“Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will.” —Matthew 10:29, NKJV “It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear.” —Isaiah 65:24, NKJV

One recent Mother’s Day week afforded me an experience I will long remember. My husband and I had a wonderful time in South Carolina, United States, a state we had not visited before. I was so excited to see and photograph flowers of many different sizes, textures, and hues. I was pleased with the number of photos I had taken with my cell phone.

A couple of months later, while on vacation, the camera on my cell phone with which I had captured the Mother’s Day photos refused to function.

In spite of several attempts and troubleshooting strategies, the camera would not work. As a result, I had to depend on my husband to lend me his cell phone whenever I wanted to capture some highlights from my summer vacation.

I concluded that I would need to acquire a new cell phone.

But God had other plans. On a beautiful September day in Brooklyn, New York, I was taking my usual walk and admiring the trees that towered over the sidewalk on both sides of the street. As I was soaking up the beauty of the various flowers, I wished I could photograph the brilliant colors so I could bless others by sharing them.

I happened to be carrying the same cell phone with the broken camera.

As I strolled leisurely up the street, an impression came to me: Try the camera.

I was surprised, but I obeyed the impression.

What a surprise! The camera worked perfectly.

I was overjoyed at the way it all turned out.

Now I was provided with another opportunity to archive memories from my walk that I could enjoy and share later. What a blessing! This experience reminds me of two things. First, we should listen and promptly obey whenever the Holy Spirit impresses us to do something, even if it does not make sense. Second, God is interested in whatever concerns us, no matter how insignificant it may seem. God loves us and wants us to know we are always in His care.
