My newest worry has gotten to me and drug me down a bit. My dad has reminded me - "Holly, just pray about it. He's always provided for you before." Mom told me, "Just pray about it." I know they are right. He has always provided for us. When one door closes, either it doesn't shut too hard or another one opens right up. Sometimes, I think Satan tries to block those memories from us and cloud them with worry. What reason has God ever given me to think that He wouldn't work things out for us?
On the way home tonight, I was burdened. All of sudden, this song came across my mind and I realized how well it fit the situation. Anytime you're faced with a decision, its stressful. If I choose the path to the left, something might happen later to make me regret it. But if I choose the path to the right, I might regret that one as well. Do I take the path to the left, right or stay on my current path? I think this song helped to ease my mind a bit:
Maybe that's my answer - I just need to stand still and wait on God to work things out for us. My absolute favorite Bible verse is:
Delight theyself also in the Lord: and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. - Psalm 37:4I need to try my absolute best to work for Him and delight in Him and He will take care of us. I definitely have some moving up to do. I hope this situation works out for the best and I hope our baby comes sooner rather than later but all I can do right now is work for Him and do good. Then, stand still and let God move. But standing still is hard to do.
Still waiting, hoping, and praying...
