Leaping toward financial peace was an all out act of faith for my hubby and I. We were at a point where we knew we had to do something yet we had no idea how it was all going to pan out. Ignoring unsolicited advice from well meaning people was one of our biggest challenges. Tossing the naysayers comments to the side we began doing the things we needed to do to secure a new job we could do as a couple for the summer months. We started the process in the middle of March with the expectation of beginning work by June at the very latest.
Much to our surprise we received our first offer to work at the beginning of May! “Oh no,” we cried, “we can’t possibly be ready right now.” Time pressed on and the calls became urgent. In my heart of hearts I feared that if we did not take this leap toward financial peace we might just miss out on this opportunity altogether. The call that put us on the road figuratively and literally came on a Wednesday late in the morning; by four something that very afternoon we were on the road. I worked our first shift the very next day, May 15th.
As unprepared as we felt we were each step of the way the Lord was guiding us and the steps of uncertainty became leaps bound in faith. We were called to do things we had never done before which led to results we had never seen before in any of our previous efforts. I am by no means saying it was easy, but being obedient to the things we were called to do led to fruitful results.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
I don’t know all the details of what lies in store for us when we return to the Rio Grande Valley but I am certain of this–God is the Master Planner and He is in the details. In being faithful with a little I wait expectantly for His leading toward the next right thing. When did you last surrender a circumstance to the Lord not having any idea how it would all work out?
