I had to make some tough decisions this week. One, in particular, most people would consider ridiculous, especially when dealing with a financial strain. But I’m reminded of the verse that states faith without works is dead. If I trust God, I have to trust where he is leading me, even when it doesn’t make sense or circumstances become difficult.
I turned down a job. Yes, it would help get us out of a financial rut at the moment, but it would also pull me away from being home and putting my family first. I had to stick to my guns! A primary calling and priority for my life are being a good wife & mother and keeping my family as a top priority. There is a job that will let me do that. It’s just going to take longer to find than I’d expected.
I’m not trusting in my own strength or know-how. I’m looking past what is convenient or easy. And I’m holding on for dare life to be bold in Christ and step out of the status quo. I have to start believing that I can succeed at this!
And because He’s called me to this path, I already know He’ll bring me through it all. That’s the God-confidence I’ll lean on ’til He works it out for my good in the end. Keep me in Prayer. And I will do the same for you all.
