But in God's perfect timing, my friend had told me about a job opportunity at her church. I was nervous about that too, not knowing what to expect. It was right when I really started to worry about how I was going to pay for life, that I started my job at the church and my personalized hanger orders started coming in. Do I think this is coincidence? Absolutely not! I didn't even think my hangers were good enough to sell! God knows my heart and hears my prayers. He was teaching me that I might not always get what I want, but he will always provides for my needs.
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? - Matthew 6:25-27
I just Googled "verse about" and the first thing that popped up was "verse about trusting in God". I guess it comes up frequently in Google because people need to trust God more.
How fitting that the sermon at church was about growing in our trust in God. Maybe you are going through a difficult time in your life. You might not be able to see the purpose in your struggle. For the most part, I still don't. But know this, there is a God who loves you, and loved you before you were even created. He has a purpose for your life, and if you let him, he will walk with you with each step that you take. I'm not going to write as if I trust God 100% of the time. The reality is that I don't, and for this reason, he gives me reminders like these, that he is in control. How amazing God is, that he loves us no matter how many times we fail, or try to do things on our own. I hope this post is an encouragement to you.
God is awesome.
