transaction of will

When I am afraid, I will put my trust in you

– Psalm 56:3

Fear, worry, and anxiety emerge from an unbelieving heart.

God doesn’t believe for us.

Lord, help us overcome our unbelief. Help us get over ourselves and believe in Your character, Your love, and Your promises.

Faith is a transaction of will where a person transfers his trust to God.

give thanks – day 7

Today, I am thankful for the sovereignty of the Lord.

It is absolutely amazing how He perfectly orchestrates things to fall into place as soon as our pursuits match his.

For a selfish, head-strong planner like myself, that hasn’t always been often. However, I am excited at how quickly things are happening and thrilled with the direction they’re going.

The Lord has made it very clear that I should extend my time in North Carolina to more actively pursue Biblical counseling. To be quite honest, I didn’t have plans to stay here or to move forward in that direction. But the Lord has spoken so clearly into my life and those around me to confirm this is the right direction for now. What thy means or the future, I have no idea. But He does, so I am resting in that and pressing on.

With this new direction come huge changes: Stephen will start looking for jobs here after December, my work schedule must change to do my counseling internship, there are other classes I have to get permission to take before I can move forward, etc.

But the Lord has clearly shown he is in control! And I think he knows I needed to see that in order to move forward–Oh me of little faith!

But within 2 days, my academic changes were approved, the counseling department and dean are making sure the transition is smooth, they are helping grant special permissions for the courses I need, I received all the information necessary to apply for Summit’s internship program, AND my boss agreed to help me make my work schedule more manageable for the future. WOW!

Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.

That is the cry of my heart today.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. – Isaiah 41:10 NIV
