Trust

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord , thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV

Have you ever felt like you are all alone or maybe that the storm that your in will never be over? I know that I have felt that many times. This summer I quit my job where I’ve been working for the past 22 years. Over the years the founder had passed away and then things just went downhill from there. It got to the point, during the last couple of years, where it started being mentally and verbally abusive. Though there were times, when working there, where I felt like I would never escape the punishments I would keep coming back to God praying and trusting that someday things would get better. This past summer they did when my father-in-law came up and said to me that the company he works for had an open position and the pay would be right around what I was currently making at my old job. It was a blessing from God and the hope of a better future for myself and my family that I have been praying for. So when you feel like your stuck in a situation you’ll never get out of just keep praying and trusting God. Even if it takes 22 years or more know that God has your best interests in mind and He is watching out for you and He loves you. God Bless.

The message goes along with what was said here and it’s a catchy song.

Waiting

Have you ever had to wait for something? Waiting can be really hard. Sometimes you have to wait a day, weeks, months, or even years before you get your answer. Right now my wife and I are waiting to hear back from the underwriters on whether or not we are approved for our dream house in the woods. With us homeschooling our kids this would be the perfect place to live. Peace and quiet, nature studies once the temperature gets above 0 degrees, and seeing God’s creation surrounding us everyday. It’s hard to wait, but while waiting I keep trusting in the Lord that His Will will happen. Sometimes that can mean that the answers we want may not be the answers we get. Waiting and trusting in God though will ultimately get us what is best for us. This may mean that you have to continue to wait but as long as you keep trusting in God good things will come.

“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!” The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, To the soul who seeks Him. It is good that one should hope and wait quietly For the salvation of the Lord.

Lamentations 3:24‭-‬26 NKJV

So no matter what you may be currently waiting for, keep on waiting and trusting in the Lord. He will bring His Blessing to you in the exact moment that is best for you. God Bless!
