If you’re from Texas (or anywhere that I can get a t-shirt to you), I’m selling super cute comfort colors t-shirts! They’re only $25, and I’m aiming to sell 100 of them. If you can’t buy one, share with a friend who can!
All of that aside.. today I’m house & dog sitting in Arlington. I’m listening to my Hillsong podcast, and drinking my black coffee and eating watermelon. *cue “This is Living Now”*
One of my friends shared something with me that I’ve been thinking about all week.
She said, “I always felt an inner turmoil in my heart about finances up until I went on holidays a few weeks ago actually. It goes hand in hand with striving. Is God going to provide for you because you are in full time ministry doing “his work”, or is he going to provide for you because you are his daughter and that is what he promised he will do.”
Wow. Talk about fire, hey? God is going to provide for me (and YOU!!) because you are his CHILD, not because you’re doing “his work” or doing something for him.
Instead of doing like 100 things a day to further my agenda and stress myself out and then give up, I’m committing to just do ONE thing per day. And then sit back and watch God fight for me. I can take it easy and watch him provide for me instead of being burnt out trying to provide for myself.
Deuteronomy 31:6- “Be strong. Take courage. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t give them a second thought because God, your God, is striding ahead of you. He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; he won’t leave you.”
