It is easy to talk about trusting God when you feel like you’ve been provided for. It’s those times when provision feels so far away that tests faith.
I’m not going to lie… I have felt so discouraged lately. I know what God told me, but learning to trust Him has been one of the hardest lessons of my life.
God gave my husband and I the option to go down a specific path that would lead to His promises. We chose that path with hopes and dreams in our pockets. Somewhere along the way, things got really difficult, spiritually, emotionally, and financially. We’ve battled with giving in to other options that weren’t what God placed in front of us, all because we were scared that God wouldn’t come through to provide for our needs. It has been a struggle to have faith in God’s promises when our circumstance looks completely different than what we expected being four years down this road.
I think that is the point though.
Every time we wanted to give up God would speak something into our lives and it would lift us up again, just long enough to make it to the next time. Then He would be there again, with love and patience, nudging us back in the right direction.
He has been teaching us to see what we can’t see.
Faith is having absolutely no options on the table and still choosing to believe God meant what He said.
We are finally beginning to see the fruit of this. My husband got a job today that could be a turning point for us. It’s not about the money, but rather how it will prepare us for what God has promised. All to God’s glory!
I am amazed at how even when we drag our feet and lose faith at times, God is still there to pick us up, guide us, and show us what He can do!
