alma 36 - 38 - little things

alma 36 - 38

37:6 - 7 by small and simple things are great things brought to pass. And the Lord God doth work by means to bring about his great and eternal purposes; and by very small means the Lord doth confound the wise and bringeth about the salvation of many souls.

often small things seem just that, small. 
i have heard many stories about people whose conversion has started, life been saved, etc by some small thing. there have been small things that have occurred in my life that have not saved me, converted me or anything so grand, but just boosted my and let me know that God still cares. God knows my place and heart and takes time from His ever so busy day to do a little something to make me feel better. little tender mercies. little things that only speak to me, little things that seem mundane to others but have been accompanied by some impression from the Spirit so as to make the message clear to me.

look around you, God is in every good things, look for His little mercies in your life. respond to the Spirit's prompting and you may be a tender mercy in someone else's life.
