New Post: "Buying a Home Challenged My Faith"
I believe God has a plan,
And I am positive I don't know it.
Often I ask God to reveal His plans to me,
But sometimes I run ahead on my own.
I get going so fast,
Making decisions, changing directions, weighing options,
That I for get to include Him.
Here is a challenge I was reminded of this week...
God cares less about what job I do, and where I work,
Than how I do my work once I have a job.
Do I work as if it is for Jesus Himself?
Or am I working for men, money, and my own designs?
Now, I have the chance to buy a home,
And as I weigh the decisions of price, location, nearby schools,
I am trying to ask God what He wants me to do.
Do you know what is most frustrating though?
Partly it is not hearing a clear answer, but
It is also worrying too much
about making the wrong decision on my own.
If I make a poor choice, can I still trust God?
Buying a house is definitely a "first-world problem",
But putting too much emphasis on my decisions,
Takes the focus off of God,
And the fact that He can use me, no matter where I live.
I can trust God to provide for me and my family,
No matter where what house we choose.
When you face a "weighty" decision,
Do you place to much importance on the outcome?
Or do you realize the most important part,
Serving God no matter the location, or problems that arise?
Can I praise God regardless of what happens?
I will choose to seek wisdom,
yet I will praise God even will troubles arise,
Because my faith is in Him!
