light,don't get mad or frustrated; God is at work watching over you.
May God continue to bless you with all those annoying little things and may you remember their possible purpose.
