So...I am one of 5 girls who share in a weekly bible study at my work, every Wednesday during lunch. It is a time for us to share with eachother and leave all of her stresses in our office and just focus on the Lord. I am so fortunate to be able to have this time (during work) to come to Him in the first place....and so fortunate to have such a wonderful and Godly man as a boss, Chip Milner. Well, we are on our 2nd week in the study, John 3:16 by Max Lucado. This week focuses on Isaiah 40:18-31. "To discover that God is in the midst of every detail of life-no matter how small-and to commit to trusting him in every situation."
I think we all struggle with this....I know I do. So many non believers want tangible proof that there is a God. And truthfully...so many "believers" do too. Here are a few verses that identify the proof that He exists....Psalm 19:1, Psalm 74:16, Psalm 90:2, Isaiah 46:9, John 5:26.
This has brought me to a current struggle Eric and I are dealing with.....his last day of class is tomorrow from Aircraft Institute of Maintenance....where he is finishing his Technical Engineer certification. Well, a new degree=a new job, and he has been offered a job out of state. Me, being someone who likes to control situations and always plan everything out.....I have had a hard time trusting that the Lord will take care of this. And the Lord knows me so well....b/c he has shown me Eric's patience and trust every day. Eric really does amaze me at how trusting he is that everything will work out.....and that the Lord will provide for us. He teaches me so much.
I pray that Eric and I will give this over to the Lord daily and that I will trust the Lord to lead us in the right direction.
Since he has no needs, you cannot tire him.
Since he is without age, you cannot lose him.
Since he has no sin, you cannot corrupt him.
