Trusting Him When Some Days Have Clouds

Friday, was my last day at the retail store and was a very interesting one.  I was excited! Not because I was leaving the job but excited about what God is doing in my life. I was told there were not enough hours to keep me working.  This job was supposed to be a way to generate enough income with the other income avenues to pay the bills while I develop in this new area of writing.  But, it wasn’t available to keep.  The excitement of trusting God for what’s coming next is what made it interesting.  I realize there may be some challenges ahead but none that can or will overtake God.  My focus is to be on the writing and seeking the avenues that are purposeful in developing this area.  My mind needs to be on Jesus.  “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.” (Isaiah 26:3, NKJV). My post today is basically an expression of trust and really doing what needs to get done.  Worry and fret impair the ability to get things done.  When I think of what God has already done in me, for me, and through me, there is no justification for not trusting Him.  This year has brought some difficult things in my life.  Major change, emotional upheaval, loss of income and residence, and loss of relationship have been some.  But in the midst of these challenges, good and positive things have come as well.  Strength and vision, determination, and most important, a new level of trust in God. I know that others are going through trying times as well, I am certainly not the only one.  But God has shown me that He’s here.  “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Joshua 1:5 NKJV).  He knows the intimate details of my life and with all that I’ve gone through, I’m still here.  Certainly not because I’m superwoman, but because I serve a super God.
