Recently, my wife and I have been so blessed in so many ways by God. From stress about bills to stress about family, we have been delivered by God. I believe it is because we agreed that we needed to turn things over to God and let His loving hand guide our decisions. (Our decisions offered little to no relief.)
I think that we hinder the plan that God has for us by thinking we need to be in control. So, we decided it was time to put all our cares on Him and things have improved for us. Faith is so crucial in our relationship with God. I believe that when we lack in this relationship that it is failure on our part. This happens by having weak or restricted faith.
Once we understand that complete faith in God is only way to go, then the way is made clear for the changes that are needed. Deliverance comes from God and not from self. No matter how good things may seem in the beginning, the solidify factor will always be our faith in God.
My wife finally got the phone call she was hoping for and she starts her orientation on Monday. We are both so grateful to this deliverance from God which comes through His grace. Things had gotten type around here, but we kept our faith that it was all a part of God’s plan. I think that at times we create more stress on ourselves because we refuse to turn things over to God and let Him carry us through. This was something my wife and I discussed on several occasions and continue to agree on.
There was an opportunity that came open at the BOE that I decided to apply to and turned in my application today. Now we are praying that if it is God’s will I will get the call. If not then I still have my current position, blessed either way. Because of God’s grace and love for us we are provided ways out of the problems that we get ourselves into. Pray for me and my home when it comes upon your heart. God’s grace is all we need.
Sometimes I find myself getting frustrated over minor things and I question: Why me, God? Then I get a simple reply that pops in my mind: could have been worse. I know I am guilty of taking small blessing for granted. So maybe what I should be thinking is to thank God that is isn’t worse.
It is so easy to get caught up in daily living that I take my eyes off the major prize. Now I know why Jesus told the people not to store treasures up in earth. All these things will be gone. Finishing the race for God, it the eternal reward.
