Philippians 4:19 "And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus."
I always thought that I trusted God with everything. But lately He has been showing me how little I really rely on Him. I 'trust Him' with those things that ultimately I can control or explain away if He doesn't show up. Money is different... Money has an 'amount'. There is no excusing if money doesn't show up. So as I have had to reach out to others through fundraising for a mission trip to the Dominican Republic my biggest struggle has been "What if no one gives" or better yet "What if the Lord does not provide?" By struggle I mean tears at night and difficulty breathing at the thought of having to reach out and to trust. Big struggles. I have had to ask myself what this is all about---what is at the core of this struggle? Trust...trust that He loves me and sees me; Trust that He has a plan and that He will take care of me; Trust that He will NEVER leave me nor forsake me; and trust that "He will supply all my needs". Guess what? He did it! He showed up through many loving hands and trusting people. He showed up through YOU. Through you He has shown me that I can trust Him with everything-even those things that I can't control or explain away. So Friends, thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing this 'Daughter of the King" to see and feel the love of a 'Daddy' through your giving and prayerful hearts.
