It’s Friday! That means more to some than it does to others. To mean it means that I don’t have to get up in the morning to come to work, but it doesn’t mean that I get to sleep in. I am fortunate enough to love my job. I believe that God put me here for such a time as this. But when I first started in this department, I thought, oh my gosh, these people are so much smarter than I am. I was intimidated. They were using words I swear they made up. My Mom has always told me that I am smart, but some Moms have their kids on American Idol too…… As time passed, I began to learn a lot from them, but I was also able to impart some of my knowledge on to them. What I didn’t do was let fear overcome me to the point that I went running back to what was familiar. I pressed through.
I can’t say that I have done that in every area of my life. This just came to me….in another area of my life when something made me uncomfortable or was moving me towards something unfamiliar, I went back to a situation God had clearly removed me from. Why do we do that? Why do we trust God with this, but not that? The bible clearly states to cast ALL, not some, a few, one or two, but ALL of our cares or anxiety upon Him because He cares for you. The finite wisdom that I have leads me to believe that God cares about EVERY area of my life. Not just the big stuff. From something as little as, Lord, where did I leave my keys to Lord, is he the one?
So, my challenge to you to on this fabulous Friday is to trust God with, in, and through it all. He cares about the whole person and every situation. If He is taking you through something that feels uncomfortable begin to trust that He will go with you.
Happy Friday and…..
