And The Money Supernaturally Appeared!!

Yesterday everything I read-my book, my devotional, my Bible all led to the same thing-Trust God.

Obviously, this is something I should try...I'm like Ok, focus of today=trusting the Lord.

So when my back started hurting and my mind began racing about how I'll be crippled before I reach age 23 I made myself stop and say "God has His eye on me, I'll be ok-I trust him".

When I saw my folder of life plans, possible internships/grad schools/classes I didn't even open it up. "Today I am trusting the Lord knowing that He has a plan. My life will work out perfectly according to that plan b/c my eyes are on Him and His are on me!"

I began getting all freaked out about money issues. I was counting my money and was really upset at what I counted and i said "No! I will be fine and I will do what I need to do, and go where I need to go because I trust in the Lord! Money is not going to be a problem in my life!!"

I went about my business for the rest of the day, making a note to trust Him. And after awhile I didn't have to think about it-it just happened. I had such a peace and didn't worry about anything-and if I began to I made myself stop.

The word "trust" actually means "to lean upon"...

The Lord tells us to trust lean on Him...All I do is cuddle, so the thought of physically leaning on the Lord and not worrying about anything but knowing that we're in His arms, and He's only thinking about us, and all we have to do is just get real cozy and just love Him back--that thought gets me SO giddy!!!!! Goodness!!! to physically lean on the Lord...OH I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE DAY!!!!...but it's also so amazing, and wow....the creator of the world-all He wants me to do is to trust-to lean upon-Him.

Today I went to count my money again and figure out how much I'll take with me to go shopping. I sat down in shock realizing that an extra $200 somehow was with the rest of my money...not from my parents, not from anyone, and it def. wasn't there yesterday....


"Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord".-Proverbs 16:20

After one day of fully trusting and leaning upon the Lord in every situation, I have been blessed. I read and look at the word trust so differently, and I can say that every promise and statement made with that word is true. Our God is faithful.

So I challenge all of you readers to trust the Lord. Just try it. Lean on Him. Let all else go and cuddle with Him not paying attention to the business of life.

Trust me. It feels great....
