trust

I always love a great testimony
of how God showed up in the most unexpected way
and He got all the glory
through a seemingly impossible situation.

 

I have a testimony like that
…it just hasn’t happened quite yet.

 

We put our house on the market early last year
believing God would sell it
claiming it
declaring it.

 

And He did sell it…356 days later.

 

A few weeks ago,
we signed a contract
started a fast
and began claiming giant things
and waiting for God to show up.

 

We had our own plans
our own ideas
our own dreams.
And every door we tried to walk through has closed
Every opportunity has fallen through.

 

And in the process
we have been frustrated
confused
discouraged…

 

but not defeated.

 

You see, I know I can’t make God’s will happen
and as much as I don’t like waiting
I never want to look back and see God behind me hoping
instead of in front of me leading.

 

Next week we close on a house
that we’ve lived in longer than any other house
and God has yet to open the door to the next house
we will call home.

 

And although not having a plan I can see with my eyes
makes me uncomfortable

 

God has used every step to teach me
He is worthy to be trusted
and I need not be afraid.

 

Psalm 121
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;

4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;

8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

One thought on “trust

  1. Sheila,
    God is faithful and I have seen him turn impossible situations in our life around very quickly. Just when I think it’s too late, He shows up BIG! It is never the way I imagined and I’m glad because His plans for us are always better than anything we can imagine. Stand on his promises-in spite of your situation and you will see Him move at just the right time. In the process, he will stretch you and grow you like never before. When you are in a place of total dependence of Him then you are in a place to see Him do miracles! I’m praying Psalm 20 for you and look forward to seeing God work in a mighty way!
