I broke a nail today. I know what you’re thinking. Did I come all this way for that? But hear me out. I have a relationship with God and I just love it. It hasn’t always been the best. If I’m real, there were times when I
cursed blessed Him out. There were times when I felt like it was a curse to be saved. There were times when I would intentionally ignore Him but those times never lasted long because, as I said before, I love Him. He is the sole reason that I am alive. God gives me strength and purpose. He knitted me in my mother’s womb and He knows me the best. God knows how to get my attention as well.

Let’s go back to the broken nail. My personal journey of nail growth is pretty short ( get it). My nails never got long. I tried everything but they were just too brittle. They would crack or fall off with the slightest touch. (That sounded like my testimony a little bit) It’s hard to admit but I felt envious of others with their amazing nail growth. The Bible makes it clear to make your specific request made known to God so I prayed that He would make my nails long. I felt it would make me feel more beautiful and more feminine.
It’s hard to admit but I felt envious of others…
It took years. It took so long that I forgot I prayed about it until one day I noticed that I broke a nail. It threw me off guard. I peered down at my hands and I saw these beautiful 1/4 of an inch nails gazing back at me. It was then that I remembered that God truly cares about me. I may forget about me but God never does.
I may forget about me but God never does.
He is so amazing that He will answer even the most insignificant prayers. For the dreamer this means keep on dreaming. Nothing will return to God void. If God gave the vision then there will be provision. The fulfillment of God’s word may be a long one. It may tarry but keep waiting for it. Keep tilling the ground and keep going even when you get weary because we know that if we faint not, in due season we will reap. If you lose your way take comfort that He will get your attention. One broken nail reminded me that I am not forgotten by the most high God. He has a plan for me.He loves me and He remembers me.
closing commentary: God heard what you prayed.
