Trusting Him To Make a Way Out of No Way

black-woman-stressed (2)

It is easy to talk about faith and patience until you are in a

situation where your faith is put to test. After I resigned from my

job due to the apparent unfavorable conditions, everyone thought I was

crazy and that I had made a wrong decision. I thought I would be at peace, but… worry

and anxiety started creeping in, all sorts of thoughts started

creeping into my mind and then depression set in.  I was down for a

while and then I decided to go for a special service on Sunday where I

heard a message about faith.  At that point I remembered how my faith

had worked wonders for me in the past and I decided to focus on God

completely. I kept reminding myself that God

has never forsaken me.

After two weeks, anxiety crept in again, I was checking my phone and

mail box constantly, anytime I saw someone dressed in work attire I

would become sad and worried.  I had no idea that God was taking me through

a refining process and He was going to answer me when He knew I was

ready. I decided to adopt the weapon of praise, and I thanked God for

every little detail. One evening while surfing the internet for

opportunities, I saw the name of a firm and decided to apply. Guess

what? I was called for a test the next day. After the test and

interview I prayed to God that It would work out in my favor. Then the

waiting began. I waited… day 1, day 2 day 3….anxiety started

creeping in (AGAIN). I prayed and asked for God’s perfect strength

proclaiming Matthew 6:25-34. I reminded myself of Sarah, Joseph,

Hannah and all of a sudden strength and peace filled my heart. I was

reminded at that point that without faith it is impossible to please

God.  I say this because without faith that He loves, cares and looks

out for us, we will constantly feel that He is not listening or

watching over us. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

A week later, while I was making some inquiries for personal business,

I got a call that I had been offered the job. Words cannot express the

joy I felt, I ran to church to thank God and I knew I had to share my

story with others. It was the stories from this platform that encouraged me during

this process and I hope my story encourages someone else too.

Trust in the lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him and he shall direct your path (Proverbs 3:5)

Hi Thank you for sharing your testimony. I know I came across this article for a reason. I am in bit of a situation right now and I need the Lord to work this out this week! It must be worked out this week! So please stand in agreement with me that He will work this situation out that I am in this WEEK! We have to constantly remind ourselves of God’s promises and what He has already done for us and how He has come through in the past.
