It never ceases to amaze me how no matter what kind of day I’m having, I read a Bible verse, hear a song or find myself in a situation that reminds me who is in control. This song came on the radio at the perfect moment when I was feeling stressed, discouraged and just not great.
How can you not feel better after hearing this song? I mean really, serious boost right there.
There is also a version playing on New Life Radio that has sound clips about the May 22 tornado, that one really gets me. I haven’t been able to find a video or sound clip of it, but if I ever do I will post it.
As I pour out my heart this things I remember
You are faithful God forever
The last month has been a little rough, Josh has been without a job. It’s at times like these that I consider myself very lucky to have two jobs. But it’s still a very stressful situation to be in. I know that God puts us in situations to bring us closer to Him, but it is easier to say ‘I will completely trust God in this’ than to follow through on that.
Josh has had several promising interviews, now we are just waiting to see what God will do. I know He has a job out there for Josh, and I know it will come our way when the time is right, it’s just sometimes I’m not so great at the whole waiting thing.
I think this week God has been trying to remind me that His timing is perfect, mine isn’t. I want Josh to have a job, not only for the financial stress relief but the emotion relief as well. It has really been a challenge for my faith. I am trying to take it a day at a time, any more than that can seem overwhelming. Each morning I take some time to focus my attention on God, ask for patience and provision. Some days I have to repeat this many, many times. But really, isn’t that what He wants? For us to completely depend upon Him for everything?
If you’re going through something I just want to encourage you that the things in this life are temporary. God is in control, He knows what He is doing and He will never leave you.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
