Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not onto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Trust. Small word. Loaded with meaning.
I did the One Word Challenge. You pray and ask God to give you one word to live by for the whole year.
My word was trust.
I was at the end of my rope. Spiritually, financially.
I was relying on myself to take care of myself.
I can't do it.
As I prayed, the word "trust" came to mind.
I was reminded of another time when God asked me time and time again, "Do you "trust" me?"
8 years ago, through the most trying time of my life,, as I cried out to God, he kept asking me that.
This time, as I asked God to give me a word to live by this year I heard, " Do you trust me?" Do you trust me to take care of you spiritually and financially?"
So I started praying harder. Trembling, I asked God to open my eyes and my heart.
I asked for help to trust him more.
I took all my bills, laid them on my open Bible and asked God to take care of them.
I quit my job today.
I walked away from a full time job with benefits and vacation time to go to a temp job at another factory with no benefits or vacation time.
Because I have had a restlessness in me for a few years. I have felt smothered in that place, and I felt it was time for a change.
I didn't get the job that was my first choice.
I asked God to lead me to the right place. I asked that if it was wrong for me to leave my job, that I wouldn't get a call.
Some people will call me crazy, and I'm sure a few already have.
But I'm trusting God.
