With this new phase in life I am forced to trust.  
Trust the Lord to provide for our family.
Trust that He has us right where He wants us.
Trust that we are doing what He has asked us to do. 
All this trust is just plain SCARY.
I’m a worrier.  
About everything.  
But I don’t want to be.
I want to live a life of dangerous dependence on my Savior.
My plan is to start every week with a scripture and prayer theme for the week.  I’d love for you to join me, if you’re interested.  I need accountability.  Don’t we all?  
This week I’m meditating on this verse, to remind myself that He has me in His hands and is capable, loving, and generous, and sees me as His precious daughter.
Scripture for the Week: 
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear.  Is not life more important than food, and the body more important that clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not much more valuable than they?  Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”
~ Matthew 6:25-27
Prayer for the Week: 
Father God, Help me to trust you more every day.  Remind me of your extravagant, generous love for me and my family.  Give me clarity and confirmation that we are on the right path.  Let me lay my worries at your feet and not take them up again.  Thank you for being faithful and worthy of my trust.    
Do you ever struggle with trusting God? With what?
