Scripture & A Snapshot {Week 7}

Matthew 10:29

If God cares so much about sparrows, I can only begin to imagine how much He cares about each one of us!

This verse reminds me of something that happened the other day.

The battery in my garage door opener is almost out of juice, so it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.
My son knows the opener is temperamental, and he's heard me call up a favor or two to God for a little help - usually on the days we're running late. This particular day we were just arriving home, and not in a hurry at all. I had pushed the opener button a few times and it wasn't working. Then, from the backseat, I heard a little voice say
"God, please open that garage door for us!"

With the next press of the button, it opened.

Mark 11:24 immediately came to mind:
"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."

My four year old had faith beyond a doubt that God would do what he had asked, because he knows God cares for him and no detail is too small to take to God.

How fortunate we are to have a God who wants to be a part of our lives and not just sit back and watch us from a distance! He is right here with us, whether we see it or not.


I've been curious what the spiritual demographics of visitors to Scripture & a Snapshot look like and if you are finding this challenge helpful. So, I've made a 3-part poll and I hope you'll take a minute to answer.
These polls are anonymous and there are no wrong answers.


Want to join in this challenge?
Here's how to participate:

1. Select a photo.
It can be from your archives or a new shot. Please only use your own photos.

2. Add a scripture verse to it. 

 I really hope that you'll put thought into the scripture you're choosing, as well as the photo you've selected. The idea here is to give glory to God
Here's a link to a good Bible verse search engine.

3. Put the Scripture & a Snapshot button in your post.
You won't be deleted or banned if you don't. It just helps spread the word...and the Word. ;)

4. Come back here and link up your post.   
Please link directly to your Scripture & a Snapshot post, not the home page of your blog.

  12. Katie, it is amazing how God gives me the picture and the verse. I don't go searching for the two, I go searching for HIM and the Lord puts the two together. So, let me say this link you have let us share in is definitely designed by HIM. Thank you for allowing the Lord to use you, and letting us be a follower also.
    Love your photo of the bird & the verse.
    Hope your day is restful.

  13. p.s. I tried to vote and it said I had already??? but, I had not. Don't know what is going on with the poll thingy.

  14. Great shot and I love that verse - what a wonderful reminder that He does care greatly for us.

  23. Wow girl!! Look how God has blessed this!!! You had 45 link ups this week. I can't believe I missed it. I meant to schedule one and just totally forgot before heading out of town. Sorry. Your poll results are pretty amazing too. And as for the battery issue...we are having that problem with our van right now. No fun! But I tell Hannah can get in touch with God about it before I ever stop to ask. Oh to learn from them!
