I've been thinking about this post for several weeks now. I feel as if God is shouting at me "just TRUST me". It's very hard for me sometimes. I'm a concrete person. I tend to like to see things right in front of me. Especially when it has to do with something about my kids or my family...I just have a much harder time than David. Everyone knows how the economy has affected people. And it's affected us. It's been hard lately. But I also know that whenever God surrounds me with the same message from all different sides (sermons, biblestudies, books, other blogs, etc, etc) - he's trying to get through to me. You've heard me talk about my biblestudy before. This Living Beyond Yourself stuff is hard! Supernatural hard. But that's the point. And so I am really trying to stretch beyond MYSELF and let God show His power the way He likes to. And not worry about the fact that Josiah is growing out of pants and shoes faster than I can even comprehend. And not think about how much more annoying it is that winter clothes are more expensive than summer clothes. Or about how Christmas is around the corner. I have much to be thankful for. MUCH. I KNOW that. And so I will choose to obey. Even though it's hard. And scary. And unknown. Because that's what I've been called to do. And I've seen the rewards of obedience in the past. And God always comes through.
