Proverbs 3:5-6
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.
