Have you ever had those days when nothing seems to go right? To be honest it feels like I have been having a series of those days. Let me just start by saying I don't do well with uncertainty.
I like to be in control when I don't know what's happening next. I get frustrated, afraid, anxious, and annoyed.
If you allow it uncertainty can push you closer to God. I truly believe that maybe that is why I repeatedly find myself in situations of uncertainty.
Uncertainty has become a reminder that God is in control.
It's just crazy because I was all geared up and ready to complain. But while I was in the middle of writing this blog post I started watching a vlog by Life with Us TV.
Lynette and Stanley just so happen to be sharing their experience volunteering at Meals on Wheels. Which I have done myself in the past in Florida and Georgia.
If you enjoy this post, you may find these bible study blog posts helpful when it comes to maintaining your mental health.
In the Atlanta area alone there are more than 300 seniors on the waiting list. This means many of our seniors are going hungry. In the Richmond area, more than 3000 seniors are going without hungry.
The believer in me, thinks many of these seniors must have unparalleled trust in God because of the uncertain times they live in with a most basic need.
Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? Matthew 6:26-27 ESV
Needless to say, watching their vlog reminded me that there are others who are suffering and struggling. Many dealing with hardship is much more difficult than my own.
My Testimony about Trusting God in Uncertain Times
As I sat there writing this post feeling disappointed and rejected during my job search. I began to praise God because my family and I have a roof over our heads and food on our table. Many people are going without those simple things.
God is so good that today I can add to my testimony because I have a full-time job doing something I love. Helping give people the opportunity to work and provide for themselves and their families as a recruiter.
Let me not stop there because not only am I back doing what I love. But I get to work from home full time, which has been such as blessing for my family.
Now don't be fooled I still have foolish moments of pride. There are definitely still times when I get frustrated with work but I have often reminded Habakkuk...
If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. "Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him, but the righteous shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2:3-4 ESV
The book of Habakkuk has been such a blessing during this season of uncertainty I am in.
Sometimes the best thing we can do during uncertainty is wait on God. Pushing yourself to pray in those moments of fear. Asking God to show you the way in which he would have you do things.
Instead of doing things your own way. Trusting that no matter how wrong, how lost, how sad, or how desperate the situation may look God is still here.
God can use the misfortunes of our lives to glorify his name. Remember what God has already brought you through. So that you can continue to go forward with confidence in the Lord.
If you are struggling to trust God because of the things that are happening in your life please grab the Habakkuk audio study. This 4 part audio and 9-day reading plan will help renew your mind.
