I was sitting in my office one morning and my the corner of my right eye began to itch. I did not want to rub my eye too much or too hard. I wear contact lenses and the last thing I needed was a ripped contact and a red irritated eye. The nagging itch continued throughout the day. I made it home and settled down and the itch returned. I lightly rubbed the corner of my eye and asked, "Jesus, what is going on with my eye?" Immediately, He provided the answer. He reminded me of the ripped contact I replaced that morning. Let me explain.

I had to throw out the old pair of contact lenses because the right lens was torn. When I removed the right contact, I noticed part of the lens was missing, but had no idea what happened to the torn piece. Well, the piece lodged in the corner of my eye. It remained in my eye throughout the day. It was the reason for that nagging itch.

I tell you this story to remind you that Jesus is not only interested in huge matters or situations that affect us, but also in the small things. The little itch that bothered me caused me to ask the Lord a very simple question. He is interested in me and what concerns me, and although the situation was not a major one, still, He answered me. 

Talk to Jesus about your problems. Talk to Him when you have good days, not just the bad. Tell Jesus your dreams or even better, ask Him about His plan for your day, for your life.  Jesus is interested in every detail of your life.

Be blessed.
