Trusting in God When Things Do Not Make Sense

For several months now I have felt God calling me to start my own Blog. I continued to argue with God and explain every reason why I was not qualified to start a Blog.  One would think as much as God has worked in my life the last 3 years that I would immediately listen and obey.  After many months of hearing from God, praying to God, being awaken in the middle of the night hearing from Him I have finally listened.  I have no idea what I am doing, or where this will lead but what I do know and what I have learned is God is always faithful and will always guide us if we just step out in faith and listen.  We do not need to see the entire future, we just have to trust in Him and listen to what He tells us to do.

Proverbs 3:5-6 has been one of the main verses He continues to show me as I head down this journey as a once broken woman now trying to live her life full on for Jesus.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV

As you go about your day today, recite this verse.  Look back on the times that God has always brought you through when you place all of your trust in Him.  It is okay we do not understand.  He is the one in control, not us.

    I am not sure I could have stepped out on faith without God putting you in my life to pray for me and help guide me. You are such an inspiration to me. I absolutely love watching how God is guiding my footsteps. For once in my life, I am okay with the unknown knowing He is in complete control!
