As I sit here in our new apartment, which we moved into a couple of days ago, I’ve been thinking about how far God has brought me in life, as well as how far He has brought my husband and I as a couple.
For myself individually, I know God has brought me a long ways in my trust in Him. I grew up not being able to trust my earthly father. Though I trust Him now, it has not always been the case. As a result, it has caused some issues with me being able to trust my heavenly father. So, God has taught me to trust Him to take care of me and not make any one person my source. Only God can be my source.
God has my back. I don’t need to worry about anything. His word says that he will never leave me not forsake me (Deuteronomy 31:6). It also says:
Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me. Psalm 27:10 NIV
Those are comforting verses to me. They remind me that God is always with me and I can always go to Him. He will guide and protect me.
As I have gone through this move, I have had to learn another level of trust. We came out here without jobs with only God directing us to come. God told me to follow my husband. This meant I had to give up control of a lot of things.
We got here. God provided jobs for both of us. He provided us with our own place to stay. He has made sure we didn’t go hungry or lack anything. I know that He will continue to provide. Thank you, Lord.
As a couple, we have learned more about working together. We have talked and, most importantly, prayed about our decisions. God has led us to be where He wants us, which makes me happy.
I feel like my husband and I are closer than we used to be and that we are both closer to God.
