Trust

Day 11_Trust

As a Christian, I don’t like to admit when I am running from fear. But this week, it caught up with me. All of the “what if’s” connected to my unemployment, the fact that my husband is making very little money right now, and the fact that we have an ever growing pile of bills, let alone our rent, all coming due in just  a few short weeks. I’ve tried so hard to push it back to where it came from, but sometimes it overtakes you.

One thing I realize this week is I let my guard down. I’ve lacked a few days of Bible reading, I haven’t been pressing in to His presence and I know that He is the only one that can give me the peace that I so need in this season. In the midst of the storm, I took my eyes off of Jesus and found myself in the dark, mirky water, reaching for air.  I forgot to put my armor on this week, and left myself open to spiritual, physical and emotional attack.  Fear got a hold of me and sat like a ton of bricks on my chest. I felt crushed underneath the weight of it, gasping for air as I cried out to God to bring breakthrough.

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. (Philippians 4:12)

Contentment does not come easy for me. I am working on accepting my reality as a gift from God. In all things, in plenty and in want, in lack and in fullness, He is God, and He is good. I long to be content in every situation, yet most often than not I find myself yearning and seeking after that which may or may not be a part of God’s plan for my life.
