His Guiding Power


Some people may call the situation, which I am about to tell you, a case of ‘women’s intuition.’ Some may even say it is a case of doing something automatically without thinking about it. However, because of the circumstances, I call it an example of his guiding power.

I had finished my exercising and loaded up the dishwasher to wash the dishes. Afterwards, I decided to have my quiet time reading “Guideposts” daily devotional book, and the Bible. I was busy reading when all of the sudden I felt a nudge, or maybe it was a whisper. Whatever it was, it was asking, “Did you put dishwasher soap in the dishwasher”? I read a little more then decided to go check the dishwasher. When I opened its door, to my amazement, there were a lot more suds than usual (to say the least). Naturally after noting some blue ‘Dawn’ dish soap coming from the soap container, I realized that I had put regular dish washing soap in the washer instead of dishwasher soap. After about five minutes, I had the remainder of the ‘Dawn’ soap and suds out of the dishwasher, and restarted it.

Completing my quiet time, I thought, this is just a very small example of his guiding power. He often guides me with a nudge, whispers, and other ways as long as I let him and listen. It lets me know that I can trust him with small, trivial problems as well as the big problems.

Needless to say, I am so thankful for that nudge, or whisper, for I would have had a great big mess to clean up!

Perfect example of God wanting to be including in ALL parts of our lives.

Good example of God's concern for all areas of our lives.

Oh, how I wish I had responded to every nudge I got in my life. But the times I did, I learned the love of God for the little things in my day to day activities.
Good piece.

Nothing is too little for God to care about. I didn't think your opening sentences were necessary.

cute.. I've been there with the soap, except I didn't listen like you did. LOL, but it was a learning lesson which I thank GOD for.
I thank GOD for those little nudges.
thanks for such a cute story and willingness to admit a mistake. LOL
