Praising & Trusting God


“This morning, as I was reading a devotional to my kids before school, I realized that God was speaking to me. Whether or not my children learned anything, I don’t know. But, God was definitely speaking to me!

My day had started with the parents of the children whom I usually babysit on Thursdays all cancelling at the last minute, all for different reasons. As I hung up the phone, the first thing that came to mind was – How am I going to pay for food shopping this week? I started feeling very nervous inside, knowing that food shopping is the only thing I financially help with for our family. My husband works hard physically to pay the house bills and I didn’t want to bug him for money to go food shopping when that’s the only thing I pay with my money.

Wait a minute. I help? I pay? My money? What was I thinking? I often forget that it is God who is blessing us each week! It’s really all God’s money anyway. I certainly don’t have to worry!

I realized that the real issue here is my pride. I brought this before the Lord when my kids got on the school bus, then I just started singing praises to our King – out loud! “My God is so awesome, so strong and so mighty. There’s nothing my God cannot do.” Afterward, I called my husband at work and he confirmed God’s awesome power. There would be grocery money this weekend!

I am learning more and more that God wants me to be humble with Him and my husband.

Here is another wonderful thing: I’ve been praying for God to give me time to be still before Him, because when I’m not working for someone, I’m either at my Nan’s nursing home or my kids’ school. And, that’s exactly what He did! He gave me 7 hours today, just to be with Him! When I got nervous about not working today, God reminded me to trust Him.

Thank you, Lord Jesus! I’m sorry that I didn’t trust you with my whole heart a lot sooner!

The key verse for the kid’s devotional was Psalm 119:133, “Direct my steps by Your Word.” The lesson I learned today – trust God for each step in my life.”
