Small and Simple things

"Now ye may suppose that this is foolishness in me; but behold I say unto you, that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise. And the Lord God doth work by means to bring about his great and eternal purposes; and by very small means the Lord doth confound the wise and bringeth about the salvation of many souls." (Alma 37:6-7)

 In life we are surrounded with many many loud, bright, exciting, and inviting things, but the Lord many times is not found in any of those. He works through the voice of the Holy Ghost which is often called the "still small voice" (1 Kings 19:12). I have learned that while life is full of many good things, many of the better things come in small and simple ways. Whether it be a kind word, a hug, or someone to listen to our sorrows. The Lord is there for us and if we will look, we will find His hand in our lives. What small and simple things does the Lord do for you? Did you realize that you were so blessed? I know God lives and guides our lives. He loves all of us. Keep your eye out for His blessings and you will find them!
