“In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” Proverbs 16:9
“The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun –scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.” Isaiah 58: 11
I can really see God stretching my faith in a couple areas of my life; particularly professionally and personally. Lately I have been challenged to step out in faith. God is asking me to trust Him without seeing the whole plan.
Professionally I am stepping out and doing a live interview about my blog in the next month; I am very excited about the interview but also a little nervous. My six years interning and working in TV I’ve never been live; and the subject matter has never been my personal life. I just pray that I am articulate and people positively receive the message. I’m also excited for the exposure and who knows what doors God could open up in the way of my book dreams.
From a personal standpoint I recently had a test of faith in the area of relationships.
Luckily after several spins in this cycle I think I’ve broken it. By working to keep God first in my life He has helped me balance Him and a relationship. He’s shown me how He can be in the center of the relationship and how I can pray for that person and interact with him. How cool!
This trusting thing is a daily battle and sometimes I fail but it’s great to know God has us and even when we make mistakes our best days are ahead of us.
“As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace.” Isaiah 55: 11-12
