All Things Work Together

Updated on November 21, 2015

Don't Worry

A theme that occurs repeatedly in the bible is "Don't worry." God already has an answer before we even have a problem. Not only has He given us provision through Christ's death and resurrection on the cross, but He has also given us a guide that explains how to access those promises. The bible is inspired by God Himself and contains an answer for any situation that you may be going through. But even the word of God can appear to be just a book if you don't couple it with a relationship with the Almighty Himself. A daily relationship with Him is so important because He can ask us to do something at one point that will make no sense to our minds. But we are not called to lean on our own understanding but to trust in Him with all of our hearts (Proverbs 3:5). Almost always, I understand afterwards why God asked me to do something. I'll always be in a learning and growing process and I know that by being in constant communion with Him, there really is nothing to worry about. After the situation is over, I find myself wishing that I would have praised Him more for the answer.

Mixed Situations

I love that God's purposes are so much greater than our's. We think that we understand why God would have us grow in a certain way. Later on, we find out that He had more in store for us than what we even expected. Also, I've seen different areas of my life connect in a way that I didn't expect but it was able to bring glory to God. For instance, at one point in my life, I felt that I was done with going to school. I was working at a daycare at the time and after about a year, my boss came up to me and asked if I wanted to take part in a scholarship that would allow me to continue on with teaching preschoolers. I said that I would think about it but I was thinking, "Umm, no. I don't want to go to school any more and I definitely don't want to be doing this for the rest of my life." Well I went home that night and prayed about taking part in the scholarship and I felt an immense amount of peace. I just knew that this was something that I had to do. Even after I had completed it, I didn't feel a leading to go anywhere else. So I continued working at that daycare. I figured that God had wanted me to do this to build my confidence. I felt confident about taking classes but I was uneasy about being observed while I was teaching. Getting this certificate did build my confidence but I did feel as thought there was a greater purpose for me getting it. As time went on, God spoke to me about going into children's ministry and as even more time went on, someone prophesied to me that I would be making a difference in the lives of children through ministry. I never would have imagined that the very first thing that God ever spoke to me about (going to work with children) would be the very thing that would catapult me into more of what God has in store for me.
