Praising the Lord for Essie!

Today, I was on FaceBook reading an article and I noticed on the sidebar an advertisement for Essie Nail Polish.  The first thing that came to my mind was a memory of a prayer that God answered for me.  

My husband and I were on a little get-away and while we were there I wished that I had painted my nails since we were going to be going out to a nicer restaurant.  Now, while I love to shop there are some things I do not like to have to spend my money on, and one of them is nail polish.  Oh, I like to have my nails polished, I just don’t want to spend too much money on it – especially since it chips off, and once that happens it’s over with – I can’t rest until it is all peeled off!  So, I prayed and asked the Lord if I could find a good nail polish for a good price.  You see, just because I don’t want to pay a high price for nail polish doesn't mean that I don’t want one of good quality and with a higher gloss.  I was so pleasantly surprised when I went in to the beauty store and found Essie Nail Polish on sale for $2.99!  I am sure the gal at the counter thought I was a little nuts when I told her how happy I was to find the sale and that I had prayed I could find a good nail polish for under $5. I guess she wasn't used to having people praising the Lord for inexpensive nail polishJ

As I reminisced over my answered prayer I thought about how nice it is to have special memories like that –ones that remind me of how the Lord will even supply my silly little requests.  I don’t think God really cares if my nails are painted or not – but He showed me that He cares about me and the things that I take the time to ask Him for.  I know this is true because Jesus told us so in many instances, but especially in John  14:13, 14 which says, “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”

I am certain that the Lord loves to hear us pray to Him. He told us He wants us to abide in Him, after all He created us for Himself – “all things were created by him, and for him:” Colossians 1:16.   So today ladies I encourage you to ask what you will… “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”   Abide in the Lord, let His Words abide in you, and then ask what ye will and He promises that it shall be done unto you! 

I love having sweet little reminders of God’s answered prayer for even the littlest things – because to me they show me all the more that He cares for me, little ole me and my silly little quirks...and He does for you too!

Have a wonderful day!
