Sometimes it takes a little FAITH

I’ve had this certain question running through my mind over the past couple of months that has not left me......


What do you do when everything you have done has not been enough?  


Now, if you haven’t given it everything and by everything I mean strength, focus, pure determination, blood, sweat, and tears, then maybe this question doesn’t apply.  If you have, then I believe at some point in your life this question has come up.


Now, for the past 5 months I have been away from my family providing while we make the transition to move up to another state.   Being away from my family has not been easy, but it has been necessary.   I’ve had multiple interviews, screenings, projects and presentations and so far I’ve come up short. 


I truly believe with all of my heart, that situations like mine are where your faith is tried and tested.   Sometimes God just has different plans for you.   Sometimes he’s teaching you and helping you to grow.  Sometimes it’s all about timing, and if you wait a little bit longer things will begin to fall into place.   We have to come to a place where we trust.  It doesn’t mean we stop preparing, praying, or looking for opportunities.  It does mean that we have to settle it in our hearts that we have to be okay with uncertainty.   God sometimes has to take back the reigns, because we are trying to do everything in our own strength.   If there is anything I’ve learned in my adult life, it’s that nothing remains the same.  Life is constantly changing and sometimes we can only prepare so much. 


I encourage you today to have faith, and trust that there is a reason and purpose for everything.
