The Little Things

I love archery! It is one of my favorite sports and today my wonderful mother took me to the shooting range to practice. Although it was fun I shot very poorly. When talking to one of the workers there she told me I could have changed my grip. It got me thinking: how could such a small change completely mess up my shot? I think it is the same in our lives something small comes along and we feel like our lives are completely off track. By small I mean not doing well at a competition or not getting that new job you wanted. While those things seem big at the time they are really small things. See God has a plan for our lives and his timing is perfect. If we can't trust him with the little things then whose to say that we will when something big comes along. Proverbs 3:5-6 says:

Trust in the Lord with all your Heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge him,
    and he will make your path straight. 

So in order to keep my arrow on track I have to fix my grip and for us to keep our lives on track we simply have to trust God. Will it feel like we loose control sometimes? Most likely, but if we trust God 100% our arrows will always land in the Bulls-eye.
