Trust In The Dark


I know that Friday posts are usually about my prayer life during the past week.

But this week is going to be a bit different.

Long story short, I thought that I was being interviewed and hired for this amazing job that seemed right up my alley. I’d be using talents that I had learned in college and at camp. I’d be paid an incredible amount an hour. I’d be able to work from home. I’d be able to move into my own place fairly soon. It seemed great.

But, there were red flags. I had at least a couple of anxiety attacks. I was uncomfortable with the communication issues. There were things that just seemed wrong when looking back on them. Things just weren’t adding up.

So I eventually ended it because I knew that this situation wasn’t where I needed to be. And even after ending it, there still seemed to be issues that we needed to deal with.

But, there are messages from God in this situation.

For the longest time, I didn’t feel comfortable with trusting God with my life. I didn’t feel comfortable with trusting Him to lead me where I need to be.

But from the beginning of this entire situation with the “job,” I felt off about it. Something just didn’t seem right. So I told God to make the job what He needed it to be. And it turned out as this huge scammy mess that I’m glad I caught on to fairly quickly.

But after catching it and ending whatever that situation was, I realized something. I was able to recognize that I need God’s help to figure out where I need to go from here.

So Wednesday and yesterday, I told God to guide my days, make them what He needs them to be, and lead me to where I need to be. And this time, I meant it. I wanted Him to lead me to where I need to be going.

So a train wreck of a situation is what God needed to do to get me to realize that I need His help and actually ask for it.

We’ll see where God ends up leading me and what I end up doing.
