'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

So, well here's the news.

I came back from America,
I quit my job while I was there (to be able to take off time during Christmas/January which I needed to). I made a deal to work for one more month.

Now, Friday, that one month was over.
Monday I called an agency to be able to work in different kindergardens (they just call when they need you to work). I'm still working on it, and the process is way bigger than I thought. I applied for a police certificate today, but it won't be here until next week, and then we need to set a date for an interview.

Which means:
no job this week, no job next week, perhaps not the week after either.
And in the end of that week I'm already at the dates where I needed time off work.

I gave this over to God a very long time ago.
Ever since I started thinking about quitting.
And He has promised He'll guide me in the way I should go.

And well, this looks like God closing doors.
I'm starting to realise that God might not be planning on me working until the middle of January...
Um, I didn't think of that.

So here's my case.
I need money. And I need a job to get that money.
And God knows it.
I'm going to be given a hard time by people I know
about my irresponsible act of not having a job when I need money.
But God knows this.

And I am going to trust Him.
Even if, right now, I don't see where that path in front of me is heading.
But I'm going to trust Him.
His promise, that He won't leave and not forsake me.
That He loves me.
That He knows what He's doing.

'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
just to take Him at His word.
Just to rest upon His promise,
just to know: thus saith the Lord.
Jesus Jesus, how I trust Him,
how I've proved Him o'er and o'er.
Jesus Jesus, precious Jesus,
oh for grace to trust Him more!

I'm singing as loud as I can,
not to hear all the voices of worry shouting to be heard around me, in me.
Oh, for grace to trust Him more!

Dearest åslaug
Yes, trust. He is your KING and He is your Savior. I love the way He often saves us from something unpleasant or ill-fitting. Living life to the fullest looks VERY different than living a life without Jesus. I can't wait to hear what He does. He's amazing! YOU are such a star.

Dear aslaug,

I cannot even tell you the number of times that something similar has happened to me. Situations completely out of my control that have made me look irresponsible, foolish, or other things. I have wasted time fretting about how I looked to others instead of just trusting God and thinking on this verse:

Romans 8:28 (King James Version)

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

God does love you and this will all work out in His time. When circumstances just seem to be working against us, we have to wait and see what God has planned for us.

Jeremiah 29:11 (King James Version)

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Tis so Sweet to Trust in Jesus is one of my favorite hymns. So simple, yet so profound in it's message of trust, of hope, of love and of His all powerful grace.

((aslaug)) many hugs and prayers sent your way this December day. Please e-mail if you just need someone to "talk" to.
