“The steps of the Godly are directed by the LORD. He delights in every detail of their lives” (Psalm 37:23).
As a detail person, I love learning about people: what blesses them, what doesn’t, how they feel about issues, even what their favorite color is, what foods they like to eat, etc. I don’t always keep it all in my head but I love getting to know people and I find the best way to do that is through finding out all the minute details.
I think that’s why the above verse jumped out at me recently. I tend to think of most people as too busy or uninterested to care about the details of my life but what a blessing that my Father cares. He knows everything about me but, whereas people may lose interest, He’s happy to listen to me jabber on about whatever I want to talk about. If I’m frustrated, He patiently listens. When I’m feeling overly blessed, He smiles as I thank Him over and over for His many blessings. When I’m focused on myself, He may feel sad but I never bore Him. He just reminds me that my focus needs to be on Him and we continue to move on and talk together.
I want to continue to learn how to truly care for others, to be there for them when they’re struggling or when they just need someone to talk to. However, whether or not anyone returns the favor, I’m so thankful I have the Lord. He cares about every detail of my life–great or small. Is that amazing or what?!
