Don't Bother God?

Do you ever feel like your issues might be pesky to God?  After all, He has some global things to work on.  I often find myself praying small prayers throughout the day then wondering if I am becoming like a gnat to God.

But then the Holy Spirit reminds me that He is my daily bread.  And believe me I am a grazer.  I can eat all day long!  When Jesus said to "give us this day our daily bread" obviously he wasn't just talking about food.  It was a metaphor for all our needs but most importantly our spiritual ones.  Remember when he said "man does not live by bread alone, but by every word from God"? 

In Genesis it says that God met with Adam daily, taking a walk together in the cool of the evening.  I imagine they were talking about management issues since Adam was in training for taking care of the Earth.  If Adam needed it then, how much more do I need it now? 

God is not stressed out.  He is not too busy for me.  He can handle anything I come to him with.

We are like a sweet fragrance to him.  Always welcome.
