“But don't just listen to God's word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves” (James 1:22).
For several days, we were in a state of turmoil as obstacle upon obstacle was placed in our path. I would wake in the night and start to worry, all the while remembering that I had just been so proud of myself for not doing that very thing only a week ago! I knew that I needed to get on my knees and give this situation and my anxiety to the Lord. And let me tell you, I prayed! As I came before God, giving each problem and each worry over to Him, a sense of peace slowly began to spread over me once again.
As I prayed and released my burdens to Him, a still small voice inside me kept on repeating “trust, trust”. And so I did. I reminded myself that even if we didn’t get the keys when we had planned, God would still be with us. He doesn’t come and go depending on how easy or hard our life is...He is always there, right by our side. I needed to trust that He had everything under control and I was just wasting my energy and strength by worrying.
“Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done” (Philippians 4:6).
God has a plan in all things. We don’t always know what His plan is, but we can trust Him that it is always good! He has proved His faithfulness over and over in my life and I am so thankful! I don’t know why we came up against roadblocks during this move, but I can count on God to see us through. He has everything under control even when things seem to be whirling out of “my” control. By trusting Him, my peace is restored and my faith grows. I am so thankful for our God and the lessons He is teaching me as I follow Him.
